Default location for magnet links different from torrent files

Reported by: lordjeremias Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: Sometime
Component: Transmission Version: 2.51
Severity: Normal Keywords: Default Location, magnet link



It seems to me that the default location should behave differently if the torrent came from a magnet link or a torrent file.

Currently i have torrent files downloaded and managed by a third party application and would like to open them and save the download on the same spot as the torrent file is.

If on the hand i open a magnet link, then i would like to save the download to a default folder, without Transmission opening a dialog window asking me where to download.

So, in pythonesque pseudo-code:

if torrent is magnet_link:

download_folder = default_location

elif torrent is torrent_file:

download_folder = same_path_as_torrent_file

thanks for the great work

I'm not really sure this option would be used by many users. Seems like overkill to me.
