#3773 assigned Bug

Settings for multi-selected torrents are unclear.

Reported by: brgnm Owned by: mike.dld
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Qt Client Version: 2.12
Severity: Normal Keywords:


example: two torrents are selected, with different priorities, one has 'honor limits' unchecked, and they have different individual limits set. The checkbox appears unchecked if it is unchecked for any selected torrent. if you want all unchecked, it must be clicked twice, though there is no visible change. The priority box on the other hand, shows no value, good, but it is still not clear if setting it will cause all selected torrents to have the others options set as shown. When some torrents have a differing numeric option, only one is shown, with no indication that some differ. typing the same value would cause a possibly unintended change. Showing the high and low values if there are a range might be nice.

in short, checkboxes and text boxes should indicate 'multiple values', as drop-down boxes do, and it should be more clear when any change has actually been submitted.

Mac Client seems to get this right in the Inspector. If any current settings do not apply to all selected transfers, then that field is left blank. Of course, if you now apply a value, it is going to affect all selected torrents.

That's not a bad idea.
