Can the behaviour be made the same please?
SINGLE FILE SELECTION
In Windows Explorer:
- Clicking on a single file results in that file being highlighted
- Clicking on a single file results in a line round the file but not it being highlighted.
MULTIPLE FILE SELECTION
In Windows Explorer, to select multiple files, the steps are:
1) Click on one file
2) Hold down Control
3) Click on the second file.
Both files are now selected.
In WinSCP, to select multiple files, the procedure is the same as the above BUT the first file is not then within those highlighted, and that file must be clicked on (with Control) again.
(If Control is held down before any file selection, Windows and WinSCP behave the same. But often one does not remember to hold down Control.)
DESELECTION OF FILES
In Windows Explorer, if any set of files (or a single file) is highlighted, clicking on a different file un-highlights those files which were highlighted.
In WinSCP, doing the same thing results in the set of files remaining highlighted, but the new file having only a line round it, but not acting as if it were a highlighted file. This behaviour is highly confusing. This means that to unselect files, one has to Control-highlight them, which can be an awkward task.
WinSCP's behaviour is also particularly confusing in this regard, because when one file is selected, and another is double-clicked on (indicating open OR transfer), the first file remains highlighted but it is the second, unhighlighted file which has the action taken, and the first file which remains highlighted afterwards, despite nothing having been done to it!
In Windows Explorer, a directory refresh results in all highlighted files being unhighlighted, i.e. return to default.
In WinSCP, files remain highlighted. Again, unselecting a mistakenly selected file for instance, results in Control-select having to be used to deselect a file.
Congratulations on an otherwise excellent product!
