Minutes from the UX/design meeting 2020-May-07

Present: Heiko
Comments: Cor, Roman


* Provide context menu inside the area (rows, columns) where an Outline is set, with outline functions
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=76986
   + don't see any contextual functions that are needed there (Heiko)
     + Show/Hide Details (Cor)
     + but the bar can have multiple groups; still not convinced
   + tooltips make sense ("Grouping of B$:D$"\nClick to show/hide)
   + random values are recalculated on row/col hide (bug 132809)
   => change into tooltip request (or resolve as WFM)

* UX: Ignore all option in spell check is an unexpected full session setting
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=132505
   + store ignored words at spellchecking in the document not the session?
   + ignore once/all as well as correct once/all should work at the current document,
     a further option should allow to add this word to a dictionary
   + changing the text language is pointless as the dialog does not offer any restart
   + also, options... are misplaced in this dialog
   + modifications to the text itself (paste) are questionable
   + the dialog shouldn't be amodal
   + the dialog should use system settings (currently dark font on dark background)
   + undo better done after close (every change stored separately)
   => add mockup to ticket

* Change Arabic diacritics' colours separate from base font colour?
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=129330
   + Apply character style per autotext or use direct formatting with hard-coded rules
   + find/replace approach should work like in indesign (see youtube video in c4)
   => no objection, comment on ticket

* FORMATTING: Clone Formatting should allow typing when in multiple selection mode
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=128719
   => no objection so go for it

* Provide a live preview of changes when creating or editing a pivot table
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=131654
   + mockup in c2 needs improvement for options and consideration of corner cases
   => no objection
