Confused on startup with default shortcut (4 posts)

    I unchecked the "Show New Connection Dialog..." in preferences and selected a default shortcut.

    I was hoping that, upon launching Fetch, this shortcut would automatically be launched, logging me into my sftp server.

    Instead, nothing happens. The transcript window opens but nothing. If I then select my default shortcut from the men it works fine but that is really an unnecessary step, at least in my situation.

    I don't want or need the Connection Dialog because this is a public/private key only connection to ssh. I just want Fetch to automatically put me into my Default Shortcut location on launch.

    There isn't a way to have Fetch automatically go to a certain location every time it is launched, but you can get close to that behavior by opening a shortcut file rather than Fetch itself. Here's how you'd do that:

    1) Connect to your sftp server
    2) Choose Save Droplet Shortcut... from the File menu
    3) Put the Droplet shortcut in some convenient place, and when you want to open Fetch open the Droplet shortcut instead -- it will launch Fetch and tell Fetch to connect to your server

    Please let me know if that does not work for you.

    Thanks,

    Not perfect, but it'll do.

    May I suggest that with the Show New Connection... unchecked and a default Shortcut specified that the next version of Fetch automatically log into that default shortcut.
