* Writer > Table > Insert Row/Col: The mouse cursor should move to the newly added row
+ WONTFIX (Heiko) (the use case is far-fetched)
+ yes (but unclear why) (Stuart)
+ many uncertainties and inconsistencies with implementation (Thomas)
= WF

* Change multiple spaces to   upon HTML export
+ NOTOURBUG, HTML clearly separates content and style (Heiko)
+ variable tab width; could be defined width CSS
+ voting for full support (Thomas)
=> discuss with ESC suggesting NOB

* Find should search in the full document
+ Find <Foo> in paragraph <BAR> when starting the search/navigate from a comment
+ Works: Frames, Sections, Tables, Footnote/Endnote, Header/Footer
+ In scope: Comments, Text box (works in one directions)
+ Out of scope: Shapes/Images when in text edit mode, Forms
+ Should work for all objects in "normal edit mode" (Thomas)
+ Scope depended search should be clear to the user (Cor)
=> go if effort is limited (function wont break any workflow)

* Use character style for auto-format like *bold*
+ unclear use case and benefit (Heiko)
+ AutoCorrect options for markup strikeout and italic are added commit (Tiago Santos)
=> postponed

* Dialog layout
+ Add a label "Navigation" before prev/next?
+ No label, but better left alignment plus size of nav btns (Cor)
