Example: options dialog window

In most of LibreOffice' dialog windows, action button area (Help, Ok, Cancel,...) do not align (left and right) with above content area.

I don't think it's an improvement when we align the left edge of the tree with the left side of the help button. But let's have it open for a while to get more opinions.

Please elaborate in respect to comment 1 (NEW is not set yet).

What’s NEEDINFO about this? The gap is obvious.

FTR, it’s caused by the standard 6-px padding applied to all widgets. It’s bothered me since we migrated to Glade, but haven’t found a way to fix it yet.

I set NEEDINFO to have a reminder for myself mainly. My point in comment 1 was that this change is not required and I wanted to get more opinions. Question is: Do we want to perfectly align the confirmation buttons at the footer dialogs with the content above?

Works for me

The look and feel depends on the system. This is Windows LibO 5.3.1.2 and I don't see the need to fix the alignment. Since there was no further opinion I'll close the ticket as WFM.

In your “works for me” screenshot, there’s an obvious discrepance in the alignment of the borders of the tab page and the buttons below it. Please don’t close this again.

If you think it should be fixed do it. Hope you don't need more input from UX.

Please add keyword 'needsUXEval' and CC 'libreoffice-ux-advise@lists.freedesktop.org' if input from UX is needed.
