2 Roundtable

Matthias will focus is work on the following EA relevant tasks:

  • Handling of context menus
  • Region Handling in Calc
  • Open Document behaviour
  • New Chart for OO.o 2.0
  • Menu restructuring
    • Format menu will provide no context sensitivity anymore
    • The Table context of the Format menu will be specified by Falko
    • The Help menu will change
    • The View menu will change
    • The recently used files list shall move from the bottom of the File menu into a sub menu - located near by the Open entries. Four out of six meeting participant voted to move the recently used files list into the sub menu.

Christian J. is working on the Mail Merge specification and will focus on the toolbar content and Impress UI next

Christian L. stated that the 'Reload Document' icon looks misleading. He'll write a task to Stella.

Document Thumbnails
The document thumbnails (tiny document previews) shall provide no drop shadow, because this could look funny when the
thumbnails are used in the Task Panel or Slide Sorter of Impress.

AI for Matthias: Talk to Tino regarding the drop shadow issue.
