How can you do the following?

I want to make a default list of favorites for our company. I know you can export the favorites to a .txt file but I can't import this file. You can only import from ws_ftp or a few other ftp clients. Am I missing something?

Thanx in advance

And just using the *.dat file doesn't work either?

You can find Favorites.dat in your Data File Path (Map gegevensbestand) (with me that is C:Program FilesSmartFTPDataFiles).

Where you set your Data File Path (Map gegevensbestand) to can be found in Menu: Tools -> Settings -> General (Menu: Extra -> Instellingen -> Algemeen)

There's more info at the Knowledge Base about your issue (https://www.smartftp.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3738)

By the way, let me just ask you, what FTP client is your company using:?: I had heard that there apparently isn't another way (yet) to import favorites with FTP clients that do not support the SmartFTP *.dat or *.txt file... hopefully it's almost on top of the developer's 'ToDo' list.

I'm just thinking of an alternative, you could of course also load the *.txt file in an FTP application that does support the *.dat/*.txt file and save it in a different format.
I honestly don't have any experience with other FTP clients, so I'm not sure which one is capable of doing that.
