GUI: Drag+Drop / Window Menu / Focus-Selection
we are using WinSCP at work, currently version 4.1.7 on WinXP SP2; GUI-version with Commander-interface.
I have only minor bugs/requests.
Reconstructable: When I drag remote files (right pane) to my local directory (left pane) there is the feature to drop it on either executable files (i.e. BAT, VBS, ZIP, CMD) or directories. As I understood, this exists to automatically perform an action with the two files (the one which is dropped, the other one which resides beneath the spot where the dragged file will be dropped). But I have no option to completely disable this behaviour. This is quite frustrating because my local directory contains lots of directories - hence I always have to scroll down until I find a spot where I can drop the dragged (remote) file to NOT let it transfer into a subdirectory. Could you implement such an option?
Reconstructable: Clicking on the window menu of WinSCP (i.e. on the item "Help") while another window has the focus switches the focus to WinSCP as expected - but the submenu does not stay open - it immediatly closes again. This is just a minor curiosity I found ;-)
Reconstructable: WinSCP is connected, the remote directory is listed, the selection and focus is on one file entry, another window has the focus (because I switched to i.e. Explorer via ALT+TAB), the mouse cursor position is outside of WinSCP: when I activate WinSCP (i.e. by ALT+TABing back to it) and then hit CTRL+R for a refresh of the remote listing and after it move the focus (i.e. by keys UP or DOWN) the selection stays with the file entry and ONLY the focus moves. Should be a minor visual bug, but sometimes ends in an Access Exception after another action (like pressing the APP-key to open up the context menu). This behavior of not moving both (focus and selection) does not occur if the mouse cursor position is within the WinSCP-window at the time it is re-activated. See the picture at <invalid link removed> (unlike most Windows configurations my highlight/focus color is not blue but red instead - so you see the selection on one file, but the focus on another).
Thanks for reading :) Keep up the good work!
