Minutes from the UX/design meeting 2020-Jan-28

Present: Heiko
Comments: Sascha, Stuart, Regina, Andreas


  * Don't retain image position when cut/pasting exclusively the image
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=139522
    + NAB (Heiko)
    + option already implemented but would need another paste special
      command without changing the image type, no opinion (Sascha)
    => NAB

  * On Writer's standard TB and Insert menu: replace current "Text Box"
    a draw shape (.uno:DrawText) with the interactive frame with column
    (.uno:InsertFrameInteract) control
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=139606
    + quite some effort (Stuart), good idea (Regina)
    + sdraw objects shouldn't replace main features of swriter (Sascha)
    + the frame has several advantages and should be preferred (Sascha)
    => do it

  * F2 for inserting textbox (shape) kind odd choice
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=139632
    + could use Ctrl+T, similar to Ctrl+K for hyperlinks (Sascha)
    + we could use F2 for manage templates, Shift+F2 in Calc (Sascha)
    + text box is not a frequently used feature and removal
      is much harder (Heiko)
    => resolve this bug as NAB, comment on the other

  * Should "Bullets and Numbering" in Writer become "Bullets and Lists",
    with consistent use of "List Style" in Writer UI?
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=139667
    + Bullets are also sort of list, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style/Lists#Bulleted_lists or https://www.w3schools.com/HTML/html_lists_unordered.asp (Sascha)
    + maybe "Apply Lists..." for the menu entry (includes transform and
      create cases) and "Unsorted List" and "Sorted List" for toolbar
      entries (Numb. List also include Letters) (Sascha)
    => ticket has been taken by Seth and patch is submitted

  * UI: Underline split button in regular toolbar
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=139701
    + adds functionality (Sascha)
    + +1 (Andreas)
    => do it
