Current: WinSCP 4.3.2

Preferences > Transfer > Presets

For each preset, in the "Automatically select this preset when" form, additional choices for the direction of transfer would be helpful. For example, two checkboxes:
[ ] Local
[ ] Remote

Rationale: When transferring between my Windows and Linux boxes, I want transfers from Linux to Windows to automatically be binary since I have Windows tools which can handle these files (Notepad++). From Windows to Linux is safest in auto-mode since I may be uploading Windows formatted files.

It makes sense. But it does not fit with current approach. I'll see if more people ask for this.
