Bug - Configuring multiple files when initiating

Post by tmcdanel »

I downloaded a .torrent file that had multiple files in it. The torrent had more than one hundred files, but i only needed one. So i highlighted all of them when i started it, but when i click on the select but to deselect it only deselected one file. I had to individually deselect all the files, one at a time, except the one i wanted.

In Apple standard interfaces, when multiple files are selected, whatever you do to one is normally done to all. I suggest that you use this strategy in Transmission. It would save a lot of time.

In Apple standard interfaces, clicking only applies to the one being clicked, regardless of what's highlighted. Right-click or option click the check box.

Cool. I am wondering what other useful clicks i dont know. I just figured out who to sort torrents by most active after using Transmission for years. Is there some place i could learn this stuff without bother more intelligent people?

Like my Apple Reseller told me when I purchased my computer: Learn by doing! One could add by reading and by scroogling as well, I guess. :)
