Can't see my hidden files on my web-server. I though we used to be able to see and edit. What went wrong?

Hi Mike,
Under View select "View Hidden Files".:)
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

This is a site I built for my work.(RSD)
This is a site I built for use in my job.(HTML Editor)
This is my personal site used for testing and as an easy way to share photos.(RLM imported to RSD)

Is it possible that my web parent directory does not contain any hidden files including .htaccess? even after clicking Show Hidden Files using Direct FTP?

Possibly. Have you uploaded an .htaccess file? It doesn't appear just 'out of the blue'. ;)

This site was made before we were able to create components through the app:
Component sharing for RFF, RBB, RSD and SD: https://eikweb.com/sharing/
My work in progress right now:
Components for the same as above + HTML Editor: https://mock-up.coffeecup.com
