+ always voting for the new button (Heiko, Thomas)
+ a few more pixels horizontally shouldn't be a big issue; and it's the same for Insert Table (Tomaz)
+ same name might be a problem for the users (Tomaz)
+ no change needed just switch (Heiko)
=> lets switch, AI: Heiko

* Revert "Menubar: move InsertDoc in ObjectMenu Subsection like in calc" (Michael S)
+ https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/56584/
+ see comments
+ consistency is a good thing, so it boils down how users understand "inline" vs. "native" embedding
and they likely dont see the difference (Heiko)
+ agree with the difference of inserted reference (text doc in Writer) vs ("natively") inserteted objects (Charts in Calc) (Tomaz)
+ actually the patch has been reverted in antoher patch https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/57215
=> Andreas: please revert using the respective Gerrit function!

* Labels for "Cell value is" at "Conditional Formatting"
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=117647
+ Similarity to Excel paramount?
+ change to "n elements" is simple and improves the UI; workflow is in details anyway, see #c8 (Heiko)
+ agree with Kompilainnen and Bubli (Tomaz, Thomas)
=> let's change the label as recommended

* Reconsider paragraph break handling (Timur)
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=68271
+ Make it configurable?
+ Keep the default because there are many pitfalls around (Heiko)
+ But an option defaulting to the current behavior is an idea (Tomaz)
=> lets reopen and follow Timur's advice

* Tab stops in Writer
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=108273
+ show a "inverted" symbol in the ruler for right aligned text
+ wonder how it works with RTL (Heiko)
+ looks like a bug (Tomaz)
=> accept the ticket and follow the recommendation
