#2859 closed Enhancement (invalid)

Set per torrent speed/ratio limits from the torrent right-click menu

Reported by: thesam Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: GTK+ Client Version: 1.83
Severity: Minor Keywords:


I think it would be useful to be able to access the speed and ratio limits directly from the right-click menu in the GUI when right-clicking on a torrent in the list. As it is now, you need to right-click, then choose "Properties", then choose "Options" to access the limits. If you do this often, it adds up to a lot of clicking :)

There is already a menu in the bottom left corner which does exactly what I'm thinking of, except it does it globally instead of on a per torrent basis.

(I'm sorry if this has been suggested before, I didn't find it when looking through old tickets)

  • Component changed from Transmission to GTK+ Client
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Version changed from 1.83+ to 1.83

Hi thesam, thanks for the suggestion!

However a method with fewer clicks already exists: to set the limits of a group of torrents you can select them all as a batch, then go to Properties > Options to set the entire set of torrent's properties.

You can do use this to assign a set of torrents a seed ratio, priority, etc etc... so in addition to using fewer mouse clicks, it's also more flexible than a cascading menu.

I hope this helps!

Hi again,

That does help when changing the settings for multiple torrents, thanks! But I still think too many clicks are required when changing just one torrent. Of course it's a matter of personal taste, but I just thought I'd suggest it. :)
