the order of these buttons is probably very user-related and only 
really relates to what you are used to. (In windows dialogs are 
Yes/No/Cancel for example and on OSX they are Don't 

I recommend always using the preview function anyway, where you 
also have 2 similar buttons next to each other which are easier 
to read.

There is an undo function if you accidentally discard
