how to import transmit favorites (link in fetch help not working) (4 posts)

    I have found a transmit favorites file in an older backup containing some shortcuts I would like to import into fetch.
    the fetch help only offers a link which is not working here - what can I do?

    Fetch Icon Fetch Help > Using Fetch > Importing Transmit favorites
    You can import your favorites from Transmit into Fetch using the link below. Your Transmit favorites will appear in the Fetch Shortcuts window.

    Import my Transmit favorites for me (<<<< THIS IS THE LINK WHICH IS NOT WORKING)

    If you do not have any Fetch shortcuts the first time you open Fetch 5.7, Fetch will automatically try to import your Transmit favorites.

    Transmit favorites that use a connection type not supported by Fetch (such as WebDAV) will not be imported.

    Hi,

    Could you send the favorites file to bugs@fetchsoftworks.com ? I'll see if I can figure out what the problem is.

    Thanks,

    the problem is - as far as i understand it correctly: i don´t use transmit anymore and therefore do not have the shortcuts file placed in the default location within the user library...
    I assume that the link from the help menu checks for transmit shortcuts within the user library or so.. (?)
    the question is: where can I place the file so that fetch detects it? OR how can I force fetch to import the file from a different location?

    Hi,

    Fetch looks for the com.panic.Transmit.plist file in the ~/Library/Preferences folder. Note that Fetch can only import Transmit 3 favorites; it can't import favorites from Transmit 4.

    Thanks,
