#4838 closed Enhancement (wontfix)

Ability to edit trackers in place by double-clicking à la iTunes

Description

On almost every torrent, one needs to edit the trackers in place, i.e. change from udp to http or vice versa. This should be doable via a double-click rather than a lenghty process of copy/paste and delete/add and then edit.

...a lengthy process of copy, delete, add, paste, and then edit.

I don't see this as a common scenario, and the analogy to iTunes doesn't hold. Renaming a tracker changes the tracker - you're essentially removing the old tracker and adding the new one (which requires a different announce, etc.), while a renamed song in iTunes is still the same song. And "lengthy process" is definitely hyperbole.

I referred expressly to changing only udp/http and it's extremely common as pbt cannot connect on udp using Transmission.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

That's still a different tracker and has different underlying information. I don't know what pbt means, but this doesn't make sense implementing.

From ticket #2458:

Summary: "Double-clicking the tracker cell allows me to edit the URL"

Comment by livings124: "I have added the ability to copy addresses in r9219.

The remainder of this ticket is fixing lost functionality, which I will be re-adding later on and in my mind is a separate issue.'
