FTP local and remote files window, an obsessive-compulsive question

The FTP window shows the remote files on the left.

Filezilla and for many other situations I keep the local stuff (or the original stuff) on the left.
Is this possible in Dreamweaver CS6 FTP?

@Gene5E4F,

As an update, it looks like I may have lied (unknowingly).  I don't know if this works in legacy Creative Suite 6 or not but in latest DW CC there is an option in Preferences > Site settings to switch sides.  It is possible to have Local site on left and Remote server on right.  See screenshot.

Hope that helps.

I haven't used CS6 in over 10 years.  But modern DW CC 2022 does not allow Expanded Files Panels to swap places.  Remote Server is permanently displayed on the left side; Local Site is on the right. 

 

Dedicated S/FTP clients like FileZilla and WS_FTP Pro use the reverse but it's never posed any problem for me.  Different tools have different interfaces. 

 

DW is primarily a code editor with some file management tools added for convenience.
