    Okay, here's what I don't understand. I'm trying to copy an image into a newsletter program. If I chose, "Copy fetch address" for an image that is showing up on the server, the image copies as The location of the image I have to type into the newsletter builder program in order for it to find the image on the server is:

    As you can see it's close, but that doesn't work on the, instead of my having to either copy the "http" line and then backspace backspace delete then enter the photo1, photo 2, photo 3.jpg, is there a way to use "Copy fetch address" by highlighting the image name, using "copy fetch address," then pasting into the URL Name? window in the Newsletter builder? What am I missing? THanks. PS Working on a MacBookPro.

    Hi Gary,

    You're correct, "Copy Fetch Address" results in a URL that often isn't useful in other contexts. That's why we have the Fetch WebView feature, which lets you set up a correspondence between the location of your files in Fetch and the address of the webpage they are part of, so that you can easily copy the web addresses (instead of the Fetch address) of those files - it sounds like that's exactly what you're looking for.

    You need to do an initial configuration of WebView, but once you do, the "Copy Fetch Address" command will be replaced by "Copy Web Address" and you should get the address you want when copying.

    Please see the setting up WebView or WebView help topics for more information, and let us know if you have further questions.
