    Is there any way to rename a file while doing a server-to-server transfer? I'm accustomed to the way Fetch (at least v3) gives me a dialog box when I do a PUT so that I can rename the file and pick the transfer type. Is there something similar for server-to-server transfers?

    No, because the server-to-server user interface is drag-and-drop (rather than pressing a button) there's no opportunity to rename the file along the way. You can rename the file before transferring (but I can understand why that might not be desirable, if you then have to rename it back).

    Thanks for the feedback,

    On a normal put, there's a dialog after selecting the file to verify the transfer type and possibly rename the destination file. Is there a reason this same dialog can't appear after dropping a file? I realize that some might find it inconvenient, so it would need to be optional -- perhaps control-drag or something like that (if that isn't too Windowsy -- that's exactly what a Windows application would do ;-).

    That's a good suggestion; I'll add it to my list.

    Thanks,
