Minutes from the UX/design meeting 2020-Jun-04

Present: Heiko
Comments: Stuart, Xavier, Rizal, Regina


* Undo/redo includes creating of paragraph/character style
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=133040
   + abandoning the undo feature for style _creation_ means also
     to not being able to undo unintentionally _deleted_ styles
     and _applying_ styles to the document is the main workflow
   + actual problem is the unexpected deletion (via undo), which we
     could prevent per confirmation box
   + annoying, however, and definitely in need for [ ] Don't show again
   => recommend to close as WFM

* Create a Dialog that shows up on first boot of Writer/Calc/Impress for
   the user to pick its default UI
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=117463
   + if the issue is just the presentation of different UI variants we could
     create a dialog for this purpose and drop the menu items
   + show info during installation
   + bad usability/marketing and WF (Stuart, Xavier)
   + UI variants have bad discoverability so +1 (Rizal)
   + if we introduce another NB, ideally per extension, it won't show up
     on this welcome dialog; the UI choice is the least important for new
     users; if we need to advertise per image we should consider a tab in
     tools > options > view (and remove the menu option) plus have thumbnails
     with the envisioned extensions (Heiko)
   => WF

* Table Toolbar constant placing is now impossible
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=122030
   + keep user-defined state/position for contextual TBs
   + many similar tickets, eg. tdf#36976 to have an option
   + "workaround": use notebookbar
   => make it a duplicate

* Make "current selection" persistent in F/R dialogue
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=133480
   + see also tdf#132031
   + on/off depends on document status; clicking somewhere must change this
   => WF

* Sound to verify document has been saved
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=133585
   + no clear workflow yet, no urgent need
   => keep it for a few more days, then WF

* Pressing CTRL+W with a single document open closes LibreOffice
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=133542
   + browsers close (FF & Chromium), editors don't (Kate)
   + see also https://wiki.mozilla.org/Ctrl_W_not_close_app
     + about:config -> browser.tabs.closeWindowWithLastTab
   + ctrl+w = uno:CloseWin -> WFM (Regina)
   + actually it goes back to start center, which closes per ctrl+w
   => WFM

Please use the solutions correctly! WFM tells "the problem existed; but
it has changed at some unknown point, and now it works just as asked in
original post". It's the same as "FIXED", just the specific commit
fixing this is unknown. What you propose is WF (won't fix), which is
completely different by meaning. Confusing these sends completely
different (wrong!) message to users.
