I made a small tweak to the language here https://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/f658d41003e4.

Marking as Fixed and closing report.

Thanks Markus, I figured such thing.
It isn't very clearly documented in uigetfile either.

FLTIDX is an index into the list of filters (the first input argument). It corresponds to the element in the popupmenu with the "file extensions" that was selected when the user closed the dialog.

That should be explained (with better wording) in the doc string.

uiputfile has three output arguments. The third one, FLTIDX, isn't documented.
In the limited time I have at work I looked in the code but couldn't discern what it's good for.
