    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
