CuteFTP – Life is easier with Lockstep Navigation

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009 | Business | by

CuteFTP ProI’ve been using Globalscape CuteFTP Professional for a long time now.

Just this past week I rebuilt my main work machine (with a fresh Windows 7 installation), and got the opportunity to re-install all of my software.  Yes, it’s annoying reinstalling, but theres a great feeling knowing you have a clean install of the freshest releases.

Yesterday I was working on a website and using CuteFTP to manage deploying my files and I saw something amazing happen…

When I changed my local folder, it would also change my remote folder.  The same happened changing the remote folder, then my local folder would change.

Lockstep Navigation, where have you been all my life!

In case you don’t have this enabled, and you are running CuteFTP Pro — the option is under “Tools”, just a single option in the drop down menu.

I’m sure someone will tell me that they’ve been using it on their Linux box since the mid 90’s, but this is a big deal for me.

Every day I’m working in FTP sites, changing the local folder up one folder, then changing the remote folder up one folder (I always download a complete version of any site I work on, and toss it up on Subversion, so I have mirrored folder structures).

It saves so much time.  If you don’t have it in your FTP client, and you work on the web — you need CuteFTP Professional!

And no, I’m not being paid for any of this.  Actually it costs me money to buy the CuteFTP software, well worth it.
