Bug Description

See image attachment. The 'Yes' button should be a secondary button and on the left.

[secondary: Yes] [primary: No]

Please note that this is slightly different than explained in http://developer.gnome.org/hig-book/3.2/windows-alert.html.en#alerts-confirmation . The interaction shown here is slightly weird, because in this case the left Cancel button is the default action, and displayed on the left. This is less of a problem for us, because we use Y / N instead of Cancel / Ok.

Hello Lisette,

HAving 2 default buttons is definitely a bug and I'm fixing that.

Regarding the order of the buttons, and which one should be the default, after looking at the link you posted, I think we have the correct behavior at the moment, which is:

[ default: No ] [ secondary: Yes ]

I'm basing my conclusion in the fact that the HIG says:

* the "ok" button (for us is "Yes") should be on the right, and not primary (see the image in the HIG).
* the "cancel" button (for us "No") should be on the immediate left of the OK or equivalent button, and is primary.

I'm attaching a screenshot of what we have ATM.

Thanks!
