Imports shortcuts OSX Catalina (4 posts)

    Hello

    I have upgraded my Mac to OS X Catalina.
    But my shortcuts (saved as .app) won't work. Is there anyway to import those?

    Hi,

    There is a Terminal command that should print out the URL for a droplet shortcut:

    xattr -p com.fetchsoftworks.Fetch.DropletShortcut.DestinationInfo <path to droplet shortcut>

    You can "type" the path to the droplet shortcut by dropping the shortcut on the Terminal window.

    Once you have the URL you can paste it into Fetch's New Connection window. Once you are connected you can save a new droplet shortcut that should work on Catalina.

    I apologize that this process is so cumbersome.

    Thanks,

    Jim Matthews

    Hello Jim.
    I not so good with terminal commands but I have copied your code and pasted my path to the droplet but I get this error: -bash: syntax error near unexpected token `newline'

    The full "code" I have pasted in to Terminal is: xattr -p com.fetchsoftworks.Fetch.DropletShortcut.DestinationInfo </Users/johanlandgren/Documents/Bookmarks/mittmediaprint_material.app>

    Hi,

    I'm sorry that my directions weren't clearer. Here's what you would want to enter in Terminal, all on one line:

    xattr -p com.fetchsoftworks.Fetch.DropletShortcut.DestinationInfo /Users/johanlandgren/Documents/Bookmarks/mittmediaprint_material.app

    I.e. you don't want the <> characters.

    Thanks,
