Tickets/Topic

* Writer does not allow a user-set default view/zoom
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=132274
+ option to override document zoom level
=> do it

* Inserted file not displayed correctly (Numbering missing)
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=132289
+ list style must not be ignored when pasting/inserting styled text
+ paste "1. Lorem" into a paragraph like "That didnt bode well" makes
the paragraph a list, ie. "1. That didnt bode Lorem\n 2. well."
-> makes no sense
+ so just follow the recent decision and keep the source style when pasting
at an empty paragraph, otherwise keep target's style
+ usually operation is done on an empty paragraph (Cor)
=> comment and fix the bug

* Opentype features window is longer than screen size and it is difficult to reach
ok/cancel buttons
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=128176
+ three columns or scrollwindow
+ prefer scrollwindow (Cor, Olivier)
=> do it

* Extend the marker line if tracked changes spans over the next paragraph
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=104346
+ no objection, enhancement not a bug, low priority
+ line is interrupted by paragraph spacing
=> do it

* Add ability to keep vector image and compress replacement image in image
compression dialog
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=127854
+ reason for https://vmiklos.hu/blog/lo-insert-pdf-image.html
+ "Similarly to the SVG feature, the original vector image is stored in the
document, but when saving to ODF, a replacement PNG file is also generated to be
backwards compatible with older ODF readers."
+ reading Miklos blog from comment #9, it looks as if
+ inserted PDF is represented with PNG,
but choosing Save from Context menu allows to save as PDF again...
+ so would it be possible to do the same with inserted SVGs ?
+ could ask Miklos I think (Cor)
+ introduce a compatibility flag to switch conversion to raster graphic off?
+ any workflow with back and forth conversion of PNG<->SVG sounds weird (Heiko)
=> involve Miklos

* Definition List (or Definition Index or Glossary) at the end of the page - EDITING
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=118455
+ would be nice to have it more comfortable though but quite a lot of effort
and unclear if possible with the ODF
+ less comfortable options are using endnotes or 1st key of index entry
+ would be definitely a nice feature (Cor, Olivier)
+ would ODF specs have the room for this to be implemented?
+ ask Regina :) (Cor)
+ if we realize it it has to be done based on the current ODF specs (Heiko)
=> look at the competitor's way and take compatibility as prime
+ or ask for a good design from someone if we know ODF allows it to be implemented

* Adopt new application icons for LibreOffice 7.0
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=132398
+ seeking for opinions, see c8 (Heiko)
+ wouldn't change the app icons (Olivier)
+ let's gather the ideas first (Cor)
=> comments and input is always welcome
