The caption describes the information that is listed for each file. Right click any header to get a context menu where you can select which columns will be visible. You can also sort the lists the way you want by clicking the particular column header.
- 2b. Own Rating Icon
There is a little thermometer icon to the left of the filename (second from left). Click this to add a comment for the file, or edit a comment you made earlier. This comment will be visible to anyone who is in your queue for that file. The icon changes to a bug if you indicate that the file is corrupt or fake.
- 2c. Part Traffic Details
Double click a file that has more than one part (filesize larger than 9.28MB) to expand the view to show details for individual parts. An asterisk "*" next to the part number indicates that it is complete.
This is the context menu shown when you right click an item in the list. For a more detailed description of the various items in the menu, look up the topic "Context menus used in the GUI" in the FAQ.4. Bottom Area
There are two items here.
- 4a. Statistics Box
This shows a summary of transfer statistics for the selected file. Files that have never been requested can be considered for removal from the share if you have too many shared files.
- 4b. "Reload" Button
Whenever you make changes to your shared files (add or remove files manually from the shared folders), you should press this button to update the list and send the information to the server you are connected to.
Note: Servers don't like getting lots of data from clients, so use this button sparingly.
