Can I easily toggle Auto Unrar like you can in Newsleecher?

I'm switching from NewsLeecher. Auto Unrar is a nice feature but I often need to disable it. NewsLeecher has a simple on/off checkbox right at the top. Does Newsbin have something like this? Can I create something by customizing the toolbar?

Do you want a download to just not unrar? Autopar not something you can enable and disable mid-download because it's tracking the file state at it downloads. On the other hand, it might be possible to make it not unrar specific downloads of that's what you want.

I mean it might be possible to add it as a new feature.

Before importing my nzb file, I turn the feature on or off. Sometimes I prefer to manually extract the contents.

Newsleecher has the auto-unrar checkbox at the top. With Newsbin, I have to open the settings menu every time. But considering how customizable the toolbar is, I was wondering if such a toggle was already there.

What's missing is a "per download" unrar switch. I think being able to right click a download and check a "don't unrar" option would be better than a global toolbar button the disables and enables unrar for all downloads at once.
