Hi, another issue that makes me think a small change will make a big difference in using your software - make dialog box choices consistent. This particular issue is related to ensuring OK and Cancel buttons are in the same positions in confirmation dialog boxes.

An example here - there are a few more but you get the picture. Here is me saving my output (as a JPEG, but the symptoms exist for the more popular scenario of saving as a TIF or FITS):





The user (me) ends up clicking OK, OK, Cancel.

I should also add - the preferred way would be OK first, then Cancel because the assumption should be that the user is moving forward in the user journey.

And keep case consistent too... "OK" and "Cancel", not "Ok" and "cancel".
