• the tray icon should move to the dock ( What do you mean? The trey feature adds a menu bar item )
  • the big square buttons are, besides passé, never used on the mac
  • smaller, much smaller, filter buttons (and better *highlighting* of the active filter)
  • of course, the icons... ( which ones ? )
  • no "Close" button on every window
  • actually make the shortcut to close the window work ( Command-w )
  • leave normal buttons text-only (eg. the "update blocklist" button)
  • file chooser
    • buttons (eg. download location) are way off.
    • file chooser: don't uses square buttons.
    • file chooser: opens behind the pref window
  • maybe use the mac icon? as the app icon
  • remove those icons in the menus too, they are non standard on a mac
  • the "Torrent" menu, could you rename it to "File"? it's the default on mac, nobody changes it
  • "Add "dialog: remove "Close" , Stop > Cancel, "New Torrent" > "Create"?
  • "Add" dialog: make Create the default button and move it to the right
  • "Open" dialog: pops up under the new dialog
  • Do I need to reminded 4 times that I didn't specify a source? 1 field is blank, 2 the text under the field, 3 the text under the progress bar, 4 the dimmed button
  • why a separate to choose for file/folder? it gives the same dialog on the mac
  • Close should't be the default button if all the fields are ok in the new dialog
  • oh, also the shortcut to remove date should begin with cmd-*
  • details should remember it previous location + size
  • instead of just toolbar (in the view menu) use Show Toolbar/Hide? Toolbar, etc
  • hmm, on my previous comment on the "Torrent" menu, the mac gui has this too, but calls this the "Transfers" menu. but has the default "File" menu too, which holds the more general open/new/save/close commands
11:27 <Waldorf_> (oh, close in the "file" menu in *nix slang means move to tray)
11:30 <Waldorf_> mac apps always have a "Window" menu too, which handles/shows which windows are open. In this case, Main window (transfers), inspector/details/info, statistics. (some of  this menu is automatically filled in by the window manager)
11:35 <Waldorf_> not sure wether you get the difference between "File" and "Transfer", so I'll explain a bit more: "File" manages file related actions, nothing *really* bittorrent specific. every app has open, new and save (and move, in T's case). "Transfer" on the other hand has all the bittorrent specific commands as start/pause/remove/verify/reveal data in finder. "Window" menu also has controls to the *window manager buttons* bizzare that qt doesn't lay links to those automatically...
_ the "Edit" menu is missing the copy/paste/cut commands
11:42 <Waldorf_> (though the shortcuts do work)
11:43 <charles_> what would you copy/paste/cut? :)
11:43 <Waldorf_> tracker urls
11:44 <Waldorf_> anyway, they're default menu items
11:44 <Waldorf_> properties shortcut should be cmd-i
11:45 <Waldorf_> Open Folder is named show in finder
11:45 <charles_> "Show Folder" or "Show"?
11:45 <charles_> or "Show in Finder"?
11:45 <Waldorf_> Show In Finer
11:45 <Waldorf_> *Finder
11:45 <Waldorf_> :p

11:16 <Waldorf_> wtf!!!
11:17 <Waldorf_> why would the application quit when I close it? is that a bug?
11:17 <Waldorf_> *when I close the main window
11:17 <charles_> dunno
11:18 <Waldorf_> is that the default on win/linux or somethin'?
11:19 <Waldorf_> Oh, I get it... that is that tray "icon feature", right?
11:19 <charles_> I'm really not sure.  I'm having trouble with the mac/nonmac language barrier :)
11:19 <Waldorf_> QT guys too, it seems :p
