The file creation dialog in Dolphin should only highlight the basename when creating a file.

As it is now, everything including the extension is selected, so you can't just type the file name and hit Enter to create it.

Basically, it should behave like the file save dialog

How to reproduce:
* Go to Dolphin's menu - (File) - Create New - select any file that usually has an extension, like .txt or .html
* everything will be highlighted, including the extension

This would need to be implemented somewhere in kio/src/filewidgets/knewfilemenu.cpp.
