+ lots of great discussions how to finalize the sidebar's look (all)
+ looks beautiful :-)
+ comment button (Jay)
+ for standard comments - track changes comments are in the ODF focuments only (Jay)
+ does it affect the sidebar design?
+ icons for changes (Jay / Heiko)
+ concerned about using icons (Jay)
+ would a tooltip be a solution? (Kendy)
+ many actions - insert / delete / ... (Jay)
+ hopefully could be simple enough (Jay)
+ but a tooltip would be really good (Jay)
+ not necessary to set the icons in stone - possible to change to text if
the icons do not work (Kendy)
* Last week's discussions that need a resolution:
+ Residual issues with BZ migration? Heiko not receiving digest subscription of ux-advise
issues, while those taking all UX-advise seeing issues. (Stuart)
+ bugzilla was not sending the mails; fixed now (Stuart)
-> is fixed (Heiko)
* UX advise bugs in bugzilla (Stuart)
+ recurring topic to be used for UX advise bugs that need action
+ keeps piling up, unfortunately (Stuart)
+ everyone should feel empowered to look at that + act (Stuart)
+ but don't want to be a "gatekeeper" :-) (Stuart)
+ for the moment, Stuart will pick 5 for each meeting - the most burning ones (Kendy)
+ and let's see how it develops (Kendy)
* Approach to drawing toolbar / sidebar - how to handle the shapes & their color etc.
+ Disable object, image, and character toolbars in Impress (Jay, Cor)
To simply the interface by having just one toolbar above and below
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=87676 + we would lose the possibility to change the
style first, and then draw (Kendy)
+ it is different to how it works in Writer - there you have
no other option than to draw first, and then tweak the
+ current way is similar to eg. Inkscape (Mattias)
+ if we used the sidebar more, it would allow more space for the
+ but interaction should be improved there, indeed (Mattias)
+ what about to restructure this a bit more? (Kendy)
+ proposed a sidebar for colors etc. together with shapes to draw (Jay)

+ The "New Styles from Selection" in the Sidebar Styles and Formatting content panel allows efficient creation
of new styles from objects that have been directly formatting.
--> Needs to be more prominent (e.g. context menu) (Heiko)
+ Streamline the UI, have a single place for settings. (Jay)
Hide Object (Line and filing), Image and Character toolbars -- giving a more consistenet UI, too many choices now.
Use the standard toolbar for a few things, the drawing toolbar for a few--and hide the Line and Filing toolbar.
would be better to have all direct formatting now available in the sidebar.
Object creation would be from Standard toolbar or a revamped Drawing toolbar.
+ Alignment, arrangement, distribution, etc. - already on the context menu, so no loss. (Jay)
+ Possibly put alignment, arrangement, etc. into the Drawings toolbar (Jay)
+ Multiple selected objects receive arangement, alignment
(access via context menu only: Jay, access context menu plus toolbar: Heiko)
+ when we have the same behavior for all, fine with the change (Cor)
+ conclusion: go ahead with the change, and let's try how it behaves
+ should be down to changing eg. officecfg/registry/data/org/openoffice/Office/UI/ImpressWindowState.xcu
with Visible true to false
