Minutes of the Design Hangout: 2016-Feb-23

Present: Thibaut, Heiko, Kendy, Tomaz, Jay

* Sidebar Guidelines
  + no comments so full acceptance
  + AI: Add to HIG now
* Notebookbar procedure
  + What/When do we accept additionally NBs in master?
  + How to accept improvements to existing NBs?
  + Make a plan on what we want to provide as factory settings

  + only one UI design for LibreOffice meaning a default icon theme and toolbar
    for better support, maintainance etc. (Thibaut)
  + doesn't work like this for LibO because of crossplattform requirements (Kendy)
  + so ideally we provide a good number of options, the question is what and how (Heiko)
  + have variants to support migration from other office products as well as LibO legacy UX (Kendy)
  + Notebookbar as extension desperately needed (Heiko)
  + encourage "crazy" ideas to show users what's possible
  + have at max two variants of a type of Notebookbar, e.g. simple and advanced contextual sections (Thibaut)
  + what "types" are accepted will be decided in the UX meeting (Heiko)
  + for existing variants write guidelines that must not be broken by updates (Thibaut)
  -> AI: contextual sections: Heiko, tabbed: Jay, single bar: Jay

   + first patch at https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/34426
