Does Fetch have a search feature?? (4 posts)

    I have a very complicated file directory, and I didn't set it up myself, I've been told to locate a specific file with a specific name within the directory that I've accessed via Fetch. However, it took me a while jumping all around to locate the file, is there a way to search these directories that I've accessed via Fetch for specific files by name?? Thanks!

    You can search for a file in the currently displayed folder by choosing Find in the Edit menu. Unfortunately there's no command to search through nested folders in search of a file.

    Thanks,

    Thanks, this feature ends up being the most important feature we need right now.. because we need to find files within some projects that were previously built by other people..

    Thanks for that feedback. I would use Automator to dump the URLs of all the files and folders, and keep that list in a text editor where you can search for files. That wouldn't be as easy as a built-in search feature, but might help. Let me know if you'd like assistance doing that.

    Thanks,
