Yes, I agree, a cancel button is extremilly basic and essential, is unbelievable that this button don't exist
A Cancel button would indeed be a far simpler solution, but would obviously require the selected torrent(s) not
to be removed from the list before
the Delete/Trash/Keep dialog even pops up. I too found the lack of confirmation before removing data to be simply unbelievable. (The common dialog for multiple torrents is weird too.)
this is weird, who want to start the deleted process with keyboard and end the process with mouse?
Don't get me started on all those deficiencies now! :)
It might be due to the common UI framework (GTK) used across Windows and Linux versions, but this app on Windows at least fails to follow basic accessibility and usability guidelines, such as having accelerator keys (underlined letters) for all clickable items/buttons, having default dialog options mapped to Enter, having Esc cancel and hide dialogs etc. etc. I too find it very irritating when apps force me to reach for the mouse just because they have failed to define accelerator keys, proper tab orders and so on.
