on my opensuse 13.1 with dolphin and kde 4.11.3 if you select (select
files do not select filenames) one or more files where the filename

in kwrite or libreoffice calc or paste special as unformatted text in
libreoffice writer the filename will result as the character "#"
substituted with %23 (for example from try1#123 to try1%23123).
I tried in libreoffice calc to change character sets and languages in
the import text windows but without success.
how to have the correct character pasted??
manythanx :-) ciao :-) pier

You raise an interesting question. However, I think that behavior that you describe is correct since when you copy from a file manager, what you expect is the URL that can be used to reference the file in any application and that includes if you pasted it into a Konsole. What is happening is that all special characters are being converted to the %<value> form which might not be needed in all cases however it is needed in the case of a <blank> which is not recognized by all applications.

You could report this as a bug, or feature request, that if the URL was pasted into an editor that special characters should be left in human readable form.
