[libreoffice-design] Minutes from the UX/design meeting 2019-Aug-22

Present: Heiko


* Add option to show 'Apply Style' menu in plain text
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=62926
+ extra option or combination with existing
+ unclear what controls would be affected (Stuart, c9)
+ afraid of too many options if there are more controls (Heiko)
+ Tools > Options > View is across modules and "Show preview of styles" would be Writer-only (Heiko)
+ run a poll on the blog/ml (Cor)
+ https://design.blog.documentfoundation.org/2019/08/15/poll-about-design-preview-for-dropdown-controls/
* Add the new option under Options > View, next to "Show Font Preview" 40% (44 votes)
* Combine the two (and perhaps more) controls under the same option 29.09% (32 votes)
* Don't add another option 14.55% (16 votes)
* Add the new option under Options > Writer > View 11.82% (13 votes)
* Don't add another option and also remove the exiting "Show Font Preview" 4.54% (5 votes)
+ taking the 2nd and 3rd option together (combine and no new) the majority is against a new checkbox
=> combine the styles dropdown WYSIWYG preview with View > Font

* Safer application of options for each filter criterium in a pivot table
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=125864
+ having options for each of the 3 parameters is an overkill and impairing usability
=> WFM

+ Extend context menu in a pivot table with mark actions
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=125834
+ row/column selection is not limited to pivot tables
+ we have plenty of shortcuts to deal with data
=> WFM

* Support context menus for management of list entries in pivot table setup dialogue
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=125826
+ for accessibility it makes sense to have alternatives to the drag 'n drop actions
=> add context menu to field (Add to Row, Add to Column, Add to Values) and the
respective options at those lists "Remove"

* Support for multiple selection of list entries in data series selection
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=122007
+ multiselection in the chart wizard lists makes no sense
+ removing entries is only necessary if the selected range has not been chosen carefully
=> WFM

* Extended graphical user interface for the specification of several cell areas
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=122012
+ add +/- buttons to the text field for more graphical interactions (Thomas)
+ would be the fact for all cases with multselections not only charts
+ manual editing is common
+ it wouldn't be clear how +/- buttons work, in particular what is removed
=> WFM

* More explanatory title for "Compare documents" file select dialog
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=126618
+ rename the dialog title from "Compare to" to "Original document" (OP)
+ "Original" is not always correct (but most time)
+ have an explanatory static text (Thomas)
+ it's just a file dialog, adding text is a bad solution (Heiko)
+ help talks about "original"
=> let's change it
