Filtering files for opening with FTP profiles

I am connected to FTP profiles which contain several thousands files each. Is it possible, during the connection process, to filter by name (or part of it) only those files you want to exctract/open?

My opinion: thousands of files in one directory is poor file management; if you are in control of the server and file arrangement, I would highly recommend re-structuring so that no single directory on the FTP server has more than 100 or so files, if at all possible, arranged in some meaningful structure. If you are not in charge of the server, then talk to whoever is.
That said, on to the technical issue: no, as far as I’ve ever seen, the NppFTP plugin does not have a feature to filter its directory listing. You can use the Plugins > NppFTP > About dialog to click on Visit NppFTP Site, and then click on New Issue, and use that interface to request that NppFTP add a “filter files” or similar option
