Comments: Mike, Dieter, Eyal


  * E-Mail by using mail-merge needs handling of: "messages per connection"
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=155299
    + reasonable request (Mike)
    + add to Tools > Options > Writer > Mail Merge a frame "Options" with
      "Break every [ 100] messages for [  5] s" (the values could need a review)
    => do this

  * Allow edit of F1 keystroke
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=155671
    + makes sense to allow customization of all keys (Happy)
    + F1 has a dedicated command so it's just the limitation to customize
    => allow it

  * Include extension chart digitizer in LO 7 chart with Calc table
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=139933
    + LibreOffice is not an OCR tool, well suited for an extension (Heiko)
    => do not add to the core functionality

  * More centralized endnote/footnote settings
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=125876
    + rename Tools > "F & E" to "Footnotes/Endnotes settings" (Dieter)
      + +1 (Happy, Heiko)
    + add F&E Settings to context menu of footnote anchor
      + should be the fact right now
    + rename "Insert > Footnote or Endnote" to "Edit Footnote/Endnote" (Dieter)
      + rather hide this command as adding a random character is odd (Heiko)
      + it's the only way to insert characters not available as numbering
        lists like Arabic alef (Hossein)
      + keep and rename to "Insert Special Footnote/Endnote" (Happy)
    + make footnote numbering page-style-specific, rename the Insert > F&E
      dialog "Out-of-order Note" or "Special Note", provide access to Page Style
      from F&E (Eyal)
    + off topic here, depends on bug 155712; if footnotes were bound to
      page style it would be confusing for left/right varying styles
    => follow Dieter's suggestion except Special F/E

  * HYPERLINK DIALOG: Simplification of Hyperlink Process
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=130646
    + search for bookmarks or optionally sort alphabetically in the Navigator
    + Navigator shows the URL on hover
    + use case is "referencing of terminology" which would be Insert >
      Cross-reference (Eyal)
      + or rather Alphabetical Index created per Concordance File (Heiko)
    => sufficient methods, NEEDINFO
