Yesterday, we showed you five cool Transmit tricks.
Today, we’ve got five more to share!
This one will take a little explaining, so stick with me.
Let me explain how to set it up, as that’s the best way to understand exactly what DockSend is.
Go-in and edit a Favorite and enable DockSend.
For DockSend to work, you’ll also want to make sure your favorite has both a Remote Path–this is where your files go–and a Local Path–where your file come from.
Now that you’re all setup, this is how the magic happens.
If you drag and drop a file or folder from Finder to the Transmit dock icon, Transmit will look at your favorites and look at all of your DockSend settings for your Favorites. If it finds that your DockSend Local Path matches the file you just dragged and dropped from Finder, it will automatically connect and upload the file to the specified Remote Path.
“Based on where the file came from, Transmit picks the right place for it to go.”
Just think about this one a little, as it can really take your Transmit use to a whole new level.
Droplets are similar to the DockSend feature, but are more specific in nature.
To create a Droplet, you right-click on one of your Favorites and select, ‘Save as Droplet.’ Your essentially creating a mini app, so you can place it on your desktop, app dock or folder. You can even email them to someone who uses Transmit!
Once you’ve created your Droplet, any file that you drag and drop will automatically upload.
Go ahead. Try one. It’s awesome.
3. Navigate Local & Remote Simultaneously
This is so awesome.
I absolutely love it.
When you enable Linked Folder Navigation, your folder navigation on you remote or local folders will mirror your actions. So, if you navigate away from your ‘images’ folder to your ‘wp-contents’ folder in your local pane, and your folder hierarchy matches on the remote side, it will do the same! No more repetitive clicking!
You can enable this via ‘Go’ > ‘Link Folder Navigation.’ But I prefer “Shift+Command+L” to toggle it on and off.
4. Auto-Update “Get Info”
Normally when you need to “Get Info,” it’s with one folder or file, but what if you want to check multiple? Or how about clicking through a number of files and folders?
That’s a lot of right-clicking and floating windows, right?
Drop a lil’ “Option+Command+I” action.
Go ahead. Open up Transmit and play around with it.
You can thank me later.
5. Re-Order Your Transfer List
Have you ever been uploading a butt-load of files to your server, but needed to prioritize them?
I was uploading some WordPress files while doing some .htaccess changes while I waited. I didn’t want to wait for everything to finish to see if my .htaccess changes took hold.
What did I do?
Simply drug some files around to reorder them in transfer view. Slick!
I hope you’ve enjoyed these tips and tricks!
