Description

This is the software that I have been longing for a long time! I have been using Dokan. But Dokan has some glitches so that I cannot use it reliably for developing programs. Many thanks to the authors!

The only function that I found missing is to create new files by right clicking on the margin of the file explorer.

Do you get the New > menu at all? If you do, does it just fail to create the new file? Do you get an error message. What version of Windows does this happen on?

I don't get the "New >" popup menu at all. I am using Windows 7 Starter.
BTW, if I mount the SSHFS with my linux system through nautilus, there is no problem reading/writing the file system.

There's a ticket for providing a function to create new folders (???) but that one suggests a button. In order to provide true seamless integration, we need to provide as many common Windows Explorer features as possible. The "New" context menu is one such feature. We need that not only for new files, but for directories and shortcuts too.

...changed ticket title accordingly. Hope you don't mind.

Of course not! Thank you for taking care of this functionality.
