* UI Guidelines (Heiko)
    + context menus
        + questions about limitations of the amount of items - seems like a misunderstanding
    + sidebar
        + concerns about the fixed size (non-resizability)
        + position of tabs (at the top) - does not work when closed
    + dialogs (Heiko)
        + no good guideline for sidebar vs. tabs in the dialogs (what is better when)
        + navigation in the sidebar - is that too much efort though?
        + do the users in fact want changes there?
            + like, the text properties now have 9 tabs!
            + seems people like redesigns in general
        + should icons be used?
        + resizability
            + if well designed, no need to resize vs. resize gives freedom to the user
        + not much interested in redesign it seems though
            + let's not change without user's complains
* Sidebar constrained by content and resizable (Heiko/Jay/Stuart)
    + concerned that we contstrain the sidebar in the HIG too much (Stuart)
        + when it is too much in the development
        + and before its purpose is settled down
        + like: codifying if it should have fixed size or resizable is a bit premature (Stuart)
    + example: navigator or gallery are more dialogs (Stuart)
        + navigator is actually a floating windows (Jay)
    + sidebar - actually a hybrid between a toolbar and dialog (Stuart)
    + some consistency issue, but overall sidebar fairly consistent UI as is
      and how it continues to develop (Stuart)
        + becomes flexible & rich (Stuart)
    + there were additional ideas (like the accordion) (Heiko)
    + eg. page size is not necessary in the Sidebar (Heiko)
        + a cut needs to be found (Heiko)
        + sidebar should provide access to the most used features (Heiko)

    + discussion will continue at a future meeting (Jay)
* Next Friday's design session (Jay)
    + Friday session this week
        + not happening this week as heiko's busy
        + 1:00pm CEST / 11:00 UTC
    + List of possible future topics
        + Steve wants the sidebar "configuration menu" icon gone: "it's useless confusing, thus 
user unfriendly,
          creates frustration and clutters the UI."

* Easy hacks for Marek (Jay)
    + spell dialog auto-closing -
        + fix committed to master for writer and impress/draw (excluding calc) (Marek)
    + 'Go to Page' dialog -
        + will attempt to work on this (Marek)
