Question:Custom Permission Setting Depending File Types

On WinSCP、How can I predefine permissions of uploading files depend on its file types , such as .html .php or a folder? I want to predefine UID GID Sticky bit also. These files with different file types and folders will be uploaded at once rather than separately.

For example, I am uploading a folder which name is test_folder. In the test_folder, there is a php file which name is test_php.php and a html file which name is test_html.html. I want to set WinSCP so that ,at the completion of the upload, the permission of test_folder will be 2755 (2 sand for GID), the permission of test_php.php will be 0755 and the permission of test_html.html will be 0644. These folders and files will be uploaded at once rather than separately.

I think I can do custom permission setting depending file types at Transfer setting present editor on the WinSCPs Preferences Dialog(Transfer Presets tab).
I read the documentation bellow:
https://winscp.net/eng/docs/ui_transfer_preset
However, I was not able to figure out how I can actually set the editor to do what I want to do.

Please someone tell me step by step explanation of how can I do what I want to do above, or tell me URL of site which explain the way of doing it.

WinSCP does not allow that. The presets can be set per directory only, not per file.

prikryl ,thanks for answering my question.

I understand I can not predefine permission per file.
However, after uploading files, is there way to change permission of a set of files in the same directory at once?
I think there is because it is written on the page bellow:
https://winscp.net/eng/docs/task_properties
But there is no explanation of how to do it.

Would someone tell me how to do it?
