Collapsible Folders (3 posts)

    Perhaps I am missing this, but is there any way to get collapsible folders working in fetch?
    We've recently switched over from Interarchy and other than a few peculiar way fetch does things it's been great.

    However, not having collapsible folders in the directory listing is a major slowdown. Students are quite used to being able to see into multiple folders at once (many many folders) and sending groups of files to BBEdit for editing. Having to go in and out of each folder for each file is laborious.

    Hoping I am just missing some setting.

    Thanks very much.

    You aren't missing anything -- Fetch does not support turn-down triangles. I agree that it would make many tasks easier to have them. One workaround is to open separate windows for different folders.

    Since turndowns are mostly an Apple OS feature can a make a polite request for ti to be considered in upcoming releases. I was amazed as just how much we use it and how much slower it made editing large sites where there folder numbers are many.
