Minutes from the UX/design meeting 2020-Jul-30

Present: Krunoslav, Patrick, Sascha, Mr Rivan, Heiko
Comments from: Dieter, Stuart, Thomas


* Add individual close button to recent document list
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135062
   + right click on menu items not familiar neither discoverable, WF (Heiko)
   + changing features at place make sense (Patrick)
   + low beneift for high effort however => WF (Patrick)
   + disagree with the request too; no app has such a feature in the menu (Sascha)
   => WF

* Linked templates shouldn't obey "Save URLs relative to file system" option
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=131392
   + absolute or relative, one is always wrong; search in case of missing links
or WF
   + maybe let the user search for the reference (Heiko, Patrick)
   + templates usually remain on the same place; there is Tools > Options >
Load/Save >
     General > URLs relative to file system to switch between relative and
     absolute path (Sascha)
   + sharing documents with other users requires relative path and templates at
     a safe place (Sascha)
   + would be nice to show this setting (or be able to change on the fly)
     while saving (Sascha)
   + decide whether relative or not per input of full path?
     + bad solution as barely discoverable (Heiko)
     + very uncommon as path is specified above (Krunoslav)
   + expert option, feedback not urgently needed (Patrick)
   => WFM; maybe a topic for the help

* Make Select text by clicking in Margins MSO compliant
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=113932
   + special line selection feature as known from MSO or keep it (WF)
   + Cursor right instead of IBeam (Thomas)
   + vote for introducing the functionality for lines; should work the
     same for tables (cursor changes to pointing rigth and row is
     selected on click) (Patrick, Krunoslav, Sascha)
   + extend the selection area up to the document margin but unlike MSO
     not beyond to distinguish between page and (desk) background and to
     allow drawing a selection rectangle as known from Draw
   => go for it

* UI presenter console - Feature request: Countdown timer
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=102839
   + see also https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=99750
   + mockup attached to tdf#102839; tdf#99750 rather a WF (Heiko)
   + integrate slideshow presenter on/off in the slideshow options tdf#135089
   + show on presentation too?
     + wouldn't do if the console is active (Patrick)
     + running into trouble with either too small info or hiding content
       + not a big deal if shown for just a few second (Sascha)
     + maybe a progressbar of total time going down with time (Krunoslav)
       + would be a cool extension but should be user-configurable
   + Timeboxing selection options (like 5min or 10 min)
      + Times should be customizable (for a 1 hour presentation a user might have
        different needs) (Patrick)
   + Implement it as "Reminder after:"
   + Timer/reminder per slide (tdf#99750)
     + uncommon use-case, better implement as extension
   => AI: update mockups, continue discussion on tickets
