Can ASF be programmed to show the list of save locations if a filter's conditions are met? I download from certain sites with no way to filter by file names. It would be handy for these sites to have the filter provide the save location list, but only if the filter's conditions are met.

I know you can choose certain options to show the list always, but the save does not proceed automatically. You are forced to always choose the save location.

Currently the paths list is displayed when the main option is enable. There is not filter-by-filter basis. It's a feature I would like to add in v2.0, but I still haven't started developing that feature.
I will put all possible "global options" in each individual filters which will bypass the main options when needed.

You are not forced to choose the save location, you can set the dialog to auto-accept and the first path in the list will be automatically chosen.
But if you want to select different paths for a same domain, then you can't use this option.
there are two different ways to do it.


For the moment:
- You can choose to display the ASF option box when saving.
It contains:
* the path of first the matching filter (to see where it will go before accepting the download)
This path is reflecting the one which is selected, you don't have to select it again manually.
* The path to the previous download path, if different from the first one
* The path to the previous download path from the current file's domain, if not in the list yet.

- You can choose to add paths from all matching filters instead of only the first one.
In this case, you will see more radio choices (not a drop-down list).

- You can choose to display the list of paths (all the path from all the filters) in a drop down list.




I recommend:
- Create multiple filter for your domain (use the right-click>duplicate option), and specify different paths.
- In the options > page 1> saving window > Enable :
"Show options when saving"
"Suggest all matching filters"

Do not enable the last one "Show a list of folder" if you don't want to see all the filter's paths for non matching filters.

When you will download a file, it will display all your paths you defined for this single domain.



Until I add the per-filter settings, you are forced to use either the drop down menu, or the multiple radio feature.
