Does Fetch 5.6 modify text files? (3 posts)

    I was running Fetch 4 for a long time and recently updated to 5.6. Ever since I upgraded, I have had issues posting text files to an external site. The files get posted to an external site and scripts are run on the text files and returned back to me. Since I have upgraded, some of the characters are coming back incorrectly.
    Specifically the characters listed below I believe are being modified in some way by Fetch and are causing the issue because the only thing that has changed in my process is upgrading Fetch. I wanted to see if anyone knew if there was a setting that could be adjusted to resolve the issue and if there's something that would affect these characters specifically?

    Fetch 4 had a feature that would translate text file characters between the Mac and ISO Latin1 character sets. Fetch 5 does not have this feature. So it could be that you were depending on this conversion, and now it is no longer happening. Does that fit with what you are seeing?

    It could be, let me try to send using another FTP application and see if we get the same result as Fetch 5. If so, then we must be expecting some type of conversion within Fetch 4. I will test it out. Thanks for the reply!
