Set File/Folder attributes on right-click (3 posts)

    It would be nice if Fetch could offer right-click Set File/Folder permissions in addition to Get Info command - as do FileZilla and CuteFTP.

    The problem with Get Info is - if you are accessing a folder with say 2000 files in it, it takes a significant amount of time before you can edit the permissions in the Get Info window.

    Thanks for the suggestion and feedback. We will consider it when developing future versions of Fetch.

    There is a workaround for the current version of Fetch.

    The delay when opening the info window is because Fetch is calculating the size of all the files and folders inside the folder, and we recognize that can take time if the folder has lots of files in it.

    If you hold down the Option key while choosing Get Info, Fetch will not calculate the size of the stuff inside the folder, and the info window will open immediately without delay.
