Hi Michael,

thanks for the prompt answer.

What I usually do is open two Dired panels. On top I have my local
directory, and in the bottom panel the remote one. I set
dired-dwim-target to t in my config so the target for the operation is
always the other panel.

Then I basically press C on the file I want to copy. That's it, really,
it doesn't get much complex than that.

My configuration is here: https://github.com/manuel-uberti/.emacs.d

All that is related to Dired, in particular, is in lisp/custom-files.el

If you need me to do some other tests, please feel free to ask.

Thanks again

Manuel Uberti
