So you’re just NEVER going to tell me how to do it???
If you use Options> Export to local file, it seems like everything gets saved.
Can you tell me what settings did not get restored for you via Cloud?
Nice idea spwolf, as part of any R&D this will be a valued and welcome tool in order to assist Powerarchiver maintain an already excellent customer service and in theory enable conexware to role out important fixes/patches faster with less impact to the end user.
7-Zip Optimized Compression in PowerArchiver
What is it?**
From PowerArchiver 2009, we have added feature called Optimized 7-Zip compression. This feature is currently unique to PowerArchiver 2009.
With Optimized Compression we have tried to solve one of the most important issues that 7-Zip has when compared to ZIP and RAR formats, which is speed and automatic detection of content being compressed.
What does it do?
With Optimized compression feature on, PowerArchiver tries to smartly detect files that are being compressed and assign special compression methods to improve either speed or compression. In the case of text files, it automatically uses PPMd compression for them (instead of LZMA) which has a lot better compression ratio and is also faster. For files that can not be compressed further, it uses different LZMA settings to speed up compression without losing compression strenght. It also works great with solid setting on, which is reccomended as not only it increases compression strenght but also speed as well.
Results are double the compression strenght on text files, and double the speed on files that can not be compressed (mp3, avi, mpeg, etc). Obviously these are the best case scenarios, and in real life usage it depends on data that you are trying to compress.

Very nice initiative! Hope all software companies follow this approach to motivate users implication during develpment stages.
thank you, many users already got theirs!
Hope I could get mine, hehe
@ckit Thanks, I’d forgotten about that setting. Changing that one to Notepad++ does allow me to use Notepad++ as the viewer.
But why the two possible ways of choosing the viewer?
Maybe the one in Settings should be the default but the one in the View dialog is completely non functional at present!
@luxor said in office icons shown twice in config> interface:
Only the one “Office icons” showing now.
But should that be there at all, going by your original reply to me.
@spwolf said in Duplicate skin.:
@luxor shouldnt be there at all since these are toolbar icons.
yeah, that requires a bit more work, we need to add some new options to that config screen. I will write it up for later releases.
@the_purspyk said in Configuration bug in relelase version of 2018:
Seems to be working. Some small observations, during the installation, I dont selelct any of the option ie add items to Start Menu, but PowerArichiver is always added to the Start Menu (this has happened in all versions of the program, and i have mentioned this before). If the program is registerted, would it not be possible to remove the Register Icon from the toolbar. I got the impression initially that my program had not been registered, or grey it out.
we will write it up, thanks.
As to the register icon, it is under Options in Modern toolbar. You might want to change the settings, upgrade to other version, etc, thats why it is there… otherwise PA clearly states it is registered in about window and unregistered is removed from the caption.
@spwolf said in Cannot perform simultaneous archive options:
To create separate archive of each file selected, there is Batch-Zip option if user clicks on files> PowerArchiver> Batch-Zip. This will start Batch Zip tool which will by default create separate archives (and there are more options too). Thanks!
I think this is what we need. Thanks for the tip!
@belladaisy2018 said in How to translate PowerArchiver?:
This is the second time i send an e-mail to authors of PowerArchiver and i dont receive any replies. I would like to translate PowerArchiver 9 in french. How can i make it?
Hello, PowerArchiver has been translated to French since for the past 19 years. Did you mean PACL?
@Brian-Gregory so in one of the latest versions we now clean up old program group, rename it to PowerArchiver and also delete old shortcut to PA 2017. So now when you upgrade from 2017 to 2018 all is nice and proper on Windows 7 and earlier system. Thanks!
@guido said in maybe add a minimum size:
Better, but maybe a little bit bigger?
it is a problem with safe mode, gotta be able to use it under lowest resolution, so minor glitches like that will have to happen.
@pirrbe said in PA 2018v32 "BURNER" - save dvd to iso app doesn't detect CD writer...:
Media used is indeed RW (tried Cd and DVD). I could burn and add files afterwards (RW). The format is UDF. When I insert that DVD using SH soft, no problem. I still can add files on it. When trying out this with PA Burner, it’s going wrong. No active ‘Burn’ button, incorrect counters, etc… The first problem was that the external writer was not recognized by PA. That has been fixed, but still not operational.
Explorer index :
PA index :
I hope this is not an isolated local problem.
yeah, that looks like Burner is not recognizing your disc as writable one. Did you try checking use last session checkbox?
I will try with some DVD-RWs I have, I burned some CD’s and DVDs but of normal R kind over the weekend.
