Drag and Drop - Local to Remote folders

First of all I would like to say that SmartFTP is the best FTP client I have seen / used to date. I have been using BulletproofFTP for 6 years and feel its time to upgrade so I am evaluating SmartFTP and so far have only found one issue thats a show stopper for me... but that will be outlined in another topic because the one below is not it.


This problem was brought up earlier.

When dragging and dropping from local to remote you must drag to a folder or to an empty space in the list.

If you drag to be on top of another file name it does not allow.

I think that this should still be addressed and resolved. If there was another way to upload other then dragging and dropping it would not be an issue for me. Suchas if you were able to select that double click uploaded the file from local to remove then I could care less about the drag drop issue becauase I would never use it.

I'm sorry but I don't see your problem. You can drag&drop any local files to the remote browser's list control unless you are directly hoovering over a folder's name. For example you can move the mouse over the size/date/type/permission information and you can drop the files. This works exactly the same way as the Windows Explorer implementation. There are no plans to change this behavior.


Hello ..

Finally I figured out what you meant. I guess I wasn't trying hard enough :-(
It's not possible to drop item(s) over the file name in the list control as well. Please test it with the latest version:
