How to make the controls consistent

In CALC, create a data range.
Now activate the "Data > Filter > Autofilter" menu.
Now use the drop-down filter GUI on any column.

At the bottom of this GUI, there are three options: 
All, select current item, hide current item. 

But they are not represented uniformly: While The "All" option is text-based, the other two options are presented with icons.

This can be made consistent by converting the "All" option to icon, as the attached file shows.

The "All" checkbox nicely shows the selection, ie. all/none/partially by the checked/unchecked/indetermined state (consider a long list). 
What bothers me more are the two filter buttons that can't be understood without the tooltip. And if "All" becomes also just a button things get worse. Labels could help but the widget is not large enough. 

So putting all together I would prefer to keep it.
