Description Bernhard 2021-08-23 16:43:55 UTC
Stop highlighting the file extension when creating a new file so it behaves the same as renaming files

Choosing Create New > Text file... in the context menu opens a dialog box where the whole name is selected

Like when renaming files, the new file dialog box should not highlight the file extension

Would need to be fixed somewhere in kio/src/filewidgets/knewfilemenu.cpp.
