Ah, I see. A bit confusing in the options wording there, I rather assumed that the extraction directory was only used for... well, extracting! :lol: I've checked with some MP3 files with PAR2s, and results are about as expected given the above: 1) "Use same directory" mode: the MP3 files are repaire...

I'll do some tests if I can find some small groups of non-archived files which also have PAR2s - but as there is no extraction process taking place at all, I can't see how setting to extract to a subdirectory will make any difference?

It happened to me again yesterday - NL got to the end of a 15GB download and then reported a disk space error instead of shutting down. This does seem repeatable, but only with the "Shut down when empty" option turned on. When you click on the OK button, Newsleecher only then starts to write the rem...

Read the first post of the stickied thread: http://www.newsleecher.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12628 I have, but it doesn't seem to cover this case? (i.e. downloading multiple files which are not archives and then NL auto-deleting them). Could you be a bit more specific as to which of the 50+ numbere...

Not sure if the referred bug-list posting actually covers what's happening here or not? It just happened to me too - and with 10GB of files, so the Recycle Bin did not catch 'em all :( This morning, I finished downloading a batch of .TS video files which I'd queued along with some PAR2s which the sy...

How odd, I was just about to report the same sort of problem (although not just with the latest beta, it's also happened to me with the current Final version too). I had set NL to download about 8GB of queued files and left it to run overnight with the 'Shutdown when queue finished' mode enabled and...

Beta 6 - Thanks Spiril!!!

Thanks for listening to all the chatter here about the drop-down group selector... but it was a bit sneaky to hide it where you did though, were you hoping we wouldn't notice it? :-) If and when you get a chance to code it back into a normal style drop-down box (and maybe move it to beside the Tabs ...

I completely agree, the new format makes it very hard to see the real age of articles in the list at a quick glance. A re-think please!

Quote original article text when posting a reply

I know that full binary posting is on the long-term to-do list, but in the meantime a third option for text posting to include the original message as quoted text would be great. So you could choose to post a message as "New", "Reply" or "Reply quoting original article". Just the standard "<poster's...

OK, now done. If you want to state how you would PREFER to use newsgroups in Newsleecher so we can get an idea of what the average user wants, please vote in the poll at http://www.newsleecher.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9211 I've used three options to keep it fair and open and get some honest feedback.

Sounds like a cue for a poll. If I can work out how to do them, I'll set one up.

I don't see the dropdown as more globally accessible than the Articles tab. For example, if you are in Super Search: 1. Click on the dropdown then click on the group, which would open the Articles window. 2. Click on the Articles tab (which also opens the GNP) then click on the group, which opens t...

Cool, do you have an alternative way to easily navigate your groups if you don't want to use the GNP? Oh, right... I'm guessing that the real problem with this big heated debate about the missing drop-down groups list is that - while I'm sure virtual groups, multiple groups and all the rest are gre...

Re: Some auto-hide GNP comments for Spiril

I don't think this would be a good idea, maybe as an option, but definitely not as the standard behaviour. It would make working in the GNP a pain in the ass, as every time you do something the GNP would disappear and you'd have to get it back again before you can do something else. Erm, yes... but...
