#1428 closed Bug (worksforme)

main window size / torrent list becomes unruly with many torrents

Reported by: spaznode Owned by: livings124
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Mac Client Version: 1.34+
Severity: Normal Keywords:


A small annoyance for me personally with the UI is the fact that the main window isn't resizable via the standard OS resize handle for whatever OS you are using it on (os x for me).

With a very large list of torrents (even with minimal view enabled) the window feels bulky and obtrusive without being resizable. To add to the pain the window seems to try and automatically make the vertical size equal to the available viewport/dimensions of the monitor it's being viewed in but doesn't take in to account the placement of the window along the y axis such that you end up having a lot of torrents hidden out of view if you don't have the app positioned flush with the top of the screen.

I don't really see the reasoning behind having resize disabled for the height of the window pane.

Also, I think the "minimal view" could be made more minimal somehow. For instance, the fully green progress bars don't appear to provide enough value to justify taking up an entire row once a file has been fully received. You might even be able to get away with having them display to the left of the ratio / ul stats section on the right ? (obviously would have to be much smaller). I don't know, just thinking out loud.

Please see attached screenshot for example of what I'm talking about. UI built from current svn trunk as of yesterday evening-ish.

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

sounds to me like you set the window to auto-size in the general preferences.
