Description Hanif Bin Ariffin 2018-11-09 15:38:16 UTC
I use both Windows 10 and Ubuntu 18.10. While converting a bunch of .PPT and .DOC files I noticed that the buttons are swapped in the 2 OS tested.
It gets very annoying that the order of the buttons are in different order.

In Ubuntu18.10 "convert to ODP format" comes first. But in W10, it comes second.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Take any .PPT files
2. Try to save them
3. Libre will prompt to save them as .ODP format
4. Notice the selections are in different order in W10 and Ubuntu18.10

Actual Results:
They are in different order

Expected Results:
The order should be the same across all OSes.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

I think this is the expected behaviour but I'm not completely sure...
Adding UX team to the loop... Caolán may know the reason as well...

"Use ODF Format" is a "cancel" button
"Use Word 97-2003 Format" is a "save" button

as per windows guidelines (also used for kde) the ordering there is 
"save, cancel" so "use..." appears on the right.

gnome guidelines are "cancel, save" so under that "use word..." appears on the right
