Required Files does not check again until download finishes

Asked by Michael

I am using Version 1.7.0-rc1.
If you schedule a layout for display and if it starts downloading files, it never checks required files again until it finishes download all files. Download continues even the files does not required anymore. For example you schedule a very big layout to a client by mistake, and you correct the layout very quick, you don't have chance, you should wait for all files to download, or should restart client.
I think client should check required files again even it starts download, to make sure the files are still required.

The behaviour is as expected - in most cases the way it works will be sufficient, but I do take your point about cancelling incorrect downloads.

This will be a feature request for a future version.

We are slowing moving to Github, so I have logged it there (

Can you help with this problem?
