Hi all,

for some weird reasons the "file mask" option "Use same option next time" doesn't work.
I use OS Window 7 and I have the newest version of WinSCP installed.
I click the checkbox, but the program simply doesn't remember my settings.

all the best

Thanks for your report.

Can you provide us more details? Step by step instructions to reproduce the bug? Maybe with few screenshots?

Dear Martin Prikryl,

I think your program is magnificent and I hope to provide you with the necessary information to tackle the problem:

WinSCP Version 5.7.6.

OS Name Microsoft Windows 7 Professional
Version 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601
System Manufacturer LENOVO
System Model 20DLCTO1WW
System Type x64-based PC
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-5600U CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2601 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)

here my steps:

1) click "Synchronize"
2) click "Transfer Settings" (screenshot)
3) go to "Other: > "File Mask"
4) writting mask into field
5) click OK > close "Transfer Settings"
6) click checkmark "Use same option next time" (screenshot)
7) OK
Cool The Task is then flawlessly executed by WinSCP
9) but in the following synchronization, the mask in the "Use same option next time" has disappeared and the checkmark is empty
10) and that means I have to go to step 3 and repeat procedure (screenshot)

best

Thanks for the details.

That's by design.

It's even documented:
https://winscp.net/eng/docs/ui_synchronize#saving_options
The option Use same options next time is deliberately above the Transfer settings to make this clear.

There are no synchronization-specific transfer settings.

You need to change the default transfer settings.

Got it.

Maybe in a later version it would be possible to enter those masks for each new connection to a specific DIR individually.

Thank you

WinSCP supports autoselection rules for transfer settings. So the settings can be host- and directory-specific.

Thank you Martin,

I see now how it works -- quite hidden and not so obvious -- so please forgive me, for my last question:

for what is the "Use same option next time" in the "Transfer Settings" window then?

I assume you have meant "Synchronize" dialog.
It's to remember the synchronization options.
