Automatic decoding feature requests (3 posts)

I'd like to request that there be a way to turn automatic decoding for ALL files on or off. I find it such a pain to have to do turn it off for each filee type, each time I install Fetch:
1. Find all of the types of files on an FTP server I want to change this setting for.
2. Get Info on each of those files.
3. Turn "Automatic Decode" off.
In fact I really have to question whether this feature should be on by default to begin with. If I download whatever.tar.gz I do truly expect to find whatever.tar.gz on my desktop. I do not expect it to already be expanded, and for the original file to be vanished from my desktop. So I'd like to make a second request that you make the default OFF for this feature as well.

Thanks for the feedback. While we believe that most of our users find automatic decoding useful, we're aware that not all of them do. A way to turn off automatic decoding for all files is on our to-do list for a future version of Fetch.
Thanks Scott. Count me as one of the first to turn it off by default on every install of Fetch once you add this feature. ;)
