Minutes from the UX/design meeting 2020-Nov-19

Present: Heiko
Comments: Stuart, Roman, Cor, Csongor


* Writer/UI: Adding Captions to Images is very Unpractical (Width of Image
   Changes with Width of Frame, Does not use Default Frame Style etc)
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=121378
   + make the frame full-size, or resizing the frame must not change the image,
     or introduce smart solution where the caption is supposed to take
     3x of the image width if <100, 2x if <200, or 1x - or the like
   + use Graphics frame style with Width set to Autosize, rather than
     "Relative to the paragraph with: 100%" and for Frame frame style
     Width to Autosize (Csongor)
   + "Graphic" frame style is not properly applied to images (changing
     afterwards and reapplying works)
   => change the defaults so resizing of the outer frame is possible
      without changing the image

* [rfe] Template Manager: give some kind of visual sign on built-in templates
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=138245
   + grey font (not really suited) or dedicated icon likewise for default
   + basically feedback is always good (Cor)
   => let's use an icon

* Find and Replace dialog default should other options be closed
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=138173
   + expand Options independently from diacritics (Stuart)
   + like to see all (Roman)
   + Bug 111846 -> Bug 98544 (Thomas)
     + make "remember the 'other options' state" smarter
     + collapse initially and keep open if a state diverges
   + alternatively, turn diacritics option around so the checkbox can be off
   => collapse unless Diacritics is off or any other option is on

* Menu items with identical (or very similar) labels but different actions in
   Draw and Impress
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=138203
   + Align + Text/Objects in menus?
   => renaming is welcome

* CALC - User Interface - Enhance "Connecting Cells"
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=137853
   + introduce Merge Columns/Rows?
   => let's add these UNO commands for merge but not split
