#3588 closed Bug report

"ask for action" setting doesn't behave as expected

Version , Win XP, Fresh install.

After install, I was asked for confirmation for all uploads. Once I was uploading a bunch of files, so after one confirmation, I've clicked the "always do this" action.

Now it does this for all uploads - transfers without confirmation - even though I've selected in the Transfer settings "Ask for action" for both uploads and downloads.

Settings dialog sets global settings for all sessions. Set action for current session (which overrides global setting) in the transfer menu.

Thanks for this....

Hmmm. When I want to change settings I go to the properties tab for all applications. I found the setting there and it was already set to "ask" and I was confused. Because I thought I'd found the setting I stopped looking then.

I think the global file type setting should at least mention the "local" ones. If you change it, it should tell you that the value you've used is overridden by a local setting that you've set.

Ideally from the Settings... I'd like to be able to, for each transfer, open a properties tab with all the per-transfer settings that I can change and save. Its instantly much clearer then the scope of each settings behaviour...
