File selection window WAY too small
« on: August 15, 2017, 08:27:13 PM »
Can the file selection be made larger or moved to a different location of the window? Torrents with many subfolders, and many files inside of those subfolders is extremely painful to navigate & pick/choose files you want/do not want to download. It's so small you have to scroll line, by line, by line, by, line, by line, by line, by line, by line, by line. Imagine having to go through thousands of files within a torrent in this manner. Sure I can make the entire window larger by dragging from the sides/corners, but the file selection portion of the window is still wy too small even when the window is taking up my entire screen. Here's example with pics uTorrect vs qBittorrent. As you can see, file selection is MUCH easier to navigate in uTorrent. Why don't I just use uTorrent then? Cuz everything else about it sucks. LoL. :)

It's been a year. Time for a bump regarding this topic. The original images are no longer available so I have new ones. While the new images don't reflect this specific scenario, and it's a pain even withOUT any subfolders, imagine trying to pick & choose files in qBittorrent, in a torrent that has many folders, with subfolders within those folders, and subfolders within those folders. You get the picture. This is quite literally one of the only things that imo, really stinks about qBittorrent. It's file selection implementation. Time for a change.
