hi rowland and thank you ... banging my head against the wall.

you are right.
i tested with plasma kwrite and this is doing, as you said.
i also testet photoshop and i see the same.
after that, i used "the great" paint and no files where moved to recycle.

dammit never thought about this.

thanks a lot an "stay at home" ... strange time

kind regards,
