File access menu while inside the remote management RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-537400390 posted
    When I entered remote ftp mode, I am able to view the remote directory fine. I browse to the file and double-click the file and it opens in the editor window. I make changes, save and it's sent back to the servers fine. When I right click the menu, it downloads the file but there is no control whatsoever, it just downloads and overwrites the file I have locally. At first I thought I was right clicking to bring up the menu so I can edit it. There are so many options when I right click files on the home(local) view, that I was left wanting more options while in the remote sectiion. I clicked on the only option at the time of this post: "Download Remote Version" and after clicking... 1. There is no feedback of where it was saved to (just a yellow tab on the bottom showing activity) 2. The only way I knew it was going to the right directory was if I had a file open in the home view, and the file was different than what I was downloading, it gave me the full options of refreshing to see the new changes, or discarding the recent changes detected while my file was open. The reason I'm posting this, was I clicked this only menu item in the remote view hoping to download so I could see it open to begin editing, that did not happen. The only way I was able to open the file was to double click the file. ALSO... The open command, or any other items in the remotte view ribbon does not reflect any remote activity whatsoever... just noticed now.

    Hi, thanks for taking the time to try out the Beta and provide us with detailed feedback.

    These are some great points and we'll look at how to address them in our next release. Adding a right-click menu and making this experience more intuitive is definitely in our plans.

    For the notification about where it is saved, were you expecting to see the file path where it was being saved?

    Thanks again!
