#4240 new Enhancement

Reveal in Finder enhancements

Reported by: Waldorf Owned by: livings124
Priority: Normal Milestone: 3.00
Component: Mac Client Version: 2.22
Severity: Normal Keywords:


I'd like to suggest a few enhancements I instinctively try, although I know they don't work in Transmission.

  • Default Shortcut
  • Magnifying Glass in File Inspector

Default Shortcut

I noticed that a lot lot of apps, including apple's, are using CMD-SHFT-R to reveal the currently selected file. Maybe a nice+simple addition to Transmission as well?

Magnifying Glass in File Inspector

Also, the priority controls in the file inspector could be changed into the little grey magnifying glass when the file has been downloaded. That way there is a more user-visible way for the user to reveal the file in the finder. The current double-click is not something most users will discover.
While downloading, the double-click could/should still be there, for the more advanced use(r).

Ps. the checkbox, too, could be completely hidden, instead of "inactive". It's becoming more and more popular in Mac apps to completely hide controls that are irrelevant to the current state [of the file]. Mimicking GUI patterns discovered/used on iOS.

Command-R already reveals in Finder in the main window.

Replying to livings124:

Command-R already reveals in Finder in the main window.

I'd like it in the inspector too. I find that I rarely "reveal" a file from the main list, but mostly from the inspector.

  • Milestone changed from None Set to 2.90

Displaying a reveal button for finished torrents seems like a fair option.
