* Present: Cor, Heiko, Ibrahim, Jay, Kendy, Mattias
* Completed Action Items:

    + Jay: Update screenshots
      [has a couple of them, will send to the marketing-priv ML]
* Pending Action Items:
    + Default document view for Writer, single page rather than
        + Stuart: Change the default to single page
        + Jay/Stuart: Change the tooltip to "Multipage view" or
          "Multiple page view"
          [ - would
          be great to get that to gerrit]
    + Jay: Double check if we can change 'Spelling' to 'Spelling and
    + Jay: Send a mail to with the
      wiki page that collects changes in menus
    + Kendy: Collecting of the user information should be incremental,
      somewhere in the user's profile
    + Ahmed: Push the new Sifr icons he's done recently
    + Kendy: Talk to Milos wrt.
    + Alex: Gnome 2.20-style 'a' icons & Gnome 3-style text line icons
    + Samuel: Formulas and Navigator should open in the sidebar, not as
      a special window
          + Is that issue for the Navigator too (I dont read it from the
            issue) and in Writer the choice anycase was to allow opening
            separate too. (Cor, after discussion later)
* UI changes integrated the last week:

    + Improve focus handling in .ui files (Thomas Viehmann, Caolán)
* Last week's discussions that need a resolution:

    + Disable object, image, and character toolbars in Impress (Jay, Cor)
      To simply the interface by having just one toolbar above and below
        + unfortunately we would lose the possibility to change the
          style first, and then draw (Kendy)
            + it is different to how it works in Writer - there you have
              no other option than to draw first, and then tweak the
              color (Jay)
        + current way is similar to eg. Inkscape (Mattias)
        + if we used the sidebar more, it would allow more space for the
          slide (Jay)
        + but interaction should be improved there, indeed (Mattias)
        + what about to restructure this a bit more? (Kendy)
            + proposed a sidebar for colors etc. together with shapes to
              draw (Jay)
              wps draw sidebar -
* Discussions that need a resolution - continue the next week
    + Default insert image anchor and wrapping (Jay)
        + OK with changing the default (Cor)
            + is more concerned about habviour around page breaks, but
              that is independent (Cor)
        + anchored to paragraph, centers the image
        + is that preferred?
            + others insert as character (Jay)
            + changeable via the default style (Cor)
        + MSO has only As character, and To page (Jay)
            + "To character" anchoring should be killed ;-) (Kendy)
                + adds terrible computational complexity (Kendy)
        + will create example of various anchoring possibilities (Mattias)
* Discussions that need a resolution - backlog from the last weeks
    + When image anchor is set to 'As Character' it should set vertical
      align to top (Jay)
    + Unify wrap labels (Jay)
    + Unifying the location of 'Tools' (Jay)
    + non-breaking characters showing with grey background (Jay)
    + keyboard mode indicators in statusbar (Jay)
    + Underlines in drop downs (Jay)

* Icon Updates / Issues
    + Sifr
        + Matthias added a couple of missing ones before the release
            + thanks so much! (Kendy)
            + otherwise busy these days unfortunately
    + Breeze (Jay)
        + no news
        + Wiki with list of icons to design (Riddell)

        + custom LO icons

* Customization Proposal (Heiko)
    + added to the to-be-filed-GSoC-ideas above
    + published & finished - 12 votes
    + some ideas about events (Heiko)
        + events should be separated to an own section (Heiko)
            + how should that look like and how to launch

    + shortcuts still part of the customization (Heiko)
    + like the approach! (Jay)
* Change tracking sidebar proposal (Heiko)
    + also the dialog:
        + Edit -> Changes -> Accept or Reject... (4.3)
        + Edit -> Channges -> Manage Changes... (4.4)
    + (Jay)
          ms word tracking sidebar
    + threaded discussion (when changing comments)
        + do we really need that (Heiko)
            + it is hard to sort, and strange a bit
            + isn't it an overkill for change tracking? (Heiko)
                + adds another level of complexity (Heiko)
            + without the tree view, it could be cleaner + simpler (Heiko)
        + what is the intention - more space, or cleaner interaction? (Cor)
            + likes the Filter functionality (Cor)
    + buttons at the top or the bottom?
        + suggest bottom (Jay)
            + is more like a dialog
    + merge the toolbar to the sidebar too (Jay)
        + and kill the toolbar
        + buttons for next / previous change are useful (Kendy)
    + would be useful to have information on more lines (Jay/Kendy)
        + how that goes together with sorting? (Heiko)
            + maybe not necessary with filtering? (Jay)
AI  + read the Heiko's proposal (all)
        + will add some competitive analysis (Heiko)
