Load Magnet, then pause (instead of DL`ing contents)

Post by shoobeedoobee » Tue Oct 03, 2017 2:18 am

When you have a Magnet file of a large collection of files and you want only a few of those, then it would be very convenient, if Transmission would download the Magnet and then pause.
The user could then open the list of contents in the torrent on choose which files he wants.

As it is now, you can either pause, but then the Magnet is not downloaded, you don`t see the files and cannot select. Or you download and Transmission immediately starts downloading files.
You can wait until the Magnet is loaded, then manually pause. However some .part files are often created right away. These can occupy a lot of drive space.
