Minutes from the UX/design meeting 2020-Dec-17

Present: Swetha, Sascha, Patrick, Heiko, (KomaIP)
Comments: Jan, Gerhard, Csongor, Thomas


  * FIND AND REPLACE DIALOG: Allow users to see the replace result before
    moving to the next search
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=138285
    + not convinced it requires any change (Jan)
      + replacement lacks on proper feedback at most applications (Heiko)
    + how about repeated click interaction, optionally per checkbox,
      Replace->Next->Replace->Next... on the same button (Csongor)
      + needs to be optional, default should be the current (Patrick, Sascha)
      + checkbox may be labeled "Automatically progress on replace" (Sascha)
      + moving the mouse from replace to next and back is tedious,
        + change button label/function from replace to next - has drawbacks when
          the search parameters are changed
        + exchange next/replace buttons' position - totally confusing and
          bad usability
    + perhaps better not implement as it's a corner/expert case (Patrick)
      + feedback could be done differently, eg. via highlighting the replaced terms
    => comment; seek for a proper interaction

  * Remove Euro Converter Wizard from Wizard menu
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135580
    + might have been useful in the past but fully agree to remove (Sascha)
    + would have been better done as extension
    + can be realized per F&R
    => no objection to remove

  * UI: Confusing categorization of the 'Hidden' feature
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=138658
    => closed as WF meanwhile

  * Add label to "Settings" button in Template Manager and change label to
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=138846
    + agreed, and perhaps move the button next to the category dropdown (Jan)
    + add Move to this menu (Seth)
      + doesn't work since Move applies to a single template (Sascha)
    + label might be useful, wouldn't use Category as it sounds like choosing
      maybe better call it Manage; but not if the button is placed next to the
      categories dropdown (Sascha)
    + move to top but let it show a dialog where a list allows to pick the
      categories are listed with all possible interactions next to it (Patrick)
    => move the button but discuss first on BZ whether as menu or dialog
