Tickets/Topic

* Add individual close button to recent document list
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135062
+ right click on menu items not familiar neither discoverable, WF (Heiko)
+ changing features at place make sense (Patrick)
+ low benefit for high effort however => WF (Patrick)
+ disagree with the request too; no app has such a feature in the menu (Sascha)
=> WF

* Linked templates shouldn't obey "Save URLs relative to file system" option
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=131392
+ absolute or relative, one is always wrong; search in case of missing links
or WF
+ maybe let the user search for the reference (Heiko, Patrick)
+ templates usually remain on the same place; there is Tools > Options >
Load/Save >
General > URLs relative to file system to switch between relative and
absolute path (Sascha)
+ sharing documents with other users requires relative path and templates at
a safe place (Sascha)
+ would be nice to show this setting (or be able to change on the fly)
while saving (Sascha)
+ decide whether relative or not per input of full path?
+ bad solution as barely discoverable (Heiko)
+ very uncommon as path is specified above (Krunoslav)
+ expert option, feedback not urgently needed (Patrick)
=> WFM; maybe a topic for the help

* Make Select text by clicking in Margins MSO compliant
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=113932
+ special line selection feature as known from MSO or keep it (WF)
+ Cursor right instead of IBeam (Thomas)
+ vote for introducing the functionality for lines; should work the
same for tables (cursor changes to pointing rigth and row is
selected on click) (Patrick, Krunoslav, Sascha)
+ extend the selection area up to the document margin but unlike MSO
not beyond to distinguish between page and (desk) background and to
allow drawing a selection rectangle as known from Draw
=> go for it

* UI presenter console - Feature request: Countdown timer
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=102839
+ see also https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=99750
+ mockup attached to tdf#102839; tdf#99750 rather a WF (Heiko)
+ integrate slideshow presenter on/off in the slideshow options tdf#135089
+ show on presentation too?
+ wouldn't do if the console is active (Patrick)
+ running into trouble with either too small info or hiding content
+ not a big deal if shown for just a few second (Sascha)
+ maybe a progressbar of total time going down with time (Krunoslav)
+ would be a cool extension but should be user-configurable
+ Timeboxing selection options (like 5min or 10 min)
+ Times should be customizable (for a 1 hour presentation a user might have
different needs) (Patrick)
+ Implement it as "Reminder after:"
+ Timer/reminder per slide (tdf#99750)
+ uncommon use-case, better implement as extension
=> AI: update mockups, continue discussion on tickets
