    is it possible to open a mirror saved to a file (with "Mirror automatically when opened" checked) for editing?

    Hi,

    The usual way to edit a Mirror document would be to open it, change the settings, and then save the new settings to a new Mirror document. Does that work for you?

    Thanks,

    When I open it, because I've selected "Mirror automatically when opened", it attempts to execute. I just want to be able to modify its settings. My server has moved and the shortcut it references is no longer valid. If it is simply referencing a shortcut, and edits to the shortcut affect the mirror document, then I have nothing to worry about. If, on the other hand, as I suspect it does, it copies the values from the shortcut at the time the mirror is defined, then I have to either create a new one, or edit the existing. It may be easier just to create a new document.

    Hi,

    You could try editing the file in a text editor like BBEdit, if only to turn off the "Mirror automatically when opened" option. Or you could just create a new document.

    Thanks,

    That's great. Thanks. I didn't realize they were POT files. Easy peasy.
