You should see a dotted rectangle around a focused file.
Its does not seeing.
Do I understand right that you saw it in older versions of WinSCP?
Can you find out what version introduced the problem?
I can't replay it now. I set now old version.. in older version i don't see the current bar too. Maybe earlier i used another OS - winXP (now win7) i just don't remember. so i cant explain the problem.
In video totorial that you make for explain how to use winSCP - i see the dotted rectangle on '..' but i don't see in at new and old version.
SO i learn some cases where i can't see current bar position:
1. Always when you stand on '..' by keyboard(in all case - when you use tab - to another panel where default position right '..'. Or i use up\down button and when i reach '..' current bar - disappear.
2. when you press on '..' and come on upper level folder it dasn't show this folder as current. its become showing only when use arrow keys(up,down), but sometime its don't working when use up|down keys until you'll come end of file list.
