Adding new torrent window is missing folder selection

Post by Fullpoet »

Hi,

In Deluge 1.x, we used to be able to select which parts of the torrent to add via clicking a folder (so all the items would be unselected). This was easily one of the best features as it would help when selecting parts of huge torrents (0.5TB+).

This isn't possible to do now (you have to manually select all files) and the folder structure is no longer collapsible.

Is it possible to bring this feature back?

DjLegolas has submitted PR for this (windows-only) issue - I cannot post instructions for applying DjLegolas's fix to own installed deluge, because file to change is freezed into deluge.exe with pyinstaller.

Anyway, I built deluge 2.1.1 with DjLegolas's PR and if wanted can meanwhile rename old deluge.exe to e.g. deluge-bak.exe and move new exe in place, under '%programfiles%\Deluge'. Again all credit for fix DjLegolas.

deluge.exe - x64

deluge.exe - x86
