    Present: Jay, Heiko
    * Participation in the design meeting declined
    + no response to the question last week
    + will ask people directly what we can improve
    * Optionally disable context dependency of toolbars
    + bug already present to enable/disable contextual behaviour of toolbars
    => DUP
    * Change sidebar deck label 'Properties' to 'Formatting'
    + for - Heiko, Adolfo, Stuart
    + against - Jay
    + Alternatives: Attributes, Features, Characteristics
    + To discuss: rename also the context and main menu entries from Properties to the new term
    => awaiting additional opinions/comments
    * Enhance spell checking with 'rarely used' flag/book
    + Tools > Spelling > Options... > User-defined, New allows to add as user dictionaries
    + unknown words can be assigned to any of the predefined dics
    + users can separate rarely used or usecase-wise 'project related' items to different dictionaries
    => WFM
    * Rotation of images with frames (ie. caption)
    + Do not enable the 'relative' option when the object receives a frame?
    + Without releative property the image is cropped if rotated or when the frame is resized
    + Option a) unset relative settings before the operation
    + Option b) let the user decide whether the relative setting is enabled or not in the caption dialog (feedback)
    + none is a good solution
    => WFM
    * GSoC'17 Special Caharcters, Input line missing (Stuart)
    + Loss of functionality reported at the ux-advice ML
    + Strongly against the request to keep the input line for combination of characters (Heiko)
    => Please file a bug report that blocks to bug tdf#109207 to discuss the topic
