I downloaded WinSCP only last month, and love the product! Very Happy I had two 'wishes' for a next version, one of which (properly saving the settings after changing them) was already implemented in the latest version which I just downloaded.

The other tiny thing I'd like to see in a new version is that WinSCP uses the same layout for the toolbar across sessions. The comboboxes that now show the local and remote directories are very narrow. I resize them to show their contents, but have to do this each time I use WinSCP.

But, again, that's only a tiny request, and it won't stop me from making a donation later this week.

Gotta balance my bank accounts, first. Cool

I admit that it is not working properly. I'm still struggling with it. However if you double-click on beginning of the toolbar, it expands as much as it can. The "expanded" state is preserved across sessions (at least for me Smile)

Sorry, but that doesn't work for me!

Computersoftware? It remains an almost magical thing! Razz

As I said, it's no big deal...

Do you know if sending NULL packets to keep a connection alive functions properly? Sometimes when I don't do anything for a short while, the server kicks me off. It does that sometimes when I'm working, too (I'm using a very, VERY cheap hosting company Smile) so I'm not sure if it's a bug in WinSCP or not. However, it seems to happen more often when I'm not working for a while, that's why I'm wondering if it's a bug.

Three hours left to go till the end of this week; I better keep the promise I made earlier this week and make that donation. Smile

Thanks, again, for making WinSCP!

NULL packets are just hint to the server that the client is still running. The server may ignore them anyway. Sourceforge server (where WinSCP is hosted) does the same (not for WinSCP, but for interactive SSH session). However, when I have the option turned on, I may leave the client alone for longer time than without it.
