Description of problem:
In order to reach the file type selector from the "save as" menu, you first
need to open the "Browse for other folders" dropdown. This is unintuitive
and confusing - it took me a few minutes to find since I didn't think that
options completely unrelated to "other folders" would be in that menu...
The "save as" menu has the file type selector directly available.
(adding Seth to the CC list since this could use a UI designer opinion)
Yeah it sucks. I've a patch pending to make the OOo save/load dialogs more like
the gimp-2.2 save/load dialog with a seperation of browse on suffix vs an
additional list of actual file types to load/save as.
