Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. File->Save As, wanting to save a .odp file as .sxw
Actual Results: Widget for selecting the type of the file is hidden inside the "Select other directory" part of the directory; various other options are visible outside.
Expected Results: Saw that autofilename extension was on (in the area of the dialog that was visible by default), and typed "test.sxw"; a file called "test.sxw.odp" was created.
Current way this dialog works is confusing; suggest that file type ought not to be below "Browse for other directories"
File->Export... appears to have the same problem
I've patches to implement a fpicker like the gimp-2.2 to seperate type and
filtering. (http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=46800) which I'm
working on at the moment
