Until I checked it out just now, I didn't realise that the Save icon
in the Ubuntu version of LO is actually a broad green downward arrow on
of a representation of a Hard drive.  Now, I have had no problems saving
documents, so I imagine that things like the position of the icon (next
the Open File icon) and the tool tip are all part of identifying the
icon.  When I looked at the floppy disk icon on my wife's Win 7
version, I
realise how old fashioned it looks.


That is because you have your icon style set to 'Human'. Ubuntu includes and libreoffice-style-human in their
repositories. If LO provided the same & set the default to 'Human' the
save icon would be the same (disk drive with a down arrow).

Correction: libreoffice-style-humanity

Thanks for the explanation of why Ubuntu is different.

The point I am making is that an old fashioned floppy disk is not the only
used for Save and the world will not come to an end if some other
and more modern, icon is used in its place.  Having said that, a hard drive
be old fashioned in a few years time when SSDs become the norm.
