    Minutes of the Design Hangout: 2016-Nov-04
        + Present: Cor, (Mark,) Tomaz, Stuart, Jay, Heiko, Gökhan
     * Bad time for the hangout (Jay)
       Given that we still do it on Friday what would be the best time for you?
       (Comments with different times and days are welcome.)
     * Comments on the new whiteboard?
       => rename/move to "Tasks", "EasyHacks" or the like (Jay)
       - wiki is still an option but not the preferred anymore
     * Remove from GSoC?
       + Table styles
       + Review of the sidebar & its functionality
       + Integration of the Templates Repository
       => Mentors, please check if tasks can be removed from the gsoc page
     * Inconsistent behavior of clone formatting
       + Issue was communicated per email (not all formatting properties are cloned)
       + Weird toggle on/off function
       - Benjamin would want to clone all direct formatting properties, Eve rather paragraph or character styles (Jay)
       - Split button is a good solution (Cor)
       - All properties should be cloned (Cor)
       => File tickets and discuss on Bugzilla (AI: Heiko)
     * Inserting shapes in Draw shouldnt require multiple clicks (Jay)
       - Double click is the LibO way to do things repeatedly (Stuart, Cor, Heiko)
         - not really accurate across all apps
       - Hard to find out for new users (Jay)
       - Workflow is different and in Writer usually more than one object is added
         where Draw rather is to manipulate what has been added (Stuart)
       - better to teach users about our good solution (single click = single action, double click = sticky) (Heiko)
       => create proposals with pro/cons for the next meeting so a simple decision yay/nay is possible
     * Merge cell in dialog (rediscuss)
       - put the option into format dialog: jay
       - do not: heiko, stuart
       - don't care: cor
       => undecided and half-postponed
     * Open sidebar navigator with F5 (Jay)
       - long-term vision is to have decks that can be detached from the sidebar,
       - intermediate solution to harmonize behavior is to make F5 showing the Navigator in the sidebar (Cor, Jay)
       - have a temporary .uno: command to show the floating navigator
       => thumbs up
     * Dock navigator window by default (Jay, Cor)
      - Reopen and fix (Cor, Jay)
      - Docked or undocked, both needs to be known how to switch
      - Docked panel makes the UI jump as it shrinks down the width,
        floating is more functional (Stuart)
      - Jumping UI is less distracting because it's done on purpose (Cor)
      => thumbs up
