I just tested in Notepad and it doesn't happen but it was a very short trial period.

What doesn't make sense is - I have switched PCs and switched Dreamweaver versions all fine, it is only since the last few releases of SmartFTP that the issue has happened. I run Dreamweaver CS5.5. I wonder if the poster above uses a different version?

The file monitor has been rewritten so that might be a possible reason.

I Use Dreamweaver CS3, as the poster above mentions it has only started occurring in the latest two versons of smartftp, previously it worked flawlessly.

Any fixes on this? Just opened a file up for Remote Editing this morning........ edited it, it saved. Closed the file. Went back to open it again for remote editing but this time when I hit save the scheduler did not run.

We are still waiting for your instructions on how to reproduce the problem. Did you try it with notepad? There won't be a fix for something we cannot reproduce.

See my posts - they are all examples. Here's another one: open two files on Remote Edit. One will auto reupload because of a bug, made a tiny edit and save that file, it will re-upload the opposite file.

No more updates? I'm suprised there aren't dozens of people experiencing this issue. Almost every webmaster who uses SmartFTP would use Remote Edit with Dreamweaver - and it would not be saving the files properly.

Seriously this happens constantly to everyone using Dreamweaver (must be the most popular web editor in the world after Notepad) with SmartFTP. You acknowledged it was because of the editor rewrite.

Do you have DW to test it with? It honestly is a huge problem and any company who uses the combo will have to switch FTP software.

Notch up another user experiencing this problem with Dreamweaver + SmartFTP. Have been using Dreamweaver + SmartFTP's remote file editing on Windows Vista since late last year with no problems. Clean installed Windows 7 with Dreamweaver CS5 and the latest version of SmartFTP (4.0.1217.0), and now SmartFTP fails to save remotely edited files on a regular basis.

The problem does not seem reproducible using Notepad + SmartFTP, though I have only run a cursory test.

Is there some sort of debug logger that can be activated in SmartFTP to gain a better insight into how this error is occurring?

Does it work with any other application that does the same as SmartFTP?
