Description Jacopo De Simoi 2018-03-21 17:16:38 UTC
This option used to be there and it is now hidden as soon as multiple messages are selected
Comment 1 Burkhard Lück 2018-03-22 05:41:43 UTC
Ubuntu 17.10 kmail2 5.5.3 KDE Frameworks 5.43.0 Qt 5.9.1
Selecting multiple messages in the messagelist I have the option ”Save attachments…” in the context menu.
Please provide infos about your system and version of kmail + frameworks
Comment 2 Jacopo De Simoi 2018-03-23 02:05:33 UTC
I run gentoo with Qt 5.9.4 and I can reproduce the bug on the following two version combinations:

Kmail 5.7.3 - Frameworks 5.44.0
Kmail 5.7.3 (git Applications/17.12 branch) - Frameworks (git master)
Comment 3 Laurent Montel 2018-03-23 06:09:11 UTC
So we need more explanation.
Could you describe how do you reproduce bug please.
Here it works fine too but perhaps I don't test as you.
Comment 4 Jacopo De Simoi 2018-03-24 03:20:48 UTC
I am afraid I am not doing anything too strange. 
In the message list, when only one message is selected, the context menu (right click) provides the option Save attachments…; as soon as one more message is selected, the option is hidden (sometimes with a noticeable delay so that I can actually see it in the context menu for a split second before disappearing)

I tried to debug it myself, but I have an hard time understanding where, in the source, the action is added to the context menu. 
I could only find “Save attachments” in src/searchdialog/searchwindow.cpp:241, but this is unrelated. 
If you point me to the method where the actions are updated, I can have a look myself

Thanks for your time
