It seems that the "leeching! tab needs the "Auto pause PAR2" putting back.........A lot of trouble to
pause PAR2 files by hand! Back to Beta 6 for now!

I'm able to work around this by adding ".vol" to the Pause Filter:Subject section in the Download settings.

If you have Repair and Extract enabled, and toggle the "Auto Queue Handling" checkbox under "Settings -> Repair and Extract", the PAR2 files should automatically be paused.
bug fixed. no idea how. hate it when that happens. trying to break it again now. will. not. be. defeated.

I would rather not have Repair and Extract enabled. I want the old behavior where the first .par file was moved to the top of the queue and the rest were paused.

I do not have "Repair and Extract enabled" so that option is out then ;-(
Like Jed "I would rather not have Repair and Extract enabled. I want the old behavior where the first .par file was moved to the top of the queue and the rest were paused." That for me worked just fine and saved on my quota from provider. Soooooooo if you can see your way to putting what I consider to be a very useful feature back in to the program I for one would be pleased ?

Just discovered this missing 'feature' myself after upgrading to 7.0 Beta 7...

Why in the world was it taken out?

Please restore it :)
