Hi!

Currently overwrite prompt in WinSCP looks like this:

<invalid hyperlink removed by admin>

I found it not so convenient and spent few seconds every time to decide right button (usually - "Yes to all").

I think it will be better to redesign this window like this:

<invalid hyperlink removed by admin>

It will group similar buttons and make layout more logical. Some time ago FAR Manager used layout like this and I think WinSCP should too ^^

Thanks!

I appreciate any feedback.

Thanks for reply.

I have Windows XP T_T That's why I didn't notice this change in latest beta.

Under Windows 7 it looks nice not so convenient. Instead of all these pull-down menus you can use single checkbox "Use this action for all files" or something like this. Current versions of FAR Manager use this approach. And it's more keyboard friendly.

But there are lot of other minor options, that this would not take care of, like Newer Only, Append, Resume and New Name. Keyboard accelerators still work as before.
