Move above checkboxes in Autofilter window (see attach).
IMHO it will be better for general UX
Steps to Reproduce:
1. I suggest to move above checkboxes in Autofilter window (see attach)
User Profile Reset: No

The typical place for parent checkboxes is above the children; this pattern is known from trees (ie. file manager).
Somehow related is bug 118574 where I added a mockup with the checkboxes below to keep the search bar close to the list that is affected by the search. But the idea here is good anyway. So yes, please do it.
A code pointer: see ScCheckListMenuWindow::packWindow and ScCheckListMenuWindow::getSectionPosSize in sc/source/ui/cctrl/checklistmenu.cxx
