Minutes from the UX/design meeting 2020-Oct-22

Present: Cor, Sascha, Heiko
Comments: Stuart, Thomas, Timur, Andreas, Rizal, Adolfo, Ahmad


* Mode for text marking
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=137494
   + cyclic selection behavior with F8 (Stuart)
   + good idea, last step should be None (Thomas)
   + sounds good (Cor)
   + Extended Selection (F8)
could be removed; or we use alt+F8
   => let's do it

* Move single control in "More Options" to print dialog
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=137506
   + keep Order label but move "more option" into the section (Heiko, Cor)
   + Print in reverse order should come first,
     [x] Collate should stay behind the number of copies (Cor)
   => do it

* Insert "Formula" command in Writer appears twice for different UNO commands
   in Customize Keyboard
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=137481
   + .uno:InsertFormula (math expression) / F2
     + (Insert) plain formula
     + (Show) formula bar
     + (Enter) math equation
     + (Insert) Text formula <<<<
   + .uno:InsertObjectStarMath (Math module) / Insert > Object > Formula
     + (Insert) Math formula
     + (Insert) Mathematic Object
     + (Insert) Formula object <<<<
   => do it

* Duration an delay of the effect attached to an object reset after changing
   the effect
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=137537
   + treat animation attributes as user settings and remember last choice or
     accept resetting to the default
   + object attributes are taken from default values in general (black font,
     straight lines, no shadow) (Heiko)
   + but Impress is special in that regards user have to play with
     properties (Cor)
   + apply to all properties or just the delay and duration? (Heiko)
     + just the delay and duration (Cor)
     + and setting any animation to any other object, is not involved, so
       keeps to get the normal defaults
   + default values should be reviewed (Sascha)
   => do it

* Impress: Add Accent drawing styles
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=137586
   + maybe for "Text" drawing style but not duplicated for A0 and A4
   + Accent is basically a kind of character style, since we don't
     have it in Draw/Impress adding drawing styles for all combinationds
     makes not much sense (Cor)
   + easy to add for users (Heiko)
   + aren't styles stored with the template? should be (Sascha)
   => don't add Accent to the default list of drawing styles

* add option to disable splash screen
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=137581
   + a) drop the splash screen completely
   + b) toggle --nologo switch into --showlogo (and disable the spash by that)
   + c) add an additional (expert) option to do hide splash
   + d) keep as it is
   + -nologo sufficient (Timur)
   + many apps do have splash screens (Andreas)
   + Not worthy work to do. Keep it as is. (Rizal)
   + Removing the splash only gives an impression of a faster start-up, but it
     isn’t really measurable in a reliably reproducible way. Some people only
     want it out because it isn’t “fashionable”. (Adolfo)
   + agree to remove splash screen (Ahmad)
   + usage in companies should be taken into account (Cor)
   + disabling by default (solutions a and b) probably lead to regressions (Cor)
   + we already do have an option, so clearly a NAB/WFM (Cor)
   + what is the splash good for (Sascha)
     + all types of communcation, identifcation/branding
   + splash is hidden very fast and nothing is readable (Sascha)
     + disable; use --nologo by default
   => keep the ticket open, bring it to the ESC

* Calc Find toolbar should have "entire cell" checkbox, same as
   Find/replace dialog
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=133833
   + add this option or keep the quickfind bar simple?
   + no string preference, quite full right now (Cor)
   + would like to see highlight in the quickfind bar and agree to
     rather keep it simple (Sascha)
   => resolve as WF
