Doc… Have you configured DW somehow to not be so slow when interacting with FTP? This is my biggest problem with it. Not only that, you don’t have complete freedom with the FTP. Sure, you can work remotely on the FTP setup, but if u want sync power and FTP, you are pretty much forced to work always with your local files, then upload it. I don’t know, just really messes up my workflow and I feel like it takes me forever to do things. Not only that, but I’ve worked on a few things where someone else has edited the remote file… And what do I do? Edit *my* local file, then upload it.. Opps, now all their work is gone. I know thats a specific scenario, but still, something about DW just erks me.

E-Texteditor is nice… However, have you not had it crash on you multiple times? I’ve had it crash on me 5+ times a day for 5 days straight and I’m not exaggerating. What plugins do you use for your enhancements? I went looking through them and didn’t see anything that stuck out really as being useful, but I could have easily passed over something. Not only that, but the FTP support on E is very limited as well it seems. Unless I’m missing the plugins of all plugins! I have no problem paying 35 or whatever it is for it, but if it keeps crashing and isn’t what I’m looking for FTP wise… I’m not sure about this WinSCP, but I’ll give it a look after this post. Seriously though, I’d be interested to know which plugins you use for E.

And yes, it is quite the rant, because after downloading so many editors, trying them all out, finding the same crap with all of them, I just wish i could use Coda. Simple as that. :|
