Description peter josvai 2016-01-17 06:23:57 UTC
I know, this is not exactly a BUG ... still, something works not as I would expect it ... 

When given the RECOVER FILES option (after an uncool shutdown), when you want to recover files, the option "discard recovery date" is in the RIGHT corner... while the "start recovery" is in the left position, left to this button... which is unergonomic... 

NORMALLY -- I might be wrong, though -- the OKAY (the "GREEN", the "GO ON") option should be on the right ..
because that's the easiest to click on... you can click on it "blindly" .... while, for the the other button, you have to look for (even if this takes only a fragment of a second)

switching their position could be GREAT --- but, of course it'd need some community testing and opinion check ...
not to mention that for right to left reading people it could be different...


PS: 
where do we file improvement suggestions?

It is not an OK button but a choice between 2 options.

It is always a very bad idea to click blindly, above all when something went bad and you have to choose how to fix that.

That said it is a valid enhancement request, even if I disagree.
Setting status to NEW. It will set to WontFix if the enhancement request is rejected.

Best regards. JBF

The positive action button should be on the far right when on Linux (GNOME) and OS X, and to the left of the negative action button when running on Linux (KDE) and Windows.
