#2023 new Feature request

monitor local directories for changes (auto-refresh)

Reported by: anonymous Owned by:

Would it be possible to have the local subtreeview
refreshing ever 1 second, because when i create a new
file in the open folder it never appears until i go into a
subfolder and back into the original folder!

Surely there's a way to program this yeah?

You can refresh the local treeview by using "Refresh" from menu or toolbar, or by using F5 or Ctrl+R.

But yes, having FileZilla monitoring the currently selected/visible local directories for changes is quite nice. - This is not implemented yet, though.

FileZilla doesn't have any way to create a new local file. I realise that a native solution isn't easy; in Windows it would involve injecting the Explorer context menu, which is possible as TreeSizeFree offers it, while Apple never saw value in File > New so there's no platform-native concept in OS X at all that I know of.

As such, I always create the file in Explorer and then go back to FileZilla and double-click the local file to edit it. This is one reason why it would be smoother if FileZilla monitored the local directory for changes, something I've always wanted it to do. (I also leave directory comparison on most of the time.)
