#216 closed Defect (fixed)

adding a duplicate torrent

Reported by: jah Owned by: somebody

Description

If you add a torrent file which is already in the list, rather than just not letting you do it, T should bring up a dialogue box or some other notification indicating that the torrent has already been added. For drag and dropped torrents, perhaps the new snazzy fade thing could show this message, rather than indicating torrent info (at the moment, it doesn't do anything at all).

Sometimes you may not realise that you are adding a dupe as torrent files can have different names (even though they have the same hash), and it isn't that clear that the reason T is 'not working' is because you are trying to add a dupe.

Perhaps as an added bonus, after the notification has been displayed/clicked though, perhaps the relevant torrent in T is automatically selected, so there is no confusion?

I second this request. Transmission should really do something to inform user about the dupe. I think there's not even a message in the console.
