Default Make a confirmation dialog for "Start All Downloads"

Hi,

I have tens of thousands of items in the LinkGrabber. Starting them all makes absolutely no sense to me, but due to the prominent presence of the "Start all Downloads" button in the right-click menu and occasional mouse-lag or human error I will sometimes accidentally click it and then I will panic and immediately shut down jD2 completely to avoid tens of thousands of items I don't want to download from flooding the download list.

The same is true for the button on the lower right also titled "Start all Downloads". It's the same position as a filter-menu in the Downloads list and I accidentally clicked on it several times when I just wanted to filter my list.

Imo these should either be hidden/positioned better or a popup should appear warning you that you just clicked it and whether you want to proceed if there are more than, say, 100 items in the LinkGrabber list.

Cheers,
Tom

You can disable *autostart* in bottom right corner of the linkgrabber
You can use selection/rightclick context menu to just add those links you want to add
You can toggle between *add..* and *start..* via CTRL key while the context menu is open
You can customize the add action in menu editor
You can disable the *Start* button to auto add all links from linkgrabber via
Settings-Advanced Settings-GraphicalUserInterfaceSettings.startbuttonactioninlinkgrabbercontext

Thanks, that did the trick! I had no idea the interface was this flexible.

i see two screwdrivers, one at package Properties and one in the overview panel, but none has the ability to disable anything.

Using the latest build, and i've been using jdownloader for years now, just did a format last week and now i can't seem to disable auto start downloads when adding linksfrom linkgrabber to downloadwindow

Customize this bottom panel --> Then you ll find that menu somewhere and can re-add it

You did a lot of optical changes there^^
