I've just updated to 2018.1 and unless I've gone mad, I could swear that in 2017 you could right click on an open file (i.e. in the text editor bit) and the deployment menu would be there so you could upload it to a configured server. Likewise you could right click on a file and get to the deploy menu from there too.
However in 2018, that menu option appears to have gone and you have to click through the main menu instead.
Was this change by design or accident, as I for one used it a lot and its a pain having to navigate through the main menu when it used to be a single click.
