Minutes from the UX/design meeting 2019-Jul-17

Present: AndreasK, BogdanB, Heiko


* Enhance autofill to better sense data blocks with empty cells or columns
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=126189
   + Stuart WF, Heiko WFM
   + MSO fills if first or second column to left (or when empty to the right) contains of data
   => simple logic, accepted

* Revise layout of HTML color palette swatches
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=126403
   => WF, better realize as extension
      + done at https://extensions.libreoffice.org/extensions/html-color-palette-update

* User customization of the styles displayed in the Sidebar 'Styles' deck
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=126204
   + make it a duplicate of tdf#69551 or change summary to "Store dropdown selection"
   => keep the ticket open for storing the dropdown index

* Writer styles: Heading subgroup for TOC related stuff
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=126257
   + sorting by name is bad as Title, for example, is placed apart from H1..H9
   + move "special" headings into a further subgroup (Andreas)
     + use "Table of Content" (Cor)
     + use "Index Heading" (Andreas) cause there is "Index" for the not heading stuff
     + "Index Styles" is used in the filters list
   + such a "Special" or "ToC" entry would have to be a proper style itself for All Styles (Heiko, Thomas)
   + sorting issue is not solved by an additional entry unless we start with underscore or the like
   => keep it boiling for a week more but close when no more input is done

* Writer styles: Addressee and Sender group in subgroup Envelope
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=126258
   + introduce a node Envelope and add address and sender to it
   + same issue: new item needs to be useful
   => keep it boiling for a week more but close when no more input is done

* Writer Character Styles are not intuitive to read
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=126277
   + add a somewhat artifical root for the exisiting hierarchical filter
   + eg. Standard (Emphasis, Strong Emphasis, Source Text...), Annotation (Endnote, Footenote...), References (Links...)
   + we run into the same problem as abobe
   => same decision

* How about anpother filter like "Hierarchy Simple" (Bogdan)
   + would solve the Envelope and ToC issue as well as character style list, if those styles are not so often used
   => good idea, will add this to the discussion on the tickets

* Show icon for styles that have a UNO command (Andreas)
   + icons would pop out and make the "interesting" styles more obtrusive
   => good idea, please file a ticket
