+ https://docs.google.com/document/d/1IPXkYMmyXQzoVUdMpnBeoQdf-LNp5_oNaqfW6OFhxqA/
+ Finalization of the design done
+ What scope is relevant to search?
+ Filter out items found in the function list, not the category menu (Jay)
+ The use case is turned from search into filter thereby; wouldn't do this (Heiko)

* Notebookbar (ggurbet)
+ hamburger button moved to right side
+ currently working on new right-side shortcut toolbox
+ marketing asks to make the NB non-experimental for at least v6.0
+ with current progress of student, i am doubtful that we will be able to make it non-experimental (jay)
+ default should still be the classic toolbar
+ Long-term project but major features might be implemented (Cor)
+ GSoC plan: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1xmtJPPnQfEWbccDSRD3-_xAmMGAMELs16VBXe1iLZ7Q/edit

Tickets

* List view for template manager
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=104154
+ Opinions pro and con a filemanager-like visualization
+ We've used "Thumbnail" view for both templates, and rendering the MRU to the Start Center, providing
a "List" view with full filename & extension has been requested several times, e.g.
https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=95739
and adding that representation as a list for Templates and Recently used documents would add
functionality so long as we do not drive
+ Pro: For a large number of templates a list view is very useful (Cor)
+ Search is provided for this purpose (Jay)
+ Still missing a good overview, maybe also sorting capabilities (Cor)
+ sorting alphabetically the template name does not provide additional functionality (Jay)
+ It's simply faster to work with a certain amount of templates.
+ Con: Template manager must not look and act like a file manager (Jay)
+ it's called a template manager, so add a manage functionality with a list view. Simple (Cor)
+ we have limited management features both technically and design (Jay)
+ File manager would be a bottomless pit, we cannot implement all features (Jay)
+ it's not about a full file manager functionality; no one asks that.
+ Stuart supported this hezitation about a file manager in c5, c7, c9 and closed the ticket therefore
+ Con: No other office suite provides a list view for templates (Jay)
+ then we can start dumping a lot of code.
=> Listview makes sense only as a detailed view with more than one column
+ Let's introduce creation date/time and person/department, last modification date/time and person,
size, location?, favorite flag...
+ Include sorting capabilities
+ Consider hierarchies (Eric)
