2 Round table

2.1 Procedure for missing HC Icons

2.2 Next Meeting

The next meeting will take place in 14 days, due to the bank holidays in germany

2.3 Color for Document Boundaries

The current color for document boundaries is sub-optimal. It does not allow to see the mouse cursor, if positioned over it (refers to text documents: here the cursor is the same as over the real document, not the usual pointer).

We can't simply change this, as it is a system setting. And we can't do it like a major competitor: There product avoids their own specification, and does _not_ use the system setting, but an own one instead.

The attendees agreed that it would be feasible to simply change the cursor. As the current shape suggests that the user can type in the boundaries area, which is not the case, this would make sense, anyway. CJ is to write a task for this.
