    I used to be able to search a directory in Fetch using Command-F, which is the Find command in the Edit menu. This command is still there but is always grayed out. The keyboard shortcut no longer works. This feature apparently disappeared with the update to version 5.8.

    Hi,

    That's correct, that feature is not available in Fetch 5.8. I hope to restore it in a future update.

    Thanks,

    This is crazy. No find feature? Font size so small I can't read anything? What is going on with my favorite FTP app? FIx ASAP please!!

    Hi Bummed out User,

    I had to rewrite all of Fetch's user interface code in order for it to run on macOS 10.15. When 10.15 came out last fall there were some features I hadn't managed to rewrite, most notably AppleScript/Automator support, the Find command, and Set Font and Size. I had to choose between releasing what I had, or waiting until I finished those features, leaving 10.15 users with no way to run Fetch in the meantime. I chose to release what I had as Fetch 5.8, and I'm now working on those missing features, starting with Find.

    Thanks for your patience,

    I am the person who started this thread, and I want you to know that I completely understand the situation. I appreciate both your industry and your candor.

    As a software developer, I have faced exactly the same issue, needing to completely rewrite several applications in order to meet Apple's new requirements with macOS Catalina.

    Thank you, so much, for what you have been providing us!

    Hello, I’d like to be alerted about this Post also once you are successful with adding the Find Command back into the App. I've been a Fetch user for many years and I was very happy when you released this new version for 64-bit machines. My issue is the same as the others here. My Directories have a lot of Files and Picts which can be very time consuming when locating files, especially when you need to find multiple files that share a same word. I would really appreciate it if you could post a target date to give me an approximate completion date.
    Thanks, Walt

    Hi,

    I don't have a target date to share, but restoring the Find command is my top priority for the next Fetch release.

    Thanks,

    Thank you, Jim! My own company is going through this same type of issue with one of our products, scrambling to get every feature rewritten for 64-bit Mac. I feel your pain and appreciate your effort.
