Good day! When I copy files or folders using F5 button, there is a window with checkbox "preserve attribute". This checkbox is always on by default. But I want it to be off by default. How can I do it? I search on the site, but find nothing similar.

I change this file, restart mc, open file again and see that it is like it was not changed. What am I doing wrong?

Replying to projectrom:

What am I doing wrong?

You're modifying ini in the mc, aren't you?
Any changes in the ini file should be made a) when no any mc instance is running and b) using any editor other than mcedit.

Yes, I used mcedit to modify. It was my mistake. Now it's ok. Thx a lot!
