"Alias" Feature (4 posts)

    I have a few hundred shortcuts representing clients for almost 10 years. Sometimes I don't remember what they're site address is (or name, or whatever I might have created the shortcut to reflect).

    So when I make a new shortcut I want to be able to specify one, or maybe even two, aliases for that shortcut so that while the main shortcut can be "www.whatever.com" I can also create an alias (that appears in the shortcut list as perhaps italic) for "Mary J." or "TeaPot Artist"

    Hi,

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    In the meantime, there are a couple of things you can do now in Fetch that might help.

    If you don't like the name Fetch chooses for a shortcut, you can change it. To do this:

    In Fetch 5, select the shortcut in the Fetch Shortcuts window, choose Shortcuts > Edit Shortcut from the menus, and enter a new name in the Name field.

    In Fetch 4, click on the Cancel button in the New Connection dialog, select the shortcut in the Fetch Shortcuts window, choose Customize > Edit Shortcut from the menus, and enter a new name in the Name field.

    You can also duplicate shortcuts, so that you have a copy of the shortcut with the same information, and give the duplicate a new name. The easiest way to do this is to select a shortcut in the Fetch Shortcuts window, choose Edit > Copy, and then Edit > Paste. You will now have a new shortcut with the same information in the original (in Fetch 5, the new shortcut will have the same name, in Fetch 4, the shortcut may have a different name). Rename one of them using the steps I described above.

    Please let us know if these suggestions help.

    Thanks,

    (already do those..it's easy and useful in fetch to edit a shortcut. The issue is remembering it.)

    So to that I also say...when I make a new shortcut I'd like to be able to save it to disk in the same action...maybe a "Save to disk" checkbox giving me the save dialog after OK.
