Tried dragging a file from a tree in Cyberduck to a project in Aperture... the temp-file was created and then Aperture tried to open it... LONG before the download was completed.

(I'm not a developer, maybe you can't work around this delay due to OS constraints, but I thought it was worth a report.)

Also note that remote editing will not work this way. You have to explicitly choose Edit to open a file in a external editor for editing.

Some applications will read the file again when it has changed on the file system. Therefore for these this doesn't pose a problem. I cannot fix this without a terrible lag during the drag and drop operation that freezes the interface while the transfer is in progress due to the limitation of the drag and drop API in Cocoa.

As of 19832b8 remote editing is possible by dragging the file to the application icon in Dock.app.
