Subject: [libreoffice-design] Re: Agenda for the design/UX meeting 2017-Dec-13
From: Heiko Tietze <>
Date: Wed, 13 Dec 2017 21:11:52 +0100
To: LibO Design <>

Present: (Csongor), Jay, Thomas, Heiko

* Show the Preview in dialogs left or right of the content
+ +1 for the request as we started this at other dialogs (Heiko)
+ shrink from left instead of right (Csongor)
=> full agreement to move the preview to the right as on most other dialogs

* Removal of x to close the sidebar deck
+ requires to change the HIG
=> full agreement to keep the current state because of consistency, it's
described in the HIG, and there is no alternative function to keep the
tabbar open

* Hard English string & UI freezeWeek 51 , Dec 18, 2017 - Dec 24, 2017
+ bullet list style names => AI Jay
+ Input from Stuart & Adolfo needed on
+ Customization
=> will handle it (Jay)

+ New gradients
+ proposals attached to the ticket
+ would be nice to have more input from community and do the full cleanup during 6.1 cycle (Jay)
=> no objection to go ahead

* Ultra-contextual toolbar
+ introduce as a new toolbar variant, or notebookbar, or extension
+ would hate it (Csongor)
+ do not include as classic toolbar neither as notebookbar
=> extension? sounds good

* Improve internal file picker or just accept this as a workaround
+ Improvement idea:
+ Meta ticket:
+ 20 issues and requests
+ flag as obsolete with 6.0 and remove with 6.2 when Qt5 is done (Heiko)
+ some webprotocols are not-that-well-supported in native dialogs (cloph)
+ adds consistency over OS'es (Thomas)
+ Maxim's comment on the dialog -
(kde4 and VCL gen)
+ if functionality can be replaced we should do that
=> to the ESC with the proposal
