Example 2: Transfer Files from Remote to Local (for the first time)
(1) Launch the application. Click on the FTP button shown in top red square, which will open the FTP toolbar at the bottom.
(2) Click on the Add remote files button shown in red square above. Since this is the first time, you need to provide information about the remote host. Thus this dialog will appear, where you fill up the empty fields.
Soon you will be connected to the system and the following browsing dialog will appear.
(3) From Browse Remote system dialog, navigate the file-system and select files that you want to add to the session. Here is an snapshot of the selection:
Hit OK, and this is how the main list will appear
One important question at this point is, where will these files be transferred to? In other words, what is the Local Directory for these files?
Right click on My Session and select Properties... which will show Session Attributes as shown below. Here, Default Remote Directory is the last accessed remote directory, set to /public_html/Test/ from our last activity, and Defualt Local Directory is initialized to C:\TMT-WorkFiles\ by default, because we have not accessed any local directory yet. Had we accessed any local directory from TextMaestro, that would reflect here.
(4) Hit To local button, or F4. (See red square above.)
Since the host is already connected, the file transfer will follow. Notice, File icons changed after successful FTP:
(1) Should any of these files go to a different local directory, select the file, click on File Attributes button (Ctrl+Q), and change the Local Directory. You can have files mapped to multiple hosts pointing to various locations. In that case they will be transferred from corresponding host, and hosts will be connected on demand.
(2) Local directories are created on demand during FTP. So you can simply hand-edit a non-existing path for Local Directory in File Attributes dialog.
(3) See Example 1 for comments on icon changes.
