 * Final touches to the Calc survey
     + accepted ideas/comments, added to/fixed in the survey
       + drop question about gender -> done
       + What do you use LibreOffice Calc for? Personal, School... -> added
       + typo in "Liner(sp) and non-linear" -> fixed
       + 5 steps Likert Scale instead of 7 -> done
       + "select 6.." could become "Select 6 if you are not a robot" ->
         we removed the question
       + "Please select "No Answer" -> added an answer option
       + make it typograhically perfect -> the PDF was just to share the content
       + usage frequency - less than once a year, a couple of times in a year...
       -> we updated the answer options but didnt stick to the example since
         an office suite is something special
     + rejected ideas
       + why people don't use Calc more often -> would be weird for "every day"
       + number of items in Q9 (importance of Calc features),
         Spell Check, Formulas and Calculations, Rows and columns manipulation,
         Number, percent, and Currency formatting;
         combine text and cell formatting -> hard to say what to remove; we'd
         like to learn how users understand the features and answer groups might
         reveal this; we put questions into groups to make it easier to read
       + add descriptions to the answer options -> as for the expertise it
         should be clear anyway, and the other questions will not become useless
         with a bit fuzzyness
       + SUS
         + cut "very" from Q13 (SUS)
         + Ask "To what extent do you agree with the following statements"
         + hard to switch between positive/negative answers
         -> it's a standardized questionnaire with exactly these questions
         + alternative but still accepted versions
         -> familiar with the classic version, easier to compare with previous
            results; positive wording is acc. to Sauro similar to classic form
       + Age
         + age drop/to the end; rather ask how long using computers; if age,
           then year of birth
         -> year of birth is also not clear; age in years is common in surveys
         + age: add steps above 55 -> ???
         -> we changed the steps with the idea of pupils, students, master/ph.d,
           postdocs, mid-ager, retired <18, 32, 45, 65, >65
       + run the survey with a couple of people and evaluate -> usually a good
         idea but a bit overdone for a non-scientific survey, and with 10
         subjects we cannot group answers
       + More/other open questions (list your top 5 jobs, most important
         application, answers are you looking for) -> proposed open questions
         are more or less covered in the survey; idea was to give people (non-
         native speakers) an idea what we are looking for with the opportunity
         to answer freely
       + Q7 (now 8) size of data: average/typical is not the maximum -> largest
         is not the normal use and while both are interesting we decided to ask
         for the average
       + better split "How many sheets, How many rows/cols -> we want to learn
         how people think about size rather than get exact answers
   => many thanks for reading and commenting to everyone
      + start is planned for this week and it will run until end of July

 * "Input list" field: Add confirmation dialog in order to prevent lost of data
   + in general, input on any field requiring some action before okay
     is not checked; should be only a few cases, if any, and definitely not
   + adding a warning in this particular case sounds like over-engineering
     (field input !empty and <> list entries on okay) and interrupting (Heiko)
   -> comment and remove keyword but keep open

 * The visibility of inserted index entries is poor and editing is difficult
   + depends on the interaction and is flexible
   + no further input for 2 years
   -> resolve NAB

 * Formdesign: Design-Mode for the whole form could only be changed by
   "Open in Design Mode"
   + "form design mode" and "form elements design mode" or
     "controls design mode" (Cor)
   + "document design mode" and "form control design mode" (Alex)
   + current situation is "Design Mode On/Off", "Form Design", and
     "Toggle Design Mode" / "Design Mode" in context
   + commands are named differently (now), new labels wont help to reduce
     the complexity
   -> resolve NAB
