    * Toolbar button for Special characters
    + New floating widget with quick access to recent/favorites (Heiko)
    or small button only that just opens the dialog (Jay)
    + don't mind (Consgor, Stuart)
    + Notebookbars provide the new widget (Jay)
    => old standard toolbar will be used
    * Labels at the right pane on the customization dialog
    or just have a tooltip
    + add labels (Andreas)
    + get rid of all labels in favor of tooltips (Jay)
    + tooltips are not shown at screenshots making it hard to illustrate in the help (Csongor)
    + labels above controls (Csongor, Stuart)
    => place text above controls using Search, Category, Function, and Description on the left
    and Scope, Target, Function, Customize right
    + use "Target" or make it dependent on tab -> Target is easier for l10n
    + change +/- to add/delete or any other text?
    => tooltips are the better way to explain the function
    * Standard palette rework
    + original request was to swap the names purple and violet
    + introduction of the new palette would require to redo new gradients and table styles
    in order to get proper standard colors

    => go with an update of the palette
    => feedback required, please play with the generator (Stuart)
