W hat we’re up to (Szymon)

    • found a few different issues with what was missing.
    • Move comments to left & fixed bundles & normal comments when doing editing for input fields.
    • Fixed user-button-list & hamburger menu showing in notebookbar
  • Now focusing on tunneled dialogs again.
    • Two main things left: position of cursor if user is typing, a few widgets are RTL when layout is LTR.
  • Dennis’ core calc work is merged too
    • needs some follow-on polishing.
    • Canvas for calc issue:
      • great with LTR UI, but changing language of user to RTL – clicking on cells can have issues with different cell sizes.
        • Good to file it (Michael)
          • and some hinits on testing here

    • nothing else as big as RTL.
