    first of all, I'm using the newest fetch on OS X.

    one of my clients tends to use LONG filenames, so I was working on dragging the column sizes around. It behaves a bit oddly to begin with, in terms of how it let me grow the columns. I THINK I had to grow the left half of the window to finally get to see the long filenames. Now I'm stuck with a HUGE fetch window. I can't get that side to go smaller again. I ended up hiding the status half of the window, but it's disturbing to not see a response. As I specifically got fetch (rather than using command line ftp) so that I can drag and drop, I need to be able to resize the windows! Help???

    (I'm new to OS X, but have not had problems working with the windows overall)

    The way columns resize is odd. In order to grow a column you have to first shrink one of the other columns to make room.

    But I'm surprised that you can't resize the whole window. You should be able to resize the window the same way you would resize any window.

    If you are still having problems I would recommend sending a screen snapshot to bugs at fetchsoftworks dot com, and I'll take a look.

    Thank you Jim, after messing with it a bit more I realized what the problem was. Somehow I had grown the left half of the window so very large that when I showed both sides, I could no longer see the right edge.

    I was trying to grab the line (like I could with columns) separating the two windows/window elements - what are they called?? which did not work. Hiding the right hand side made it possible for me to drag the window to smaller by the lower corner. Unfortunately, Fetch seems to have gotten mega-window on the brain, I shrink them and then quit, and they come back BIG next time I fire it up again :P But I can function.

    Thank you!

    Fetch remembers the size and position of the last window it closes when you quit. So if you make sure you have one window open when you quit, Fetch should use that size and position for new windows the next time you run Fetch.
