The left side of the dialog box lists the named Transfer Sets. During Parameter Transfer, and when applying a Favorite, you can choose any one of these sets.

One of the sets is tagged as the default to use when applying Favorites.

See Set as Default for Favorites.

Note: Element Transfer Settings and the named Transfer Sets are stored with the project. However, the Favorite default is a user preference and stored locally.

//helpcenter.graphisoft.com/wp-content/uploads/ac21_help/02-interaction/DefaultFavoriteTransfer.png 

This set will be used when you apply any Favorite (double-click the Favorite, or click the Apply button). You can see this preference if you click the Apply Transfer Settings pop-up in the Favorites interface:

//helpcenter.graphisoft.com/wp-content/uploads/ac21_help/02-interaction/DefaultFavoriteTransferApply.png 

The Favorite default is a user preference and stored locally.

Of course, when applying a Favorite, you can click any other set in the list to apply that set of preferred parameters.
