    In version 4.0b7, when I upload multiple files, the default is to Open files, rather than add then, so I have to click "Add" with the mouse for each file I want to add (or select multiple files and then click Add).

    But in previous version of Fetch 3.03, to upload multiple files, I could use the return key and the arrow keys to select files and add them to the list to be uploaded. This was quick and convenient when I wanted to add a few files.

    So I would prefer to have Add be the default button that the return key will activate, at least when the item selected is a file, and maybe have the Open button as the default when the item selected is a folder.

    Also, the "Add all" button appears to be missing, and this is a big help that I would like to see included, and it would be nice if in this dialog command-A would activate that button.

    Finally, I would like to have a command-key shortcut for the Done button, so that I can select all of my files and commence the upload from the keyboard without being forced to use the mouse.

    Thanks for the good feedback. The Navigation Services file-picking dialog is not as easy to customize as the previous ones, and so it's been harder to create the interface Fetch users are used to. I should note that Cmd-A should work to select all the currently visible files (which you can then add by pressing the Add button). I will see if I can make this better, but it's likely that any change will come after 4.0 is released.
