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
