When I attempt to export my Kmail data, the window titled "PIM Setting Exporter" is blank.

1. Open Kmail or Kontact
2. In the Kmail menu, go to Tools>Import/Export Kmail Data
3. Watch new open window and observe results

PIM Settings Exporter window is blank.

For PIM Settings Exporter window to have UI content to execute the Kmail data exporting features.

Linux/KDE Plasma: KDE Neon 5.16.2

Qt Version: 5.12.3

See screenshot for observed result

It's a bug from your distro.
Missing toolbar.

I thought KDE Neon was maintained by the KDE community? If it's not, where do I go to report this but?

Please first check if this is not an issue with a freshly created user account. By default, the exporter application should show a menubar.

I didn't realize this was significant until now, but I have the global menu bar widget in the panel at the top of my screen. In there I find menu items pertaining to PIM Exporter tool. For those that use the global menu widget, being greeted to a blank screen appears that the program isn't loading or that there are buttons one might expect that are missing.

I would encourage adding a few simple buttons on the main screen interface, the most obvious being "Import Kmail data" and "Export Kmail data", clicking either of those opening the appropriate import & export windows. I feel that would clear up any confusion users might have like me who have global menu enabled and don't see any buttons, icons or any elements in the window.
