FileZilla client feature request: moving file function @ the server side should be deactivate

#1 Post by franke12359 » 2018-10-04 15:54

Hello,
I've moved a folder @ the server side with a little mouse movement and did not recognize it.
So the server main daemon was crashed.
If I have a setting to disable these function that this mistake did not happen.
I've used a ssh connection.

Thanks.

Michael.

Hello again,
I've found a solution, but it is a Q&D hack.
1.
You have to locate the FileZilla global settings file:
@ MacOs X look into your user Home folder:
~/.filezilla/filezilla.xml
@ UNIX look into your user Home folder:
~/.config/filezilla/filezilla.xml
@ Windows:
%APPDATA%/FileZilla/filezilla.xml
2.
edit this file by adding a line in the section settings:
<Settings>
<Setting name="Drag and Drop disabled">1</Setting>
...
</Settings>
</FileZilla3>

3.
enjoy the new functionality !

My Question is now:
Why does this function is not disabled by default ?
Why does this function is so difficult to put it into the settings dialoque ?

I'am very disappointed about that !

Michael.

Easy. That feature is an expert feature. It disables D&D in the entire application, no Dragging works anymore, at all. If it was to be made a GUI option, many clueless people would just enable it and then complain here. Same about defaults. A plethora of people would come here and complain why D&D doesn't work.

If you feel that is easy... It's your turn.
You get a better usability by asking the user like "Do you really want to move that folder from ... to ... ?"
The user may disable this warning.
