Default export file type setting

Ken Lo requested to merge kenlo/krita:default-export-file-type-setting into master

Feature request from krita forum

Implemented a setting in configure Krita -> File Handling -> Default Export Filetype Created an option to pick your default export file type. Situations include:

  • New file without extension-> file type filter is setting default file type
  • Open File with extension -> file type filter is setting default file type
  • User picks a different file type (compared to the one in the setting) on the export file dialog -> file type filter is last used export(until user restarts krita or lastExportLocation isn't empty).

Decided it was best to keep this feature limited to exporting because most users would like to save as the same file type.

Test Plan

I recommend changing the drop down setting in File Handling and going through the situations I listed above and then press Export to look at the Files of Type filter.
