General

* LibreOffice Open Source aspects
+ published: https://design.blog.documentfoundation.org/2017/09/13/open-source-means-libreoffice-users/

+ Doodle for design session --> https://beta.doodle.com/poll/dc8aphpdzwq7f2zu
+ please at least enter your name if no time is good for you

* Guideline for dropdown selection
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=112175
+ see also https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=112324
+ Proposed HIG draft:
+ When the combobox/dropdown is on the main form, changes should not become effective until the user
leaves the control, or collapses the open widget.
+ On secondary dialogs changes are applied immediately, e.g. when another list entry is selected by
mouse wheel or arrow keys.
+ reasons: performance, don't care but MS doesn't function that way, safety as changes may not be intended
+ better always update immediately on any change (Heiko)
+ live preview is available in secondary dialogs (Jay)
=> keep the status quo and write HIG; but deveval first

Tickets

+ Rulers for margins instead of padding
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=111779
+ current way is useful (Stuart, Jay)
=> design additional ruler "modes", responding to object content (e.g. padding)
provide configuration (component View or Expert config) to toggle ruler behavior
