A FTP Job 'Transfer type' setting always appears as set to 'binary' when the job is edited in the AWI, even if something else has been set.

Investigation

In the AWI, create a RA FTP job and add a "copy file" action to it. Set the transfer type to something different than 'BINARY' ("ASCII" for example) and save the job.

Close it and open it again. It will display BINARY, regardless of which transfer type was initially set.

This is a display issue that occurs in the AWI only. The same job edited in the Java User Interface will show the correct type:
