Inserting hyperlinks to FTP addresses:
An FTP hyperlink should start with 'ftp://' . This is to tell TreePad that the link points to an FTP resource, and that the default FTP program needs to be started upon hyperlink activation.
Just type in the hyperlink (including 'ftp://' and the square brackets).
You can also use copy/paste from an external program after which you need to add the square brackets.
