Resetting general Categories

Post by subs » Tue Feb 18, 2020 12:41 pm

Hi, new to the forums - firstly, thanks for this great piece of software!

Main question: over time, I have set several Categories that I do not use any longer and the whole list has become cumbersome. While I can easily reset the Category of a single torrent, I cannot find a way to delete (eliminate) the whole Category entry from the specific drop-down menu. How can I delete (eliminate) a Category entry from the drop-down menu?

Ancillary question: is there a way to associate a download/upload rate limit to specific categories?

thanks

Right click on any category in the left list of Categories: Remove unused categories.

Ancillary: I don't think that's possible. You can only upload limit rate per each torrent, so I'd select a category, select all, and then set a limit. But yea, this is a very, very specific use case.

Thanks Peter.

If I understand you correctly, I should click right on the Category column as per the attached screen.

Could not work out a way to take a screenshot of the resulting menu, but when I do that no "Remove unused categories" option appears.
Any suggestions?

Thank you.
I resolved the problem thanks to your screen, I had collapsed that panel and forgot it existed :-()
