#5288 reopened Bug report
Image files with a "." (dot) prefix are transferred as ASCII
|Reported by:||Jamie Burchell||Owned by:|
|Keywords:||ASCII, dot, images, thumbnails||Cc:||simon@…, jamie@…|
|Component version:||Operating system type:||Windows|
|Operating system version:||Windows 7|
FileZilla Client version 126.96.36.199
When downloading image files (tested with jpg files) that have a "." prefix in the filename the files are transferred in ASCII mode instead of binary.
Such images are created by components of FCKEditor to hold a small thumbnail version of a large image and are named in the format ".myimage.jpg"

Configuring the client to download as ASCII or binary for dotfiles isn't a particularly useful option as .htaccess is ASCII whereas .thumb.jpg is binary. Can it not detect binary files, even if helped by extension.
Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
See filetype page in the settings dialog, it has an option on how dotfiles should be treated if using auto-select.
