Dragging multiple files to a shortcut (9 posts)

    It used to be that if multiple files were dragged to a shortcut, all would be uploaded. Recently that has stopped being true, and only the first is uploaded. Please could the previous behaviour be restored.

    Mac OS X 10.9.3; Fetch 5.7.3 (5H683, Web Store).

    PS: the Fetch version number should be select-and-copyable, rather than merely retypeable.

    Hi,

    That's odd. When I drag multiple items to a shortcut they are all uploaded. Could you try again, and if it still isn't working let me know how many files you are dragging, and whether you are dragging to a shortcut in a shortcut list window in Fetch, or dragging to a droplet shortcut in the Finder?

    Thanks,

    Typically two to five files, dragged to a droplet shortcut in the Finder. More accurately, a droplet shortcut saved to the Finder, that shortcut then having been put in the Finder windows’ Sidebar. Files are dragged onto that Sidebar item.

    I just added a droplet shortcut to my Finder sidebar, and then dragged 3 files to it; all 3 were uploaded. I'm running 10.9.3 also.

    I would try saving a new droplet shortcut and adding it to sidebar, to see if that helps.

    I’m not quite sure when the problem started, but it might have been a week or two ago. During which time Fetch has been closed and re-opened multiple times, and indeed the machine completely rebooted multiple times.

    Now testing again, the problem is intermittent. I will try to isolate when it happens.

    Well, the problem has stopped. Now works for me.
