2 minor issues of new versions

Hello.

The progress panel for copy shows up only after some time (a split of a second) - I know this is not to show it completely for quick operations, but the result is WinSCP seems slow or non-responsive. I would like the old behavior back, probably as an option.

New icons - I like the old ones style, and the new icon set is really stupid. Also, I now have to search for the icons I used to know well, like Refresh, in order to do basic actions. Is it possible to select any icons via settings? I could not even find the new icons in the exe's resources using ResHacker.

Overall I'm disappointed with the interface changes in the new version 5.5 and looks like you had nothing to do but mess up what already had worked fine :)

I forgot 1 thing: is there a way to control the font of the Terminal window (Ctrl-T)?

OK, will consider this.

No. The old icons were discontinued. We have no capacity to maintain separate sets of icons. Note that we obviously add new icons now and then for new features.

I'm sorry for that, but generally we received positive feedback on the changes.

Not yet.
Option for configurable font size is tracked here:

As time goes by the copy panel seems to become slower and slower which irritates me quite. Can you fix this sooner?

Is this your impression or a fact? :)

Sometimes the network is slow and it seems this keeps the panel hidden noticeably longer than usual.

OK, that's true. Will take a look.

Well, I tried it and when I copy files from/to the server I see the panel shows up quickly with no delay. Is that the thing you wanted me to test? Is this behavior optional or 'for everybody'?

Yes. Thanks for your feedback. Let me know if anything goes wrong.

It's "for everybody".
