* Improving the Use of Styles in Writer (Jay)
    + many have contributed already, add your thoughts too (Jay)
    + main idea: encourage more people to use styles (Jay)
    + currently too hard to use, make it easier (Jay)
    + lots of missing visual clues missing for the paragraph vs. character style, and then
      it looks like Clear Direct Formatting does not work, etc. (Jay)
    + needs to be improved so that the styles are more used by more people (Jay)
    + everybody welcome to contribute! (Jay)
* Formula bar function wizard button should open the functions pane of sidebar (Jay)
        + a lot of "naysayers"
    + the sidebar could have a button to open the Function Wizard too - for those who need that (Jay)
    + the features in the wizard and the list differ (Heiko)
    + preview seems useful (Heiko)
    + the wizard allows better use of mouse (Mattias)
    + not that good descriptions in the sidebar (Mattias)
