Hello guys,

I just finished fixing an UI bug on the file properties dialog you can find
at File -> Properties...-> 'General' tab.

I discovered that the size and positions of the buttons on this dialog
weren't automatically calculated according the text they contain, which
causes the following bug on some translations when the text is too large for
the button. 

The name field is now centered according to the space size between the Bmp
image and the ''Change password' button. In my code, you will see at line
841 from char 28 I added '- IMPL_EXTRA_BUTTON_WIDTH / 2 ' which seems to be
useless to calculate distance between two points but this fix the following
centering problem.
I just noticed that the position given by the GetSizePos() method is
mistaken on the Bmp item.
When I tried to set the name field and Bmp image to the same X position as
the 'Change password' button, I remarked that the Bmp image has a X position
to far to the right corresponding to the IMPL_EXTRA_BUTTON_WIDTH /2. 

Imho the GetSizePos() method is responsible of that. Has anyone an idea?

Results: UI bug solved screenshot (French and Dutch translations both works

PATCH: 0001-Fix-controls-size-and-position-on-the-document-infor.patch 

I took also the opportunity to fix some indentation to get a consistent look
in code.

Best regards.

Have a nice day.
