Subject: [libreoffice-design] Minutes of the design meeting 2017-Nov-09
From: Heiko Tietze <>
Date: Thu, 9 Nov 2017 21:34:18 +0100
To: LibO Design <>
Present: Thomas, Jay, Stuart, Heiko

* Page Number in menu at root level
+ keep it there or have it just in the submenu
+ should remove from root and only group it with the other fields in the Insert -> Field sub-menu.
Note: it does not have to go into Header/Footer, e.g. numbering index cards, speaker notes (Stuart)
+ page field is not the same as putting the page number into the header/footer as known from other programs
=> remove 2 / keep 2 = we keep it

* Two color conditional formatting
+ typical heatmap is blue/red but brighter than today (Heiko)
+ Excel -
=> use Light Yellow 3 / Light Green 3

* Alternative cell selection
+ mockup -
+ WF because of missing use case; a lot of effort for no good reason (Heiko)
=> WF agreed

* Wording for legacy cursor movement
+ Old "Use legacy cursor movement behavior when selecting",
+ "legacy" isnt useful unless LO previously had this behaviour
+ Option 1 "Excel style selection" (Cor)
+ "style" not suitable word to describe behaviour
+ Option 2 'Excel multiple cell keyboard selection' (Yousuf)(Stuart)
+ Option 3 "Excel compatible selection for multiple cells" (Heiko)
+ Option 4 "Excel-like selection for multiple cells" (Thomas)
+ Option 5: "Convenient selection" (and select by default) (Heiko)
=> take option 2

* Opening CSV files
+ c18 'open always in Calc'
+ default behavior is controlled by document service, behavior is correct.
Very weak justification for any change needed here ==> WF (Stuart)
=> split 2/2 pro/con so WF

Next meeting will be on Wednesday, Nov/15.
