Shortcuts won't sort after 5.2 download (3 posts)

    I'm a web designer. Before the 5.2 upgrade I had manually arranged my client's site shortcuts so the newest sites were at the bottom of the shortcuts file. I can't move them since the upgrade. Now they are alphabetical.

    Is there any way to arrange them the way I want?

    We changed the formats of the shortcuts in the more recent versions of Fetch, and unfortunately, a small bug causes the shortcuts to be resorted when they are imported.

    Even more unfortunately, the current Fetch Shortcuts window does not allow you to manually resort the shortcuts. We realize this is an inconvenience, and I apologize for it.

    One possible workaround is to add a number to the beginning of each shortcut's name; assign numbers to the shortcuts in the order you want them to appear. Then the alphabetical sorting of the list will force them to be sorted in numerical order.

    Or, if you only want some to appear at the bottom of the list, put z's in front of their name; put spaces in front of the names of ones you want to appear at the top of the list.

    I realize that neither of those is a very attractive or convenient workaround, and I apologize again that we do not have a better solution at this time. We hope to improve this in a future version of Fetch.

    Thanks. Putting a number in front will fix my problem.
