Bug#827766: atril: faulty window to select files

Package: atril
Version: 1.14.1-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

with the upgrading from 1.12 to 1.14 the dialog to open or save documents has
been changed and no longer resembles caja, neither in looks nor in
functionality. This seems illogical to me, as atril is part of MATE.

The new dialog for saving files is missing "recent folders" ("zuletzt
verwendet") which only appears in the dialog to open files.

Furthermore settings which should be systemwide are not applied anymore:
- hidden folders are shown
- single-click is not working (only double click)
- folders and files are mixed
- icons differ from the installed theme.

The same applies to other MATE programs like pluma and engrampa.
This is a nuisance.
