            Bug ID: 13804
           Summary: Preserve permissions for templates
    Classification: Xfce Core
           Product: Thunar
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Medium
         Component: Desktop
          Assignee: xfce-bugs at xfce.org
          Reporter: den_lin at posteo.de
        QA Contact: nick at xfce.org

  Target Milestone: 1.8.0

I created a template for desktop files and another one for shell scripts (it
has #!/bin/sh in the first line and also some other things I always place in my
scripts) in ~/Templates folder and set permissions for them to be executable,
so that when I create a desktop file or script from these templates, they
should already have this permission set. However when I select in Thunar
"Create document" -> new_desktop/new_shell_script, the files it creates do not
have this permission. For every single desktop or script file I need to
manually set that it is executable. Isn't using templates about eliminating the
need for repetitive actions? So I think that Thunar should take permissions
from files in ~/Templates folder and preserve them for created files, including
the execution permission.
