Renaming Folders, and Recent Locations dropdown

Postby kiboy6 » Thu May 26, 2016 4:46 am

Hi everyone,

I'm a long time user of the TransmissionQTclient, which I use on my Windows PC to control Transmission on my Unix based NAS.

I was excited to see that I can finally replace the unofficial client, with an official Windows version.

However, I haven't fully made the change yet because of two things:

1.) The potentially brilliant new feature of being able to rename folders before downloading starts doesn't seem to work. (I can right click and select "rename" but nothing happens)
2.) There is no "˅" dropdown list of recent locations when adding a new torrent. This feature was in the unofficial builds and is fairly essential, otherwise typing in locations can be very cumbersome!

Anybody else run across these issues / have any idea if they will be fixed in an upcoming offical release?

Thanks so much!

The Windows developer seems to be on a holiday right now - you may have to wait until he returns to active status.

I see that there is an option for "Set Location" and I wonder if it can be used to repoint to the new file? I worry that renaming them individually will break the ability of Transmission to seed properly tho... I've read that one could use the "Verify local data" option on the renamed file and that would enable TX to seed but I'm too afraid to try myself.

If you use "Set Location" within Transmission and retain the associated .resume file, you should have no problem.

Yes, there is no problem at all with "set location.

My question was about the supposed new feature allowing folder renaming at the time of adding the torrent. This was promoted as a new feature in the official windows build - however it doesn't seem to work at all. Anybody have any idea if it has been / could be fixed.

Also, as mentioned, the dropdown list of recent save locations isn't working either....

Is this new Windows build being supported...or are we better off sticking with the unoffial transmissionqt client?

Thanks if anybody can shed light on this :)

Is there a trac ticket for it? You could post there or else open a new ticket. Developer forum activity is nonexistent right now, but a developer occasionally checks in to trac.

Search for existing tickets first and provide detailed repeatable info, if you open, or add to, a ticket.
