Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 79093
Ok/Cancel, Yes/No buttons are in wrong order
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:48:52 EDT
New to Redhat 8.0, the Yes/No and Ok/Cancel buttons have been swapped compared
to the order in earlier versions.
I think this is wrong, and should be made a preference, or something.
My wife, who is not a computer person, requested that this bug be filed, because
she hates the new order of the buttons.
Please explain why this was done, and provide information on how to change it.
(a url or quick answer is file)
The GTK+ button ordering conforms to the GNOME humanb user interface guidelines.
For details how on how this works. In general, OK/Cancel and Yes/No
pairs should almost never occur, instead it should be
[ Cancel ] [ Save ]
Or whatever the particular
If you find OK/Cancel or Yes/No in the Red Hat tools, it wouldn't hurt
to file a bug about it.
There are some cases in which it would be nice if the GTK+ standard
dialogs would conform to a different UI standard instead; especially
when running in a Windows-like environment, or under Windows itself.
(GTK+ is a cross-platform toolkit.) See:
for ideas about making this a configurable item.
