Minutes from the UX/design meeting 2020-Oct-08

Present: Sascha, Rizal, Heiko
Comments: Stuart


* Show information when a range has been defined (applies to Sort, Filter...)
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=132521
   + range is highlighted right now; issue not easy to reproduce (Sascha)
   + feedback doesn't hurt, however (Heiko)
   => if sorting happens in a range, it shall be shown in the sort dialog
     maybe just "Sorting will happen in the active range only"

* Sidebar property deck string is to generic
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=137078
   + No good alternative, no urgent need to change (Heiko)
   + Styles - no, Attributes - no benefit, Miscellaneous - misleading
     Document properties - duplicates existing information
   => WF

* Add "Color Replacer" to Writer (currently it only exists in Draw/Impress)
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=137214
   + this function is a perfect example for an extension (Sascha, Heiko)
   + making it accessible via customization is not detrimental to usability (Heiko)
   => accepted, perhaps easyhack

* How should the a word be formatted when using autocorrection (if multiple
   formattings are applied)
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135909
   + keep current implementation, WF
   + picking the first letter for the format, as today, is expectable (Sascha)
   + any other character or keeping the complex formatting would be intrasparent
     with too many exceptions (and hard to implement)
   + the use case is way too much far-fetched (Sascha)
   => WF, rather INVALID

* ENHANCEMENT: Add a lock to caption frame; so frame being image (as prevention
   for unintended changes within the frame)
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135884
   + frame style > frame/graphics has Protect: Position, Size;
     enable by default?
   + side note: the modified frame style is not applied correctly => bug
   + unclear use case (Sascha)
     + to avoid accidental moving images?
   + changing the default makes it hard for Benjamin-users to move images
   + typical use case is to insert graphic, position correctly and then
     block it, done by switching on the protection (eg per dedicated frame style)
   => WF
