I'm switching from GUI to Console for automation of the Keep file up to date feature.

When using the GUI, I had set a certain default File masks with preset to be selected for all cases that got applied every time I chose to keep files up to date.



Now in Console mode, it seems these defaults aren't applied. The files that ought to be excluded are synchronized anyways.

I realize I needed to manually supply them with the `-filemask=""` argument. I hope I'm not missing a way to have them applied automatically though, like they did in the GUI. Otherwise nevermind this post.

Using -filemask is the correct solution. It is better to isolate your scripts from GUI configuration, so you won't break the script, when the configuration changes.
See http://winscp.net/eng/docs/scripting#configuration

Anyway, scripts do not use presets. Only default transfer settings are uses in the script.
A preset with unconditional rule actually behaves like a default settings in GUI. But not in script.
