Why to use FTP client

First of all you can backup your site–for just in case or to start uploading assets like PDF, images, text or video files which can be embedded or provided for download from your site.

How to link/embed uploaded file

You can link, embed or make your files downloadable using Add or filter links in Muse or Object > Insert HTML. When linking or embedding file you do not need to type full address. To embed PDF file Cool_Photo_Edges_Actions_Help.pdf (which is in Assets folder) on my page, I can use Insert HTML option and to paste following code: <embed height="780" src="/assets/Cool_Photo_Edges_Actions_Help.pdf" width="600"></embed>. Before embedding files you should check browser compatibility and to preview pages in different browsers what is recommended and best available method.
