When I use SmartFTP to edit files directly within the program it doesn't automatically overwrite the existing file on my site.

For example: I go "file-I-want-to-edit.html>Open With>SmartFTP" and then it opens in the window on the right-hand side. Next I make a few changes and click the Save icon but nothing happens. It doesn't update the file in my website directory. It used to be able to do this but I think one of the settings might have changed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It's SmartFTP Version 4.0.1145.0

My copy paste hasn't been working lately and I've been meaning to look into the system files to fix it but, I wasn't about to type the entire System Info out by hand.
Let me know if you need any other details specifically.
