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

Present: Sascha, Heiko
Comments: Regina, Dieter


  * Measurement settings are separate for each module - make it to one
    setting LibreOffice -wide (edit)
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=40656
    + move Tools > Options > (Module) > Measurement Unit to
      Tools > Option > Language (Heiko)
    + keep separate since modules might need special units (Regina)
    + agree with Regina (Sascha), sane default used via locale
    + cannot follow the idea to specify the page size in Draw in pt
      and in Writer in cm, for example (Heiko)
    + would prefer one default and individual settings for each control,
      see bug 72662 (Heiko) (see also bug 44267 and bug 134448)
    => comment with recommendation to make it a duplicate

  * Keyboard accelerator & shortcut assignments -- review divergence
    from MS Word for reasonable common use cases [accessibility]
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=65911
    + we neither have a shortcut for character style (CS)
      nor the paragraph style (PS); MSO has no shortcut defined for PS
    + using D makes no sense neither having no shortcut for PS (Heiko)
    + ctrl+D is occupied by double underline, which is not needed
      shift+ctrl+D Right-To-Left
    + Using it quite often with Alt+P for paragraph style,
      Shift+Alt+P for page style, and Alt+C for character style (Sascha)
    => go for it as easyhack

  * Change default pen color and width for presentation
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135364
    + store the last setting is the way to go (and we do so)
      but do we need to change the default?
    => no need to change the red and normal

  * Mark the page gutter area in the preview in the page layout dialog
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=140581
    + draw the gutter area with hatching like MSO?
      + requires to pimp the preview so document canvas
        and document content are shown as such
    => no objection to adopt the MSO solution

  * Feature request: Collapsible objects in Normal view
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=140569
    + not a good idea in normal mode (Dieter)
    + don't see need for a special handling beyond
      outline content visibility (Heiko)
