Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2015-02-27 01:22:16 UTC
Maybe its just me, but when i open the the file dialog in libreoffice, the first thing i do is set the file type, so it would be useful for it to have a more prominent position by it being above version or even better above filename. It is positioned above version in the OS dialogs on windows and linux.
Comment 1 Adolfo Jayme 2015-02-27 02:23:01 UTC
I don’t think it should be above the “File name” field, however, moving it over “Version” is reasonable. Taking.
