Minutes from the UX/design meeting 2020-Jan-21

Present: Muhammad Rivan, Heiko
Comments: many


  * UX - While objects on a slide are being edited, notably text boxes,
    the new slide sorter Ctrl+Shift shortcut combinations (see bug 91909)
    incorrectly receive focus and move the slide
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=98404
    + resolve WF or change default shortcut
      + move paragraph in Writer per ctrl+alt+arrow
        in Impress per alt+shift+arrow, in Kate per ctrl+shift+arrow
      + ctrl+shift+arrow is select to beginning/end of paragraph or word
      + ctrl+alt+arrow? sounds good, and is not used in edit mode (Rivan)
    + add UNO commands and replace hard-coded shortcuts
      + quite some effort for not much benefit and different topic
    + changed for tdf#91909 with side-effect in tdf#139286
    => change the shortcut to ctrl+alt+arrow
    + scrollbars are connected under gtk3
    => AI Heiko: file a bug report

  * Visual indication that there is nothing to compare
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=138894
    + infobar or confirmation box (Heiko)
      + infobar is annoying (Rivan)
    + change title into "<document name> (unedited)" (Rivan)
      + very much unobtrusive; users will not spot it (Heiko)
    + shape with text under the text (Rivan)
      + needs to disappear when the user starts typing
      + quite a lot of effort for the corner case
    => simplest solution first for the very unlikely case,
       maybe it can be done as easyhack

  * Option to redact/ anonymizing file by replacing images by dummy
    or make them black (Sanitize media)
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=139331
    + there are means to (manually) cover images
    + but why not have an automated method if this is easy to implement
    => comment

  * UI: Selection feedback for inclusion empty line not great
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=139062
    + select all on empty lines shows only a thin blue line
      and the blinking cursor; is it enough?
    + if the selection includes the line break the blue feedback
      goes until the very end of the paragraph
    => that's sufficient meaning WF

  * Table>insert Rows should move the cursor to the new row
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=139365
    + Writer: table, insert row -> put cursor there?
    + expect the cursor to move to the new row (Rivan)
    + it would require to also go to the upper row if added above,
      or to the left/right column respectively
    => no objection to do it; low priority
