Currently, the “Paragraph Style” dialog has six action buttons:
[OK] [Apply] [Cancel] [Help] [Reset] [Standard].
This layout is extremely confusing and unacceptable. Please reorder these buttons more accordingly, based on its actions:
[Help] [Reset] [Standard] [OK] [Cancel] [Apply]
By separating and reordering the buttons, the interface would look more cleaner and logical.
(By the way, what’s the difference between [Reset] and [Standard]? Maybe these two buttons could be merged into one dropdown button.)

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

Dear bug submitter!
Due to the fact, that there are a lot of NEEDINFO bugs with no answer within the last six months, we close all of these bugs.
To keep this message short, more infos are available @ https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/NeedinfoClosure#Statement
Thanks for understanding and hopefully updating your bug, so that everything is prepared for developers to fix your problem.
Sorry, I forgot about this one! The bug's still there.
It is about Writer. Other modules have only 5 buttons in style editing dialog.
It is enhancement request, as I can see.
Given the time this bug was opened, I wonder if it is still valid.
As all other dialogs in LibO also have these buttons on the right side, I wouldn't move [Reset] and [Standard] to the left side in the paragraph style dialog -- or it must be moved in all other style dialogs and other dialogs as well.
Today, HIG is default as it's implemented now .
Instead, the button arrangement should respect OS principles as much as possible.
I also like the idea of Adolfo to put both buttons into a dropdown button as shown in . And both names are not self-explanatory, maybe the wording should be changed. But all this blows up this report.

Screenshot of the new layout
There are different dialogs depending on the regional setting (see sw/source/ui/fmtui/tmpdlg.cxx). Modified all so that we get
[Help] <---> [Reset] [Standard] [ ] [Ok] [Apply] [Cancel]
(Space between Standard and Ok is 12px; Standard is not available in all variants).

For reference what the two items do (different to the attachment mentioned above):
- Reset > resets the values on the active Tab to the state of when the dialog was opened (so a Cancel for Tab, without closing the dialog)
- Standard > sets the values on the active Tab to the factory state
