#2123 closed bug (WontFix)

Custom destination path should add without "move on complete"

Reported by: bmnot Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.3.6
Component: Unknown Version: 1.3-stable
Keywords: Cc:


When a torrent is manually added, and the user types in a custom destination path, it makes no sense to tick the "Options - Move Completed" box in the torrent's options.

Example: Preferences - Default download path: ~/Downloads/incoming/, Move completed downloads to: ~/Downloads/complete/

Now the user adds a torrent, and the target path field of course defaults to ~/Downloads/incoming/, but the user instead types /storage/ and adds it like that.

The user has made the choice of where they want the file. Therefore, the "Options - Move Completed" box for that torrent should not be ticked, since the user obviously knows where they want the file to be placed.

I think this has been discussed in another ticket but cannot remember exact conclusion.

I think the solution for this is allowing the move completed field to be set from add torrent dialog.

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

I think with move completed being able to be set on the add torrent dialog (#2013) it is easy enough to unclick if you add a custom save path.
