    Minutes of the Design Hangout: 2016-Dec-22
    Present: Jay, Heiko, Tomaz, Kendy
     * Notebookbar blog post has been published
       + many comments, mostly positive and open-minded
     * List of new icons for 5.3 (Andreas)
       + there was an email about lower case?
         + Andreas asked about it in the bug report and i replied to him
       + contact Andreas and point to the previously mentioned GDoc (Jay)
       + Have a wiki page?
         + undecided; a lot of work for maybe not much outcome
     * Dialog control tooltips (Heiko)
         + Consistency of every control to have a tooltip (Heiko)
         + Lots of translation work to add tooltips to .ui files (Jay, Heiko)
         + Tooltips already provided by help (Jay)
              ESC: make a proposal --> here it is
         + self-explanation is important (Jay)
         + are there any applications that have tooltips for everything? (Jay)
             + MSO does not have tooltips for controls (Jay)
             + date created for Explorer (Jay)
                + nothing when hover the tree / search field - nothing (Jay)
                + no tooltips in the dialogs either (Jay)
         + always popping up tooltips in the dialogs would be annoying (Jay)
             + in toolbars it's fine, as buttons dont have labels and only icon which isnt always understood (Jay)
         + we can have the status quo: no tooltips in the dialogs (Heiko)
             + want to either have it everywhere, or not at all (Heiko)
             + what blocks us from allowing it, and evaluate when there is
               the first dialog that has tooltips? (Kendy)
         + a11y concern (Heiko)
             + tested that, works fine (Jay)
             + every control has the associated label (Jay)
             + some corner cases: W and H instead of "width" and "height" (Jay)
                 + improved the labels there
         + would like to see a dialog with such tooltips in action first, before we
           take a decision like "everything has to have tooltips" (Kendy)
             + not happy about this, but can live with this (Heiko)
         + guidelines in general:
             + should codify what is a result of how things are progressing, never
               should be used as "it is in the guidelines, now you all have to change
               the implementation"
     * Area tab heavily increases size of dialog
       + Issues with high dpi likely because of fix values (Tomaz)
         + please revert the patch
         + double-check then with various DE
     * Color palettes
       + all changes are in 5.3
       + Blog post draft finished
         + Read over it once again (Jay), publish next week (Heiko)
