[5.2.2 beta] What about saving passwords with the Workspace?

Hi, I tried this great new feature of saving workspaces.
But the window has this option for saving the passwords disabled.
Why is that even there? Every session that I have opened has the password already saved.
And when I open WinSCP and just try to login to the workspace it starts asking me for each individual password.

Also, what about being able to create a workspace from a folder of sessions within the site manager or just drag saved sessions to a workspace, then I could start WinSCP and click once and have several session connect?
Idea: Open the site manager -> right-click on a folder of sites -> "Create workspace from folder..."

That's exactly the reason the checkbox is disabled. You have all passwords saved in sites already, so there's nothing to be saves to a workspace.

And when I open WinSCP and just try to login to the workspace it starts asking me for each individual password.
Not sure I understand now. You wrote above that you have passwords stored in the sites. Yet you get prompted for passwords. So if you open a site individually, you do not get prompted, while if you open a workspace that contains the same site, you get prompted?

Also, what about being able to create a workspace from a folder of sessions within the site manager or just drag saved sessions to a workspace, then I could start WinSCP and click once and have several session connect?

Just select the folder, click Login to open all sites in the folder. Then in the main window go to Session > Save Workspace.

Yes, it was exactly like that. However, I just restarted WinSCP and tried to login and it didn't ask me. Repeated - still did not ask me. Great.
Also, 10x for the other clarifications. I understand now.

But, one thing I don't understand: I open a saved session or Directory of sessions and several tabs get opened. Yet, only the first one gets connected. The others only connect after I click on them. And they are dark-grey.
Why is that? I would like all my sessions to connect immediately after they get open.

That can take ages, if you have lot of sessions.

Yes, but I have only 4 :D
And I would like them to auto-connect. Would you please, add a force option to connection all sessions? And if you like you can make it OFF by default.
