HTML-Kit's FTP Workspace
makes it easier to open and edit text files on remote servers
HTML-Kit also makes it possible to edit images and other binary files on remote servers in external programs, even if the external program does not support opening files from FTP servers.
To edit a binary file stored on a FTP server:
- Open the FTP Workspace and right click the binary file.
- Select "
Edit Externally . . ." from the menu.
- Once the "
Edit File in External Application" dialog appears, click the "
Edit using the default application" button.
- The default application for the file type should open with the selected file. Edit, save changes (be sure not to rename the original file) and close the file.
- Finally switch back to HTML-Kit (which should still have the "
Edit File in External Application" dialog open). Click "
OK" to upload changes back to the FTP server.
Note that the above steps are only applicable when editing binary files on remote servers using external programs. Binary files on the local computer can be edited using external programs by right clicking the file and selecting "
" from the Workspace right click menu.
