Exactly, thanks for having point to this :-) !

Remote properties recursively : different octal for directories and files?

WinSCP 5.17.7 using SFTP to linux server.
When using on remote panel "Properties" + "Set group, owner and permissions recursively"
this is applied similar to directories and files.
But usually – if I'm not mistaken – there is a difference between directories and files
Directories : 0755 / rwxr-xr-x
Files : 0644 / rw-r--r--
Could that be added, as it would be useful when acting on an deep tree-structure and avoid correcting with
find -depth -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;
# find -depth -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;

Think there is just place in the window to change "Octal" in "Octal directories" and add right of it "Octal files".... Or duplicate the "Permissions" block (in purple on the screenshot) : one for folders / directories and one for files?
Thanks for your work!
