Hi!
Here are some feature suggestions.
1) For more effective editing of php scripts it would be useful if on pressing TAB (or Ctrl-TAB) a whole block of selected text would get shifted (currently pressing tab with text selected causes the text to disappear).
2) Line numbers feature in the internal editor.
3) Perform automatic regular backups of selected files and folders from server to local drive.
Thank you very much for this program!

4) Auto-save of files on switching away from the text editor window (on losing window focus). It could be made as an option in settings.

You better use a 3rd party editor if you need fancy features.

More details please.

Will see if more people ask for this.

Details on automatic regular backup feature request.
Perform a silent copy of user-selected files (folders) from remote server to a certain location on the local drive every day (week) or on every application close or on every connection close. If copy successful output nothing, on error - notify.
The reason for this feature is that some hosting providers may unexpectedly delete scripts we upload or they can get lost for some other reasons.
...
And, sorry for suggesting another fancy feature, but it would be highly desired to add automatic beginning-of-line tabulation in the internal editor. Details:
On pressing Enter if the current line has 3 tabs in the beginning (like in nested control structures, such as "if" or "while"), it is desirable that 3 tabs will be automatically added before we start typing the next line.
...
Thank you!

Possible even automatic copy to local dir on any file modification on the remote server (on saving).
(On saving it is being sent to the remote server anyway, so why not update the local copy as well?)

Sorry, there is already a function "Keep the remote directory synchronized", which makes what I'm suggesting unnecessary.
