Magic Sync UI is confusing...can you clarify some things?

Issue Summary

First Item: In the Magic Sync UI for Pull from WP Engine, the left sidebar says Pull site from: and then my local site immediately under it… as if I am pulling from my local site. This order doesn’t make sense, as I should be pulling from the remote site (WP Engine) TO the local site in the dropdown.

Second Item: In the dialog to Pull from WP Engine, the WP Engine column lists many items (including index.php) as ‘Will be deleted’. Does this mean by pulling a copy of my files I will be deleting them on the remote server?

Troubleshooting Questions

  • Does this happen for all sites in Local, or just one in particular?
  • Are you able to create a new, plain WordPress site in Local and access it in a Browser?
