Alphabetical File List

Post by Nonja » Thu May 20, 2010 1:44 pm

i did a couple quick searches.. but this has not been asked for?

the file list on torrent load.. and when reviewing downloading torrents..
can they PLEASE be made alphabetical instead of random?

when it contains one or two files, its no big deal...
but when one contains around two hundred and you're trying to prune half of them out, it can be a pain

an eventual search/filter box to go with that (with an "invert" option or understanding of minus signs) would be amazingly useful

but understandable if its not added..

What GUI are you using? This already exists in the GTK+ and Qt versions of Transmission.

Snow leopard. I didn't realize there was a major difference.

If you mention a checkbox I missed.. That would be amazingly great as well

alphatecial filelist sorting is already there, if that is what you are looking for Nonja? and you are able to invert each type of sort.

go to the view menue. there go to "sort transfer by" and then to e.g. "alphabetical". at the bottom there is the point "reverse sort order". guess that might be everything you are looking for.

best regards

no not the torrent list..i meant the file inspecter list..

double click on a torrent and the inspector pops up.. clicking the file tab gives a list of all containing files

it's usual for the files in a torrent to be in alphabetical order anyway, but occasionally (ie in some torrents) they're not.

Is there no further update on this? I didn't notice this until just now, but 'hippy dave' is correct — although file sorting in the Inspector is USUALLY alphabetical, it apparently is not always so. I've attached an example — the full list appears as below:

101 & 102
114
103
115
112
116
106
110
113
108
109
111
104
105
107

As you can tell, it's obviously not alphabetical. I do note that it appears to be in descending order of file size, but i can't tell if this is a coincidence or not — as mentioned before, it's USUALLY alphabetical, so i don't really have anything to compare to.

It would be really nice if someone could look into this.
