1) You can't easily drag files into a folder on a site that has loads of folders in it without first scrolling down so that the folders are "out of of the way". I.e., it insists on wanting to drag the file into one of the existing folders. It would be nice to be able to drag a file to the right blank area without it insisting the file should go int one of the folders.
Can you be more specifiec as to where do you drop files? As long as you drop them out of a directory row (i.e. below directories or right to them), WinSCP should upload to the current directory. So first, do you use Explorer or Commander interface? Do you drop to file list or directory tree? If in Explorer interface, what view style do you use?
I believe it's the Explorer (side-by-side) interface, with or without directory tree. When you drag a file into the window, it automatically highlights the entire line you're hovering over, regardless of where you are hovering horizontally on the line. Releasing the left mouse button will place the file into the subfolder that's on that line. So as far as I can tell, in order to drop a file into the current folder, it has to be below all subfolders in the list (which isn't conventional Windows GUI behavior, which lets you drag to the right of folders as valid "draggable space" into the current folder). This is inconvenient if you have a lot of copying to do in a folder that contains a lot of subfolders. Because after you drag a file over (after having scrolled below the subfolders to currently draggable territory), the program refreshes the visible window contents back to the top, where all the subfolders are, and in order to copy more files over, you have to again scroll down below all the subfolders.
2) A "Save as" would be nice in the editor

3) Can't seem to eliminate the ^M's that are appended to ends of lines when displayed in Linux environments. I've tried setting it to "binary" mode for all transfers (per another thread), and that didn't fix it. Any ideas?
Do you mean that you cannot drop ^M when uploading the files? You should use text/ascii mode for that. Please read documentation
(see note about uploading from editor). What protocol are you using?
Right, I guess the editor is including ^M's at the end of every line, and I want them to be removed. I'm using regular FTP. Is there a setting somewhere to remove them?
