Getting Fetch to Download in GL6 (2 posts)

    I need to download an html file to correct a line and now discover everything downloads in Explorer and not GL (classic) as before. This has happened since I installed OS10.4. (GL FTP quit working a long time ago and now I only use Fetch for ftp.) How can I get Fetch to download so I can re-edit and then upload?

    By "GL" do you mean "Adobe GoLive?"

    You can use the Transfer Options pane of the info window to set the preferred application for a certain kind of file (in this case, HTML files).

    You can find detailed instructions on how to do this in the Changing the application a file opens with topic in Fetch Help (click on the link to read the topic). Use the "Other" menu item as described in that topic to select GoLive classic.

    If this does not do what you want, please let us know.
