How the hell do you interrupt a download in Sublime FTP???!!! Any obvious hot key such as Ctrl+C doesn't work, and there's not a word about how to interrupt an operation in the docs of Sublime FTP.

    check in the menu for "sftp cancel" (via ctrl+shift+p) or a little ugly cancel button in the bottom right, that would be my guess.

    nevermind I was wrong:

    CancelWin/Linux: ctrl+alt+u+x
    OS X: ctrl+cmd+u+x
    Stop the current SFTP/FTP server activity (connection, upload or download)

    Oh, there it is, at the bottom of the page. I was looking for "interrupt". Not a very intuitive hot key, which can also be said about Sublime FTP in all. It's taken me far too long to get started with it so I'm looking into something that is easier to use, maybe brackets?

    Sublime and vscode are imho the only most supported editors out there, if ftp is bugging you then use winscp and setup sublime or whatever as the editor 😉

    @JoshBent With winscp, is it possible to sort of integrate the editor? What I'm trying to achieve is an environment like the one in Notepad++ with FTP but without the bugginess.

    @TerriToniAX none of the integrated solutions I tried anywhere actually work as great as winscp, but you can ofcourse use the remote map function of sublime sftp eliminating most problems syncing usually has.

    @JoshBent I thought I had it figured out in Sublime, but obviously I hadn't. Never managed to do anything but download, too difficult! Tried Brackets now and with the Site Admin plugin I'm already up and running! :) That took me a few minutes instead of hours and hours in vain with Sublime.

    @TerriToniAX I might give brackets a go tomorrow to check just that out, but I still doubt they fixed all the things I hated back then about it 😅

    OK, maybe 3 hours, but still. That's a long time for accomplishing nothing. I'm sure Sublime is a great source editor for developing locally, but it simply won't do for my web projects where I'm working in remote folders.

    @JoshBent You've already tried Brackets before? When was that and what was it that you hated about it?

    OK, I can already see one (minor) thing I don't like about Brackets. The quick start guide doesn't close when clicking x.

    What is worse is that it doesn't work anymore! When I first set up Site Manager with the default folder in Samples, I could see my remote folder tree. Fantastic! But now that I set up a folder of my own, nothing happens. Zip. And the server settings are correct, test button lights up green. What the actual fuck?! I think I'm going back to Notepad++ after all. Buggy, instable but not as buggy as this Brackets plugin. I think that an editor that claims to "understand the web" and obviously is intended for web development, seriously ought to have FTP support built in! These third-party plugins suck big time.

    @TerriToniAX lol I see I dont even have to give brackets a try anymore

    @JoshBent Yup, that's a correct conclusion :D I went back to Notepad++ and am finally productive again. Wasted too much of my precious sparetime trying to replace it. Despite some really annoying bugs, I can't really find any better alternative.
