 * UI: Autocorrect -> Autocompletion: Option to manually add things to the list
   + being able to directly interact with a list supports confidence
   + having an edit field also allows to add shorter words
   => let's do it

 * Empty table cell cannot be selected
   + Options - Writer - Formatting Aids shows the hidden character
     which allows to select empty cells (Gabor)
   + show a marker on empty cells when formatting aids is disabled
     + bad solution for users who want plain WYSIWYG
   + access needs to be simple (Uwe)
   + actually it's still unclear why cells are ignored (whether per
     click or via cursor right); a new empty table does not have this
   + the empty cells in the test document have set the hidden character
     attribute, so adding content does not show anyway
   + selecting hidden characters is not possible, it works like a cell
   => NAB

 * START CENTER: A GUI means to filter the thumbnail view list of
   MRU recent documents by module
   + hovering over the modules button could grey out documents that
     open with other modules (Jay)
     + to allow scrolling the UI might keep this filter for some
       seconds or until escape is pressed (Stuart)
   + more demands from bug 143593 (search) and bug 72671 (filter)
   + using 100s of documents and having the same list as for the
     recent document MRU is a limitation (Sibit)
   + show dedicated UI elements (Roman)
     + has some advantage for a11y (Heiko)
   + if the controls clutter to much we could hide it until some
     button is pressed and/or also provide functions via context menu
   => do it

 * [UI] On startup, showing recent documents, please allow selection
   of a set to open rather than just one
   + use multi selection and/or checkboxes to mark documents to open (Luke)
   + restore the whole workspace (all documents that are open on exit) (Heiko)
     + if a document crashes the app the document list needs to be cleared
   + access to start center / dialog with this part from within a module
     see bug 77590 (Mike)
   => do both

 * Add Expert option not to ask to save document if changed
   + safety first (Mike, Csongor)
   + expert option or environment switch (Jan)
   + checkbox "[ ] Apply to All" on the confirmation using Save/Don't Save
     on all dialogs (Heiko)
   => up to QA; UX must not be affected

 * Easy way to allow to protect individual cells
   + workflow of protect all cells and disable individually is the
     same in Excel
   + additional read-only state? (Heiko)
     + not a good idea better fix bugs and provide a special
       cell style (Timur)
   => do it
