Minutes from the UX/design meeting 2019-Mar-28

Present: Franklin, Cor, Heiko


* Please change the "paragraph symbol" of "Traditional Chinese version" to "↵"
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=121177
   + tend to close as WF because the pilcrow is standardized and used not only
     the document but also at many places such as icons and
     Tools > Options > Writer > Formatting Aids (Heiko)
   + not needed to be changed (Franklin)
   + unclear how other programs deal with the topic
   + would require an additional option that increase the complexity
   => resolve as WFM

* Open Wiki page with information on new or changed behavior...
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=89660
   => make this a duplicate of 69042
* Add a "Release Notes/What's New" window to be shown upon first run
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=69042
   + new release, copy of /link to release notes
   => go for it
* Implementing a 'Welcome' dialog on first launch (creation of new user profile)
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=91441
   + first start, ideally more design oriented and in a wizard style
   + was removed because users considered it as annoying (see bug....)
   => resolve as WF
* Tip-of-the-day dialog
   + every start, content of https://pad.documentfoundation.org/p/marketing #388ff
   + https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/69498/
   + dialog works, review pending; when done marketing/documentation should get involved to improve the list of tips
   + ideally we have the list in the wiki (Franklin)
   => work in progress

* toggeling settings - e.g. threaded calculations - need restart, UI unclear about this
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=124323
   + same is also true for T>O>View>Graphics Output, for example
   + message box, tooltip, infobar, static text, footnote...
   + on macOS we have a tooltip (Requires restart) and a message box restart now/later,
     but that's not working on Linux, neither it's shown for Calc - multithreading
   => fix the bug (and maybe change to presentation to restart from a dialog to a static text next to help)

* Print (selected) pages radio button as layout
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=122707
   + layout follows functionality and that's missing
   => keep it and have the discussion on an extra ticket

* Rework of Options dialog
   * Requirements/Tickets: https://nextcloud.documentfoundation.org/s/RyJoZ8Nt6bNfSmt
     + request on BZ to make clear where the setting applies (general like OpenGL, per module like units,
       per document like Grids)
     + simplified dialog
     + apply the changes (without closing the dialog) and to reset to factory defaults (or previous configuration)
     + search for keyword
   + Categorization: https://nextcloud.documentfoundation.org/s/cPGtpCTJKTLRNBF
     + idea is to find out what property is basic and what is used by experts
     + large list of sections (bold headlines) assigned to persona
     + to avoid asking the community about all options we should narrow down the questionable items and do
       the assignment first in the team - and get more input later on questionable items
   * Basic design: https://nextcloud.documentfoundation.org/s/6BqcybB3RdCNSHL
     + depending on the outcome of the steps before we can talk about the UI
     + Andreas: disagree with simple/advanced but proposing controls to expand the options; would be
       nice to pick up the concepts from Writer; maybe a landing page
  => to backlog
