Default something I miss is...

.... the ability to set an event in the queue-window. Say you would like to log off or turn off the computer after a certain file or files have been uploaded/downloaded. You still have more files in queue, so you can't use the time-control, and you'd really hate to loose the queue...
I'm guessing this isn't much of a problem to implement, and i'd love it if it were.

make a queue you don't want to lose and save it.

well... that does not answer/solve my question/problem. The queue is auto-saved if the connection breaks or the computer power down. I know that. That's good with the timer.
But I'm talking about something like a file-entry in the queue window. If you use the timer, the prog will power down and the file will be incomplete. And you have no control on where in the queue that will happen. Let's say you're uploading a 20MB file @ 14KB/s. If the transfer breaks at 17MB, and the site won't allow you to resume, or deletes the file as incomplete, that's kind of bad. And if you are sleeping in the same room as the computer (with a fan w/ a decibel of about 70) you really would like to complete that upload and continue with the queue the next day. Ofcourse - you can save the queue, delete the files behind the last entry you would like to upload, and then load the old queue, delete the files already uploaded from it, and continue. But that's kind'a tiresome. And I'm lazy.
Look, I just think a feature like that, kind-a like drag-n-drop from the menu to the queue window would be a helpful and quick way of controlling what is done.

Here's an easier solution to deleting and saving a new queue.

It requires that you enable "Keep failed transfers in queue" via Options > Preferences > Advanced Tab.

Now in the queue, select all of the files you want to transfer later, right click select Failed > Mark as failed.

The files marked as failed will not be transferred and still remain saved in the queue.

Thanx. Didn't think of that.

I've tried BigStar's suggestion of setting Queue to "Mark as Failed", but whether you do that or not, each time I start FlashFXP I get the Restore Queue window asking me whether I want to load the queue back in or not.

Why can't it just remember the queue without asking me?

Using V2 RC1.5 btw.

You're always going to get a Restore Queue Dialog.
That's how it works.
