on osx the import via shift+ctrl+drag file into plex deletes the file extension on *.mov files - the files gets imported alright, but without an extension - and is thus not recognizable by osx.

A manual rename operation with the .mov extension solves the problem, and a movie icon appears in the thought. When I repeat the import sequense with a second *.mov file then the icon of the newly imported movie disappears from the thought - why is that?  and is it posible to  control which icon to be displayed on the  thought in the plex? This would be especially practical when you have more than one attachment to a thought.

We'll take a closer look at the icon issues you've mentioned in this and other posts.

Yes, you can customize the icon display for individual thoughts.  If you open and image (.jpg or .gif file) in a browser window, you can simply right click and select copy.  This copies the image onto your clipboard.  On the Properties and Attachments tab for any thought, click on the Display drop down menu and select Paste Thought Icon.  This selection will only appear as an option if you have an image on your clipboard.
