Fetch and El Capitan by Jim Matthews

Mac OS X Mavericks

Based on our testing to date, we can report that Fetch 5.7.5 is compatible with Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan).

We will continue to test Fetch with El Capitan, and will update this post as necessary. If you run into any issues with Fetch on El Capitan, or any other OS X release for that matter, please contact us.

  • I went to use fetch this am .. the first time since I’ve upgraded to OS X El Capitan. I can access my shortcuts, but once in the folder I want to download files from, the individual files don’t have icons and can’t be downloaded. Same with trying to upload. Any help??

  • Hi jpdeezign,

    I’d like to help figure this out. You should have an email from me about how to gather information that could help me understand what is going wrong, and hopefully find a solution.

  • Wondering if Fetch has been tested with OS 10.11.2. I don’t see that the problem with mpdeezign was resolved.

  • Hi,

    I am using Fetch with 10.11.2 without any problems. But I’ve heard from four users, including jpdeezign, about the issue he describes. It seems to be related to running cleanup software like Onyx. Quitting Fetch and opening it again appears to fix the problem, for a while anyway. I am continuing to investigate.

  • I’m using 5.7.5. I just updated to El Capitan. I edit files in Sublime 2 directly from Fetch. It used to save changes almost immediately. Now I need to wait about 5-10 seconds for a save to occur.
