Tickets/Topic

* Insert image location points to AppData\Roaming\LibreOfficeDev\4\user\gallery
with a fresh profile
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135474 => bug 132734
+ duplicate of tdf#132734 (Rizal)
+ good idea; query the default image directory (Aron)
+ see also bug 129292 and bug 43021 -> Options "last used directory" (Seth)
+ no objection (Sascha, Heiko)
=> do it

* Bad layout for extra options in save dialog
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135554
+ options without wrap, indented to the controls above, no columns (Heiko)
+ place "Save with password" and "Encrypt with GPG key" in a second column
(Sascha)
+ auto extension not working (Sascha), IIRC we talked about this (Heiko)
+ edit filter settings applies only for text with encoding; according help it
sets information in file header; place this option in the extra dialog that
always pops-up (Sascha); remove the option (Heiko)
=> improve it

* UI: Settings for 'Printer" or 'Print to file" should be drop down box
(or something else) instead of radio button
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135410
+ get rid of different defaults (Heiko)
+ dropdown or tabs is a bit better than radio buttons
+ wonder is this is related to Export to PDF; never used that (John, Sascha)
=> comment on the ticket

* Allow more font and position formatting for watermarks
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=115737
+ Position, Relative size, Absolute font size
+ keep it simple, no enhancement needed (Heiko)
+ agree with position, at least (Sascha)
+ some/all features are available in Onlyoffice and WPS (Rizal)
=> do it

* scrolling vertical tab bar instead of horizontal multi-tab dialogs
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=113418
+ dialogs with vertical "tabs" wouldn't be according the OS/DE anymore
but make the application likely more appealing than (stacked) tabs
+ sidebar with large image and text might be a good solution for option
dialogs but not in case of properties; good icons are very challenging
and doubt it's helpful (Sascha)
+ would appreciate the sidebar with icon solution instead of tabs (Rizal)
+ never liked the tabs, go with sidebar (John)
+ ideally we have a solution that can be reverted if not accepted (Heiko)
