Qt file dialogs under GNOME and MATE

Hello,

While ironing out the kinks in the upcoming version of Molsketch with
the upstream developer, we noticed that we weren't seeing the same
dialogs. He is on KDE (OpenSuSE) and I was testing in GNOME and MATE.
Molsketch has an option to save a single molecule/structure with the
.msk extension. Under KDE, the extension appears in the file dialog
and is automatically appended to the file name. This does not happen
under GTK.

He installed Fedora in a VM and ran some tests:

Can anyone help with this?

All the best,
Alex

Qt apps under gnome/mate use QGnomePlatform plugin to provide those UI
elements.

It's possible you're experiencing a bug there or missing feature.

Thank you Rex, from what I understood, we're not the only ones using
it. I think I do need to file a bug report.

Best regards,
