    Present: Eric, Jay, Tomaz, Heiko
    * Participation in the design meeting declined
    + Bubli: criticizing the missing technical background of proposals
    + Samuel: lunch time around 13, preference is 9-11 or 14-16
    + Tomaz/Eric: it's okay but vacation time during summer
    + Eric: maybe better advertise the meeting to the community
    + Stuart: would attend at 3pm
    => starting at 3pm beginning next week
    * Switch default to 16:9 in Impress/Draw
    + good idea (Heiko), bad idea (Jay)
    + introduce a user setting or remember the last setting (Heiko)
    + perhaps make it dependent on the actual screen dimension (Eric)
    + run a quick poll (Eric)
    + Aug-02, ~4pm CEST+1: 37/95 (28%/72%)
    => so let's do it
    * Missing 16:9 templates
    + some avail from the last competition just need to get included (Jay)
    + task is to finalize the voting, clean-up the templates, and submit all eventually
    => AI: Please have a look at the GSheet and up/down vote the templates
    + once the voting is done Jay will do the grunt work
    * Terminology for Spelling and Grammar
    => go for 'Spelling' only
    * Introduce a 'histogram' function in Calc
    + calculate the bins automatically (based on user input of how many)
    + followed by frequency() and creation of the histogram
    + run as a wizard (Data > Statistics)
    + no mockup needed as the wizard have a generic ui (Tomaz)
    + formula is to find n bins equidistantly between min and max
    => no further UX input required
    * Indicator for overridden properties in inherited styles + means to reset
    + duplicates, good mockup for resetting properties in tdf#89826
    + indication of inherited properties needed (Jay)
    + maybe a section similar to 'contains' does the trick (Jay)
    => lets check how others do it
    * Disable Autocomplete depending on paragraph style
    + reasonable request but complicates the UI
    + auto complete can be disabled easily; shortcut is customizable
    => WF because too complicate for average user and out of scope
