#3999 closed Enhancement (invalid)

'Open a Torrent' is HIG compliant but a functional regression

Reported by: Lacrocivious Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 2.20
Severity: Normal Keywords: HIG regression


Recent change of the 'Add' icon, with its visually descriptive '+', to an HIG compliant 'Open a Torrent' menu item with ambiguous folder icon, is a functional regression.

When someone wants to open a torrent, surely they would envision this torrent as already existing. Why would anyone think that 'open' is the same as 'add'?

They don't want to 'open' a torrent. They want to *add" a torrent. I say this is an instance where HIG compliance works contrary to intuitive use of the program.
