Your best friend for file transfer.Fetch
The Save Droplet Shortcut command creates a droplet shortcut. You can drag files to a droplet shortcut in the Finder or Dock to upload those files, or double-click it to open a remote folder in Fetch.
This command is available as:
- The Save Droplet Shortcut command in the File menu
The Save Droplet Shortcut command is only available when a transfer window is active and no files or a single folder is selected, or when the Fetch Shortcuts window or another shortcut list window is active and a single folder shortcut is selected. Otherwise, when a file or multiple items are selected in a transfer window, the Save Shortcut command will be available instead.
When a folder is selected in the file list, Save Droplet Shortcut creates a droplet shortcut that will upload files dragged to it, or open the selected folder. If no items are selected in the file list, it creates a droplet shortcut that will upload files or open the folder currently being viewed in the transfer window.
When a shortcut is selected in the Fetch Shortcuts window, Save Droplet Shortcut creates a droplet shortcut equivalent to that shortcut — the droplet shortcut will upload files or open the folder referred to by that shortcut.
Once the droplet shortcut is created, just drag files and folders to its icon, and Fetch will open and automatically start uploading the files to the folder represented by the droplet shortcut. If you double-click the droplet shortcut instead, it will open the folder it represents in Fetch, but will not upload anything.
You can choose an upload format for the droplet shortcut to use by selecting a format from the Upload format menu in the Save Droplet Shortcut dialog. All items dropped on this particular droplet shortcut will always be uploaded in that format. Usually you want Automatic, the default choice.
You can also choose to have Fetch quit after an upload started by the droplet shortcut completes by checking the Quit Fetch after uploading checkbox in the Save Droplet Shortcut dialog.
