Present: Sascha, John, Rizal, Heiko
Comments: Aron, Seth


* Insert image location points to AppData\Roaming\LibreOfficeDev\4\user\gallery
   with a fresh profile
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135474 => bug 132734
   + duplicate of tdf#132734 (Rizal)
   + good idea; query the default image directory (Aron)
   + see also bug 129292 and bug 43021 -> Options "last used directory" (Seth)
   + no objection (Sascha, Heiko)
   => do it

* Bad layout for extra options in save dialog
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135554
   + options without wrap, indented to the controls above, no columns (Heiko)
   + place "Save with password" and "Encrypt with GPG key" in a second column
     + auto extension not working (Sascha), IIRC we talked about this (Heiko)
   + edit filter settings applies only for text with encoding; according help it
     sets information in file header; place this option in the extra dialog that
     always pops-up (Sascha); remove the option (Heiko)
   => improve it

* UI: Settings for 'Printer" or 'Print to file" should be drop down box
   (or something else) instead of radio button
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135410
   + get rid of different defaults (Heiko)
   + dropdown or tabs is a bit better than radio buttons
   + wonder is this is related to Export to PDF; never used that (John, Sascha)
   => comment on the ticket

* Allow more font and position formatting for watermarks
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=115737
   + Position, Relative size, Absolute font size
   + keep it simple, no enhancement needed (Heiko)
   + agree with position, at least (Sascha)
   + some/all features are available in Onlyoffice and WPS (Rizal)
   => do it

* scrolling vertical tab bar instead of horizontal multi-tab dialogs
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=113418
   + dialogs with vertical "tabs" wouldn't be according the OS/DE anymore
     but make the application likely more appealing than (stacked) tabs
   + sidebar with large image and text might be a good solution for option
     dialogs but not in case of properties; good icons are very challenging
     and doubt it's helpful (Sascha)
   + would appreciate the sidebar with icon solution instead of tabs (Rizal)
   + never liked the tabs, go with sidebar (John)
   + ideally we have a solution that can be reverted if not accepted (Heiko)
   => comment on BZ
