Don’t Wait for Me, FTP!

Dreamweaver is loaded with lots of little time savers, but this is one of the few with which you can specify the time being saved. Have you ever started an FTP session to transfer a slew of files and decided to take a break—only to come back 10 minutes later and see a dialog on the screen asking permission to overwrite the second file in the queue? Very frustrating. With Dreamweaver’s FTP, such dialog’s default action (typically OK) can be automatically accepted after a set number of seconds. Check out the Site category of Preferences, in the File Transfer Options area. If you check the Select Default Actions in Dialogs option, you can set how long you want Dreamweaver to wait before proceeding. Now, go enjoy that break while Dreamweaver does all the heavy lifting—you deserve it!
