Suggestion: remember overwrite action for this connection?

#1 Post by banana » 2010-06-11 07:51

When transmitting a file that already exists, you get the overwrite/skip/etc dialog, with the option "Always use this action", and sub-options "Apply to current queue only" and "Apply only to uploads" (or only to downloads if you're downloading).

How about adding another sub-option: "Apply during this connection only", which would remember the action for as long as I keep connected to the current server. This would be REALLY handy when I'm connected to a server, and drag some files in there every few minutes (which happens quite often when I'm incrementally updating a site or server or backing up stuff or whatever).

I hope you will consider adding this... It would definitely make my life easier and I'd love FileZilla even more! :mrgreen:


(PS. I already mentioned this earlier in general duscussion, but I thought it'd make more sense to request it here in the development section...)

There is a problem with that: FileZilla uses additional connections for the transfers. When transfers stop, the transfer connections are dropped after being 60 seconds idle. So a "Remember for this tab" option makes more sense.

No, all feature requests should go straight to the tracker.

Oh, right, yes! Actually, "remember for this tab" is even better as it also keeps working when I get disconnected from the server (which happens from time to time, some servers more than others).

But I think it should not remember the setting if you connect to a new server within the same tab.

Thanks, will do!

I have the opposite problem... How do you get FZ to remember "Always use this action"?

Being a user new to Mac, I am also having issues with FileZilla remembering 'Always Use This Action'.

I tick the box when transferring files and when I open FZ again, the box is unticked.

For a permanent overwrite action, visit the settings dialog.

Perhaps you can point me in that direction please.

I have searched for settings and can't find anything at all to make a permanent overwrite.

As mentioned earlier, the only box I can see to make the change is tick the box for 'always use this action' - but I'm obviously not in the correct area.

Do excuse my ignorance here.

I didn't have any issues when using Windows.

In the main settings dialog of FileZilla you can set a permanent action.
