Description

In iTunes you able to select items from the list and drag-out to a folder/location in Finder and iTunes would copy the files to that location.

Would be handy if Transmission could do the same.

  • Milestone changed from 2.50 to None Set
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Moving is an expensive operation, so making it easy to do by accident outweighs the benefit.

Also, please don't set milestones without patches. 2.5 is already finalized.

THis is not moving the data files... It's copying the data file to the desired location.

Try it in iTunes... drag a few songs from the window to another location in the Finder (cursor turns to the green plus)... the music files will copy over and not be removed from the original iTunes music folder.

That does make a bit more sense, but I can't imagine this being desired in a torrent application, especially when data often isn't complete.

Currently to copy a data file (to give to someone else or sneaker net) its a multi-step and tedious process (especially if copying many items in many locations)... first the user has to select one item first > show in Finder > select and copy that one file... the continue the process for the additional files.
