Using linked folder navigation

In some situations, such as maintaining a web site, you may have an identical folder hierarchy in both of Transmit’s local and remote file browsers.

If linked folder navigation is enabled, when you change directory in one file browser, Transmit will attempt to change to the same directory in the other file browser. As long as both browsers follow the same hierarchy, your current local and remote paths will mirror each other. j

To enable linked folder navigation, choose Go > Link Folder Navigation, or click the button in the toolbar.

If you enter a folder in one file browser that doesn’t exist on the other, linked folder navigation will be temporarily suspended, until you return to a folder that exists in both browsers.

Using the path bar

The path bar appears at the top of each file browser in Transmit.

Transmit 5 path bar.

Each segment of the path bar represents a component folder of the file browser’s current path. You can return to any higher level folder by clicking its name.

The rightmost segment of the path bar represents the file browser’s current folder. Clicking it opens a popup menu showing all enclosing folders of the current folder. Choose one to go directly to that folder.

The button on the far left of the path bar switches between the file browser and the connection panel.

The button on the far right of the path bar displays the file browser view options.

The path bar for the currently focused file browser will display the current working directory in blue text.
