Description

The following is a UI consistency / clarification issue.

In the qview app, when "save as" is chosen, there is a dialog box where the file name is specified, etc.
The two buttons currently in the dialog box are "save" and "close".

The instant a filename is typed, the button labeled "save" is re-labeled to "open". This behavior is confusing, given that the file is subsequently both saved and re-opened. Changing the text label after one begins typing is confusing, and probably not good practice in UI design.

Also, it seems that the behavior of the "close" button is really "cancel".

Two recommendations:
1. change the text label for the "save" button to "save and reopen", and keep the label static.
2. change the "close" button label to the generally more familiar "cancel".
