Download manager

Post by zenzenati » Wed May 02, 2018 3:41 am

I am using SlimJet 18.0.50 on a windows 7 machine and I noticed that SJ download manager does not respond to "Enter" command to sart a download. In other words, I have to click the "Download" button with the mouse for it to start downloading. Thank you for this great browser.

Are you using the download process that comes built-in with the Blink engine or are you using the turbocharged download manager added to Slimjet which is unique to Slimjet?

Also, have you previously been able to start a download by pressing the Enter key?

I am using the turbocharged download manager and the download button on the download dialogue box has never responded to the "Enter" key since I began using SlimJet; All previous versions had the same problem. Like I explained before, I always have to click the download button with the mouse. All other download managers that I know of default to the download button, so when you press the enter key the file download starts without having to click with a mouse. I don't know if this is a bug in the turbocharged download manager or it is designed that way. Thanks

The Download Confirmation dialogue is still not responding to the Enter key to start the download. I still have to use the mouse to click on the Download button. I thought this bug would be fixed in version 19 but I guess it is a hard fix! Or no body is listening

It sounds like the download manager does not conclude (or include) the focus on the start "Download" button. You may be able to resolve this by figuring out how many times you should press the Tab key to relocate the focus to that button, it may just take one hit it may take 2 or 3. If the focus is beyond the button you want you may have to press back arrow or Shift+Tab to move the focus back to the button.

It takes 6 Tab presses to bring focus to the Download button. It's faster to click by mouse, but thanks anyway for your response

Version after version and there is no fix yet. How hard is it to highlight the Download button instead of the URL in the Download Dialogue box!

You could turn of download confirmation and avoid having to Ok it.

There is a reason I have the confirmation dialogue on; I need to rename some of the files I am downloading so I know what they are.

That makes sense. I did a lot of that at one time.
