Present: Tomaz, Eric, Heiko


  * Participation in the design meeting declined
    + no response to the question last week
    + will ask people directly what we can improve
    + Bubli: criticizing the missing technical background of proposals
    + Samuel: lunch time around 13, preference is 9-11 or 14-16
    + Tomaz/Eric: it's okay but vacation time during summer
    + Eric: maybe better advertise the meeting to the community

  * New survey planned about LibreOffice Aspects
    + preview at
    + How many extensions did you install? / Do you install LibreOffice extensions on your system? 
    + Do you install the local help? (Heiko)
    + Did you read a tutorial/book/...? (Heiko)
    + Office suits: distinguish between online/offline (e.g. +Office 365) (Eric)
    + Use of mobile version (Tomaz)

  * How about a survey on Calc, Impress, or Writer with open questions like for Draw?
    + thumbs up

 * Change sidebar deck label 'Properties' to 'Formatting' (cont'd)
   + "Attributes" has no advantage; how about Inkscape's 'Document Properties'
   => rename "Style and Formatting" into "Styles"
   => keep "Properties" (too much fuss)

 * Switch default to 16:9 in Impress/Draw
   + good idea (Heiko), bad idea (Jay)
   + introduce a user setting or remember the last setting (Heiko)
   + perhaps make it dependent on the actual screen dimension (Eric)
   + run a quick poll (Eric)
   => postpone the decision

 * Width of font name field at Writer's standard toolbar 
   + well-designed to fit the total app width; only room for a few pixels
   + possible solutions: 
     + dynamic tooltip: maybe not easy (Tomaz)
     + splitter: also not a quick fix (Tomaz)
   => WFM because of workaround in the sidebar

 * Terminology for master slides in Impress 
   + Master Slide (Heiko, Sophie)
   + code pointers are easy to find (xml for menu, ui for sidebar) (Tomaz)
   => change into Master Slide

 * New layout in Impress 
   + white-space is not bad (Heiko)
   => new layouts would be nice

 * Pivot table, refresh all
   + 'Refresh All' under Data > Pivot Table would be easy to implement (Tomaz)
   + Not done automatically because operation may take some seconds (Tomaz)
   + But Excel has an option to enable automatic updates (Tomaz)
   + Better solution than refreshing on data change is to update when the user enters the pivot 
sheet (Heiko)
   + Duration is not known (no progress bar possible) and cannot get interrupted (Tomaz)
   + Users asked for macro to refresh all tables (Eric)
   + Macros wouldn't know if the pivot table needs an update (Tomaz)
   + Not the best solution; users can't know if a table is not up-to-date and needs refresh
   => go with a macro, meaning WFM 
   => new ticket with a good solution
