Cmd + J (Edit New File...) No Longer Working in v 5.8.1 (3 posts)

    With the recent release, there is a bug for the following function:

    Remote > Edit New Text File...
    (when editing a file that you don't select)

    This works if you open a new connection and go directly to the Initial Folder. But as soon as you navigate to a new folder and go to that feature (or hit Cmd + J) it just gives you the "Edit With" option and opens a new cloned Fetch window of that same directory. If you click "Edit" then it opens one of the files in the list for editing, which seems to be random. However, at that point, you can go back to that new cloned window to use the function, but only after that new cloned window is open. So you have to go through these steps if you want to create a new file.

    By the way, thank you so much for adding the Find function back in, but this one is something I actually use more than the Find feature.

    I'm all too familiar with the introduction of one feature creating a bug in another feature.

    Using: Mac OS Catalina 10.15.4 (19E266)
    Fetch Version 5.8.1 (5K1217, Web Store)

    Please let me know if you need any more information.

    Thanks for reporting this bug. I will try to figure out what the problem is, and if there is a temporary workaround.
