When saving image files from map composer, the file type extension is not written


#1 Updated by Marco Hugentobler about 14 years ago

You mean the file extension if not written even if entered by the user?
Or do you mean it is not automatically appended?

If it is the first: I cannot reproduce it. Does it only happen in certain cases?

It it is the second: I'm not sure that it should be. In Unix philosophy, the content of the file is independent from its extension.

Ok, after looking at other applications: some append extension automatically and others don't. I have the impression that the user-friendly ones do, so we should do it too.
