Droplet Shortcut support on multi-user system for managed user (2 posts)

    Hi, I'm using Fetch on WUSB's digital editing computer as a way for staffers to ftp their produced shows to the Uni's Podcast Server.

    In typical Mac form, I'm trying to make things as easy as possible for the user. The easiest to me seems to be to have a Droplet Shortcut in the sidebar and the Dock.

    Anyway, when I make the Droplet Shortcut in the Editing user account, that account doesn't have access to use it. When I go to the Admin account to give access, or create a new Droplet Shortcut and give access to the Editing user, I get a message saying that the Droplet Shortcut does not work with the limitations I have set. (Actually, it does not say 'Droplet Shortcut' but calls it what I named it.)

    Does the Droplet Shortcut feature not work for a managed user?

    What staffers used pre Fetch 5.2 is the widget. But dragging and dropping the file onto an icon in the dock or sidebar is a lot easier than dragging it, pressing F12, and dropping it on the bone.

    any help appreciated

    Does it work to put the droplet shortcut in the Applications folder (or wherever Fetch is installed)?

    If not I'd be interested to see a screenshot of the error. You can email it to bugs at fetchsoftworks dot com.
