Setting Featured Image in WordPress
edited November 2012
I was surprised to run across an app which claims to have this ability. After discussion with the developer they say this feature was added in 3.4 back in June. I did some searching and came up with this:

Does this help?
Thanks, yes this is promising. It still will take some work on my end to support it but this is a good start. Usually the way this works is once the API supports it on WordPress I can put it on my list to try to implement. Bear in mind there are complications for example I need to deal gracefully with the fact that the blog might not be updated to 3.4 yet. Anyway, there is hope now ...
I would really like this feature too. In fact, it is essential. Right now, I have to upload my post via MarsEdit, then go into the WordPress backend and select that image as my featured image. Thanks.
Sorry the app doesn't support this as well as it could yet. In the mean time will you consider trying this plugin:
Apparently it will automatically set the first image in a post to be the featured image. This might work for many of your posts?
There is also another plugin a MarsEdit user came up with and shared in these forums:
That is a little more sophisticated but requires setting up a custom "Style" macro in MarsEdit to work in conjunction with the plugin.
