Tickets

* There is no way to suppress Writer inserting blank pages to make page No. 1 a right-hand page when editing a document
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=117231
+ show confirmation box (Dieter, Cor)
+ suppress odd/even values depending on page style (Heiko)
+ potentially solved with tdf#125682 (MikeK)
=> postponed and resolve if solved

* Cloning a cell's format should also clone the format of the cell's comment
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=130512
+ consistency with MSO or user expectation
+ "Format Painter" at MSO does not copy the comment's style as LibreOffice Calc
+ with complex comments lke "Test <b>Foo</b>" copied to a simple "Bar" is unclear
+ take the first characters maybe (Cor)
+ multiple formatting like <red>aaa</red><blue>bbb</blue> is not copied at all (Patrick)
+ but it works on Excel and takes the first character's format
=> do it

* Add alignment controls to the sidebar
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=130156
+ we have a nice alignment widget in the toolbar
+ no objection to the idea
=> do it

* UI Create a better UX for "Tracking Changes" mode
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=130840
+ +1 for a status icon, rest is unclear
+ please comment if my communication is not polite, see c4
+ in fact not easy to understand (Patrick, Cor)
+ Change in this direction: (Cor)
+ Apparently some things do not work. Developer time/effort... (Cor)
+ So it is useful to e.g. track adding a sheet. And OK, it cannot be removed.. so that should be explained.
+ So I changed the summary of this report. OK?
+ ideally look into the issue and make it actionable (Cor)
=> keep it for later

* Double click page style, causes pages above "current page" to be changed
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=101853
+ confirmation box is a good idea (Cor)
+ perhaps with "Don't show again" for the experts (Heiko)
+ context menu with an option "Apply to full document"
+ a page style is applied to the part of the document between hard breaks that define a page style
+ to apply it to only a 'selection' (one/more pages) needs that hard breaks etc are inserted automatically
=> do both confirmation box (with option to not show again) and context menu

* Branding for 7.0
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=130778
+ will be on this list until it's solved
=> write a message on the mailing list
