    I have a problem using Fetch's feature
    'Edit with GraphicConverter" on gif images. Fetch chokes with: "The image editing application (GraphicConverter) could not be found". The problem persists with both GC 4.1 and 4.2 (German Version) installed in /Volumes/Applications/Graphic/GraphicConverter DE/GraphicConverter.app

    BBedit beeing installed in the same location works just fine.

    Has anybody found a solution to this Problem? Can the location of GC be hardcoded / set up in any way?

    TIA

    Do you see the problem if GraphicConverter is already running?

    Thanks for the report,

    Thanks. I'll try to figure this out and fix it in the next release.

    I am having a similar problem, but with BBEdit. I installed BBEdit by copying over from another computer, instead of an actual instal (I don't have Classic installed and so can't use my CD). Now Fetch can't find it. This never happened before, so I'm guessing that they are related. Panic's Transmit can find BBEdit though, so I don't know - but I'd rather use Ftech. Anyone have any ideas?

    I too am having the same problem with both BBedit and GrafficConverter. I recently upgraded to MacOSX (which might be the problem) and moved Fetch and BBedit to a new folder in the applications directory (they are both OSx compatible). Whereas before Fetch would find BBedit, now it will not. I have tried relocating BBedit to within Fetch same level dir as Fetch etc. with no luck.

    Any fixes? A nice addition to future versions of Fetch would be to be able to manually locate and designate BBEdit if something like this occured.

    Thanks for the reports and suggestions. One user reported that this problem when away when he reinstalled BBEdit. Another suggestion is to remove these files from the Library/Preferences folder in your home directory:

    .LSClaimedTypes_Backup
    .LSSchemes_Backup
    .LSApplications_Backup
    LSSchemes
    LSApplications
    LSClaimedTypes

    And then log out and log in.

    Doing that is more-or-less the OS X equivalent of rebuilding the desktop on previous versions of Mac OS. But I would recommend keeping those files around somewhere in case there are problems and you need to restore them.

    Thanks,

    Unfortunately, I've done both these suggestions now. Deleted BBedit and reinstalled and deleted the files mentioned and it still can't find BBedit.

    :()

    I've reverted to using BBedit to ftp to my scripts and pages to make small edits. I liked being able to do it with fetch, but if these didn't work, I'm not sure what will.

    I have tried everything to get Fetch to find my BBEdit program. I guess what Fetch needs to fix this is a way to tell Fetch where BBEdit is in the Preferences. That's all it would take. :)
