    just guessing, but you select a file, activate dashboard, and drop it on the widget to upload it.

    Do you use the Widget for Transmit much? I use to have it installed years ago but haven't done so on current systems. Guess I really just see less need for FTP uploads overall and when I need to it's not always to the same site and folder which the Widget only gives you access too.

    You make a new widget for each folder you want to upload to. It's ment for quick, frequently used, ftp folders.

    In that case it's be easier to have alias files to drop files on and throw them in the Dock then the hassle of trying to drop a file on a Widget.

    Some people don't like a cluttered dock.

    Sure and others don't like the system resources that Widgets eat up even when not in use.

    i use it for uploading quick pictures I want to share on forums or emails to friends. I have a default "pics" folder on my server, and just drag and drop and post... works for me...

    for major website stuff i use Transmit itself...

    Widgets are like....... a dock on the other side of the lake from where you are standing.

    I like flipping over to my dashboard for my news and weather widgets, but aside of that it's just a hassle to me. Doesn't even feel like part of the OS the way it sits off side and disappears when I click anything.
