Comment (by chris deeming):

 Ok. When you put it like that, I guess the change is reasonable.

 No offense taken at the closing of the ticket. It's just all too often
 people out there like to get tickets out of the door with the minimum
 amount of work possible, but I see that isn't happening here.

 Thank you for the workaround. I will try it and report back.

 Can I make a simple change request that perhaps solves the problem
 satisfactorily for both parties? Could the hidden setting above be made a
 configurable option in Preferences? I have to say, I've been using
 Cyberduck extensively and it works perfectly. Before the temporary
 filename feature, I have never once experienced any issues relating to
 saving files from an external editor.

 I can understand the reasons for this feature, though, and would be happy
 for it to be on by default, as long as I can understand the risks and turn
 it off.

 I have asked XenForo if they will consider any fixes, but this is
 unlikely. As much as their template system do not adhere to WebDAV
 standards, it isn't feasible, necessarily, to expect them to. Primarily
 templates are edited directly from the Admin CP. WebDAV is a functionality
 for power users, but it was by no means written solely for WebDAV

 But that helps neither of us :)

 I will try that workaround now, thank you so much for taking the time to
 assist further with the issue.
