To: LibO Design <>
Present: Jay, Eric, Tomaz, Stuart, Heiko

* LibO mascot
+ Competition finishing today
* So far 270 valid contributions
+ First voting phase coming up

* Use direct formatting and character style in ToC
+ Limitation unclear, e.g. font size?
+ Scope unclear, alphabetical index, figures, tables...
+ implementation issues to pick single properties and not use font size, for example (Stuart, Jay)
+ Take all properties (Heiko)
+ running into trouble with direct formattings (Stuart)
+ font size can be relative; ToC should stay plain (Eric)
+ optionally, all properties excluding font size (Jay)
+ likely not possible to modify the ToC (clear direct formatting) (Jay)
+ compatibility with Windows not paramount here (Stuart)
=> keep ticket open

* Menu organization: move Compare and Merge Documents into Edit
+ Track changes is different to document operations (Eric, Heiko)
+ Both are related (Jay, Stuart)
+ Not enough space in edit menu (Jay)
+ Benjamin's wouldn't look for this function so root of menu is not needed (Stuart)
=> WF

* New Tango icons
+ glossy or not
=> no glossyness (Jay)
=> Andreas: please make the icons plain

* Default spacing at columns
+ depending on font between 3-5mm - so 0.04cm (Regina)
+ Word uses 0.5in/1.27cm, Calligra: 0.6cm, WPS: 0.75cm or two characters
=> agreed on 0.6cm
