    I am trying to script Fetch to open up to a default site and then retrieve files from one of our servers and then put them in the default directory. I've recorded all of these actions with Scripteditor but all that happens when I run this script is that the script stops when the dialoque to click OK appears and it goes no further.
    I have disabled "show sign-on dialogue at startup, but this method just brings me to my shortcuts list of sites.
    Any suggestions on an applescript to allow me to do what I need to do here?

    Could you post your AppleScript (with passwords obscured, of course), so we could take a look? Turning off "show signon dialog at startup" usually fixes this problem.

    I have fetch 3.03 up and running in my new production script...
    The one behaviour of Fetch that I haven't found a way to "fix" is that when doing a
    put into url curdfurl item filestoprocess binary format Raw Data text format Raw Data
    I always have to do a
    Close Transfer Window 1
    afterwards.
    Is there a way to have Fetch automatically close its window and session after a "put
    " command? Does this behaviour change with Fetch 4?

    No, there isn't. I'll take that as a suggestion :).
