Minutes from the UX/design meeting 2020-Feb-11

Present: Heiko
Comments: Mike, Sascha, ibelin, Uwe


  * Enhancement: Field "Date(fixed)": remove or un-default
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=139141
    + fix date for documents created per template (Mike, Sascha, ibelin)
    + change the default and rename "Date" to "Auto Date" and
      "Date (fixed)" to "Current Date" (Sascha)
    + to minimize the effort for l10n we could just go with
      "Date (variable)" and keep "fixed" (Heiko)
    => do it

  * Add an APPLY button to "Number Format" dialog
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=138456
    + WYSIWYG preview in the dialog, no need for Apply (Uwe)
    => WF

  * UI: Merge Format Edit Sections with Insert Section
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=138678
    + after insert we need to edit (Regina)
    + redesign needed/beneficial so both use cases are handled
      with the same dialog?
    + insert and edit are likely using the same UI
    => WF

  * Writer sidebar minimum width is too wide when docked
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=131947
    + c39: introduce an option to override the minimum width?
    + sounds like a tempting expert option, +1 (Heiko)
    => comment

  * Spacing between footnote number and text should be fixed.
    A single backspace should remove it
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=139717
    + not an issue / by design (Heiko)
    => NAB

  * Calc UI: Make the comment UI more consistent
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=138247
    + disappearing comments is by design, see other tickets
    + check view > comments to make it always visible
    + acting like a shape vs. text box allows easy moving
    + comments in post-it style look good but lack the option
      to move, take a lot of space making it hard to comment
      adjacent cells (Heiko)
    => keeping the ticket for a while but suggest to resolve WF
