It is confusing to people when they see in the Nautilus SidePane how things are categorized by DEVICES, COMPUTER, NETWORK only to be confronted with a lack of the same categorization/demarcation when they are presented with a Save-As dialog box. This results in users not fully understanding where something is going to be saved.

The Save-As dialog box should use the same categorization/demarcation paradigm as the Nautilus SidePane. For example, look at the two screenshots I have attached. In the "Nautilus SidePane" screenshot, you can see that HOME, DESKTOP, and FILE SYSTEM are all located under the COMPUTER heading. This clearly communicates that these folders are located on the user's computer. Now look at the "Save-As dialog SidePane". Notice how the USER, DESKTOP, and FILE SYSTEM folders are located where the DEVICES are listed? This is confusing. These folders are located on the COMPUTER and yet they are being listed along with DEVICES. The Save-As dialog box layout should match Nautilus' SidePane layout. That is, USER, DESKTOP, and FILE SYSTEM should be moved below the "DEVICES section" so they are listed together with the other folders located on the user's computer.

Hi nick rundy,

This is definitely a bug atleast that's what I think. I have commented in the bug report and marked it NEW.
