    * 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)
