    I'm experiencing two unsolved Fetch mysteries, and thought I'd run them by you:

    1.) when I "Get" a file -- or a bunch of files -- Fetch will automatically open/boot the PDFs. This can be kind of scary if the directory that I'm transferring contains 50 or so PDFs. Is there somewhere I can make a Preferences or Options adjustment?

    2.) This one seems less straightforward: when transferring image files, they don't seem to work. For example:
    http://www.composing.org/files/

    Or: http://www.composing.org/wall/ (where 2 of 3 worked).

    Because I'm making the transition from WS_FTP (PC) to Fetch and MAC, I'm wondering if I've missed some crucial step.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    You can control whether Fetch will pass a downloaded file to another application by choosing "Post-processing..." from the Customize menu and enabling, disabling or changing the items in that list. It sounds like you should disable the PDF entry.

    Those image files are empty. Did you get an error when you uploaded them? Do you have Norton Personal Firewall or Norton Internet Security installed, and are you running OS X?

    Thanks,

    Thanks, Jim -- I really appreciate the help.

    The first one worked: it's disabled now. Thank you. On the 2nd one: yes, yes, and yes -- firewall, Norton and OSX.

    Shall I turn some things off there, too? They can affect uploading images?

    Based on our experience with other users I'd suggest that you remove the "NortonPrivacyControl" folder from the StartupItems folder of the Library folder in their home directory. Let me know if that does not help.

    Thanks,
