How to display a list of items before downloading?

Postby Thebigspire » Fri Jun 09, 2017 1:13 pm

Hi there,

I have just downloaded Deluge and am already downloading some stuff.

Question: when I open a random torrent file on Deluge, before I start the download is there a way I can see a list of the items of this specific torrent file?

Because sometimes we get some torrent files full of rubbish and we just want to download a part of the file, however, with Deluge I am still not able to figure out this feature. My OS is Windows 7.


Many thanks

The files tab should be the box that pops open when you add the torrent. You can uncheck them there. Also, you could set them not to start automatically and then change them to do not download once they are loaded into deluge.

If they are magnets then you won't have that list until the metadata is downloaded.

Thanks for your reply Shryp.

However, I can't see what you say. Whenever I open a torrent file in Deluge, the window that pops-up is the one below and it's empty:

As you can see, there are no files there (I'm sorry, it's in Portuguese and I didn't manage to change the language, but the content is the same).
I manage to visualize the files that are in a torrent file only after having it already downloading, then I look at the bottom and am able to see it like this:

Cas, thanks as well, however, as soon as I start downloading the torrent I'm able to see the list (as screen shot above), but I needed it before.

As Cas was saying, with magnet links you can not see what is inside the torrent until after it started downloading.

So, there is no way to preview magnet links even with newest version?
