Summary0000627: File extensions missing from supported file descriptions in open/save dialgos
DescriptionIn open and save dialogs, supported file types are
described as:

STEP files

Ideally it should be something like:

STEP files (*.stp, *.step)

Since it used to be like that, probably something changed in QT specs.
TagsNo tags attached.

Curiously doing this on the python console gives correct results:

from PyQt4 import QtGui
f=QtGui.QFileDialog(None,"Test","","Text files (*.txt)")

*EDIT* but it is not the same dialog as FreeCAD uses...

ok the problem is when we use QFileDialog.getOpenFileName ... same problem happens in PyQt

Is this still a problem?

Yes, still the same. I had forgotten about this one...

On Linux we do not longer use the static functions but create an instance of QFileDialog where we have full control over its behaviour. This also fixes a couple of other issues we mainly had on KDE.
