Bug Description

1. Launch Brasero.
2. Choose "Disc copy".
3. Insert a CD/DVD.
4. In the "Select a disc to write to" menu, choose "Image File".
5. Choose "Properties".

What happens: In the resulting file selector, the only button down the bottom right of the window is "Close". Now if I click that is it going to use the file I just selected, or revert back to what it was before I click it? I know the answer because I have done it 50 odd times now, but it still annoys me every time. Why not "Open", "Save", "Select" or something like that?

Oh while I am at it, the button to open this window is labeled "Properties". Why not "Browse" or something of that nature?

Here is the window I was talking about. I have put a red border around the buttons.

Thanks for the screenshot. "Open" would be inappropriate. "Choose File" would be a bit better, but not much.

One way of fixing this and the "Properties" problem would be to merge the "New disc" "Properties" dialog into the main dialog. Then get rid of the "Properties" button entirely, instead changing "Create Image" to "Create Image…" and always opening the file picker when you choose it. Then, the button in the file picker could be simply "Burn".

Hi, I have gone through some of the standard CD-DVD Burner Softwares, both commercial and open source types.

I found, in case of 'properties', the term 'Preferences' is the most appropriate and after pressing the 'properties' button (or the 'Preferences' button), there (in the 'Location for Image File' window) can be two options at the bottom right of the window, such as [1] OK and [2] Cancel.

I found these very traditional and can help both type of users who are using BRASERO for the first time and also the regular users .

I am attaching two screenshots of my proposed corrections.

Another additional change, specifically for the 'Properties' button. Change is made with RED.
