    Hey Jim,

    Yay, "Edit new text file" works again!
    (When I close the new file without saving in BBEdit, I get the error below.)

    Did you work on the bug of the "Can't find file" error when trying to edit a file in BBE as well?

    Thanx,
    Cheers from snowy Germany,

    "BBEdit was not permitted to send a save notification
    This condition will occur if you previously clicked “Don’t Allow” to the system prompt requesting that you allow BBEdit to control the application from which you used an “Edit in BBEdit” command.
    Click the help button in this alert to go to a page on our web site with detailed information and instructions on how to resolve this."

    Hi,

    When you get that error from BBEdit please do click on the help button to go to the web site, and follow the
    instructions there. That should resolve the problem.

    I have not worked on the file not found bug, so I don't have any news to report there.

    Thanks,

    Hey,
    I clicked BBEs help button and found that Fetch was already listed and checked in BBE's macOS settings … still got the error and could not save. ( I have not yet upgraded to BBE 13.5 though.)

    Best,

    The trial period works, i can't continue using the beta after two weeks. lol
    But it has a problem when the prompt is lauched. When you click on 'quit', the program keeps open, you have to force quit. (quit is grayed in Fetch menu, and doesn't work in the context menu on the dock icon.)

    i would continue reporting, but alas...

    thx anyway, you have a great app

    Hi io,

    Thanks for reporting this. I tried to reproduce the problem, but wasn't able to. Fetch 5.8.1 did quit for me when I clicked the Quit button, although it did take a few seconds.

    Thanks,

    Thank you for fixing the auto-opening of the transcript window. :-)

    Please may I nudge the dirty-text problem, mentioned in post 890668.
    • The text showing how much has been uploaded is messy if it is shorter than previous text. It doesn’t properly clean away the previous text. Small screen grab at http://www.jdawiseman.com/2019/20191210_Fetch_messy_text.png

    Hi Jim,

    without doing anything could use fetch again, for another trial period. The case is that the quit btn is greyed and can't use it, only 'enter license' and 'purchase' btn. Contextual doesn't work either. Had to force quit. And tried to run it after but runs only partially (opens the connection window but doesn't connect). And quit doesn't work. Forced it again.

    Hope it helps

    Are you seeing this problem each time you open Fetch? If so could you contact me at https://fetchsoftworks.com/fetch/feedback so I can gather more information?

    Thanks,
