Minutes from the UX/design meeting 2020-Oct-28

Present: Ruyaince, Heiko
Comments: Cor, Jay, Regina, m.a.riosv


* Add option that undoing input doesn't jump view to the undo target cell
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=99794
   + WF (undo requires feedback) but maybe add a command to go back (Heiko)
   + freeze is a nice solution to keep a cell in sight (Cor)
   => WF

* The place to set the language for the document is ridiculously undiscoverable
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=96988
   => NAB (Cor, Heiko)

* UI: Cannot open Fontwork dialog to adapt text to connect shape
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=94535
   + add 1) To the Format menu and 2) As a hidden button in the drawing
     toolbar (Jay)
   + "text along path" is a property of the shape, not of the text;
      Renaming would be good (Regina)
   => do it

* Default data type of the Paste function needs to be configurable
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=62672
   + having one default being always the same makes a lot of sense (Ruya)
   + alternative could be a radio button list where the user can change
     the default within the paste special dialog (Heiko)
     + however a lot of effort for not much benefit
   + use a macro (m.a.riosv)
   => WF

* Make clear distinction on differences between "Export" and "Save As", and
   move items in those filters accordingly
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=116703
   + everyday actions into save/as, seldom used formats into export (Ruya)
   + GIMP is an example how bad the distinction between save/as and
     export is (Heiko)
   => AI: will look into it and comment later

* [META] Usability metrics (usage stats) bugs and enhancements
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=115712
   + user metrics would be great
   + storing user data is a sensible topic due to GDPR
   + we could use nightly builds and RC's for user metrics (Ruya)
   + saving UNO commands in a summative way is the first step but the sequences
     of individual commands provides much more info (eg. what command is
     followed by undo)
   + receiving a large set of data is challenging for the storage
   => to be continued; let's search the internet for potential solutions
