I've noticed this for quite some time. It might or might not be a bug, and if it is not a bug then consider it a feature request.

I have remote folders that have 1000's of files in them, making it really hard to pick one file for downloading. so I like to use the manual transfer option.

When I specify the name of the file I am downloading and then hit the download button it tells me the "local files is a drectory instead of a regular file".

Ofcourse the solution is to copy the file name to be downloaded to the left side after the path indicated the download location.

Personally, I feel that if the download path is set there, and if I don't specify a local file, the remote file should be the default new localfile name.

I don't see a logical everyday reason to change the name of the downloaded file because usually when you are done editing the file and are ready to to upload it, it will be the same name. so why change it. Regardless the reason for the current behavior, I feel it should be changed to automatically create the local filename.

Alternatively a configuration section to allow changing that behavior and if you do that, an option to make the start transfer immediately box automatically set or not, like whatever is there to be remembered for next time.

caveat: after all this time I bothered to look to see if you had a find option and you do, i might start using that now.
