   + always voting for the new button (Heiko, Thomas)
   + a few more pixels horizontally shouldn't be a big issue; and it's the same for Insert Table (Tomaz)
   + same name might be a problem for the users (Tomaz)
     + no change needed just switch (Heiko)
   => lets switch, AI: Heiko

* Revert "Menubar: move InsertDoc in ObjectMenu Subsection like in calc" (Michael S)
   + https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/56584/
   + see comments
   + consistency is a good thing, so it boils down how users understand "inline" vs. "native" embedding
     and they likely dont see the difference (Heiko)
   + agree with the difference of inserted reference (text doc in Writer) vs ("natively") inserteted objects (Charts in Calc) (Tomaz)
   + actually the patch has been reverted in antoher patch https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/57215
   => Andreas: please revert using the respective Gerrit function!

* Labels for "Cell value is" at "Conditional Formatting"
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=117647
   + Similarity to Excel paramount?
   + change to "n elements" is simple and improves the UI; workflow is in details anyway, see #c8 (Heiko)
   + agree with Kompilainnen and Bubli (Tomaz, Thomas)
   => let's change the label as recommended

* Reconsider paragraph break handling (Timur)
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=68271
   + Make it configurable?
   + Keep the default because there are many pitfalls around (Heiko)
   + But an option defaulting to the current behavior is an idea (Tomaz)
   => lets reopen and follow Timur's advice

* Tab stops in Writer
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=108273
   + show a "inverted" symbol in the ruler for right aligned text
   + wonder how it works with RTL (Heiko)
   + looks like a bug (Tomaz)
   => accept the ticket and follow the recommendation
