    This has probably been asked a million times before, but I am here for the first time. Been using Fetch for years and this problem has always been there. Starting to bother me.

    When I look at my web access logs using Command-L, the scroll bar on the right disappears when the file is larger than about 10 megs. This is small for an access log.

    Is this a bug or is there a workaround?

    That certainly sounds like a bug. My guess is that the scrollbar is limited to 32,000 lines, and you'd hit that limit at 10MB if each line had about 300 characters. I'll file that as a bug to be fixed.

    If you have BBEdit or BBEdit Lite you can use the "Edit with BBEdit" command instead.

    Thanks, Jim!
    I could download the file and open with BBEdit but that is an extra step and time consuming, especially when tracking access patterns (or trying to) in real time. A bug fix would be great.
