    Present: Adolfo, Csogor, Thomas, Heiko, Jay, Stuart
    * Set page orientation automatically depending on user settings
    + WFM (Heiko, Adolfo)
    + Possible flickers (Adolfo)
    + Go with the proposal (Jay, Csogor)
    + delete radio buttons and have a button to toggle as Csogor proposed, same in sidebar (Thomas)
    + make sure to be compatible with ODF (Stuart)
    + issue in sidebar with user defined values (Tomaz),
    should be fixed with the change (Stuart)
    => Go with a patch
    * Set background image (to all slides)
    + drop the dialog, e.g. never apply to all pages (Jay)
    + supposed workflow to place an image on all slides is per master slides
    + introduce a checkbox "add to all slide" in insert image dialog (Adolfo, Thomas, Jay)
    => 100% agreement
    * Adjust zoom level depending on sidebar on/off
    + open to all solutions, even WF is okay (Jay)
    + go with 'fit to width' (Cor) - involves user action (Adolfo)
    + consider toolbars vertically, navigator horizontally tech. challenging (Stuart)
    + zoom is also an a11y feature for visually impaired people, so better no automatic change (Thomas)
    => agreement on WONTFIX
    * SVG application icons clean-up
    + not much benefit (Heiko)
    + may improve on performance (Adolfo)
    => add 24, 64, 96px

    * Same labels in Draw/Impress
    + ticket not actionable but relevant
    + many issues have been fixed (Jay)
    => WFM (and file new tickets where needed diff between draw & impress)
    * Text is not shown behind frame set to 'Wrap Through' and with fill set to None
    + setting a color and transparency none for frames (Heiko)
    + text frames have a different use case and take the color of the background (Jay)
    + Shapes and frames are different type of objects (Stuart)
    + Frames should be 100% transparent with None color by default (Regina)
    + Frames should have no color and no transparancy by default, same as text frames -> results in transparent background (Thomas)
    + will break older docs and the new behaviour needs carefully documentation (Adolfo, Jay)
    => change behavior of Frames to show transparent by default with None fill, likely not an easyhack
