    Is it possible to have Fetch use GoLive or any other than BBedit as the default text editor ?

    Hi Simon,

    The "Edit" command in Fetch has a specific function - when you edit a file, Fetch opens it in the selected editor application so you can make changes to it, and then when you save the file in the application, it saves your changes back to the server instead of to your local hard drive.

    Only certain applications include support for saving the file back to the server via Fetch, so Fetch only lists those applications as choices for editing applications. GoLive does not support saving the files back to the server via the Fetch "Edit" command, so Fetch does not list it as a choice in the "Edit files like this with" menu.

    There are other text editors besides BBEdit that support saving files back to the server. They are: AlphaX, CSSEdit, Jedit X, mi, Page Spinner, Smultron, Style, SubEthaEdit, Tag, Tex-Edit, TextMate, and TextWrangler. If you have any of those installed, Fetch should list them as choices for the text editor.

    However, you can tell Fetch to open any kind of file in any other application when you download it or double-click on it in Fetch. The difference is that any changes will be saved locally. This may do what you want.

    To do this:

    * Select a file of that type (e.g. select a .html file).
    * Click Get Info.
    * In the Transfer Options section, select "Save and open the file" in "After transferring a file like this" section.
    * Also in the Transfer Options section, choose the application you want (e.g. GoLive) from the "Open files like this with:" menu. If the application you want is not listed, you can choose "Other" to find it.

    Thanks,

    Many thanks for that as the help file seemed only to list BBedit and I didn't fancy shelling out another $199 so problem solved for me :)

    Once again thanks for your help

    You're welcome, Simon. Do you remember which help topic you were reading? We can try to clarify it to say that more than BBEdit is supported.

    Thanks,
