    I have this problem:
    I want to run my old shortcuts out of Version 4.0.3 on my new Mac (OSX 10.7.2) with Fetch 5.3.1. I´d made a copy out of my old Preferenzes. When I now open it with 5.3.1 the List ist empty. Can somebody help please? Otherwise there are more than 300 shortcuts to rewrite :(
    Thank u!!!

    Fetch 4.0.3 saved shortcuts in a file named "Fetch Shortcuts" in the Preferences folder inside the Library folder. Fetch 5.3.1 keeps shortcuts in a file named com.fetchsoftworks.Fetch.Shortcuts.plist, also in the Preferences folder.

    To recover your Fetch 4.0.3 shortcuts I would recommend the following steps:

    * Quit Fetch
    * Put the "Fetch Shortcuts" file in the Preferences folder
    * Move the com.fetchsoftworks.Fetch.Shortcuts.plist file out of the Preferences folder
    * Run Fetch

    Please let me know if that doesn't work.
