I have a lot of created batches and want to organize them back into folders or rename them with more logical names, I will have problem :
In case of rename/move your .pbs files are erased from the dashboard…
Hereby a visualisation of the effects when you rename a .pbs batch :
Actual status : two files in explorer/two in dashboard, syncrone.
I rename a file in explorer (not a function in dashboard). And now I have 2 files in explorer, 1 in dashboard. The REFRESH has no impact… and the renamed is erased…
To have the renamed file in the dashboard, I have to run it once in explorer.
Question : if you open the dashboard for ARCHIVES, and want to open one or add a new, PA will open an explorer where you have all functions. Why not the same technic in BACKUP ? This will avoid this kind of problems (I suppose).
@spwolf I went back to the explorer shell commands. Aaaah, somewhere there’s allways a solution in PA ! My case : the file was already encrypted, but I forgot to ‘manual’ add the ‘enc’ in the filename. Renaming is for the moment not a good idea (discussed in chat, but still to report). But of course, in explorer you select the encrypted file, then in shell command ‘Power Archiver’/‘Encrypt’ and there you can select the suffix ‘_enc’. Cool, my encrypted file is encrypted again but now with the desired encrypt indication !
(the context of my request was in the case I use PA as an ordinary Zipper to quickly compress/encrypt just one file. So not a real archive).
Ok, given the possibility to adjust it trough PA itself, my problem is solved :-)
@spwolf :-( I quickly use this chat channel for a general quesion : debugging is a TOP priority but are you also interested on feedback on ununiformized (unstardizated) screens… I mean, depanding approach of PA you obtain screens with limited param options, other ones with full options…
please fire away any question, concern or wish… just open up a new thread no matter how “small” or large the issue or suggestion is… thanks!
@pirrbe thanks to those files i discovered that it creates .7z archive 2nd time around, hence it cant be opened as .pa… it works if you rename it to .7z… seems like something simple in gui that we should be able to fix quickly… thanks a lot!
Looking very nice the low priority checkbox. Love it.
I want to add it checked as default, it would be good for more people to test it out to make sure there are no adverse conditions… in my testing there is no loss of performance as long as user is not doing anything else, which is how it should be… if you have 30 chrome tabs open and are browsing, then you likely want to browse without hickups too.
Open an archive with Folders Bar enabled, click once on the archive name in the Folders Bar and now click on a file in the listing. The archive name in the Folders Bar is now completely black and impossible to read!!!
This affects only the Light skins except for Classic Light!
(Caramel, Holidays, Office 2016 Light, Spring Green, Valentine, Whiteprint)
Update: I am seeing a focusing bug on those not affected…
With Blueprint, Classic Dark, Halloween and Office 2016 Dark skins, the archive name in Folders Bar remains selected even with a filename selected in list!
With the Classic Light skin, the archive name in Folders Bar remains unselected when a filename is selected in list!
I would certainly love the feature of PA allowing the user to define custom codec chains
like it is possible in FA, EcoZip or HaoZip.
This would allow me to use my own chain for extensions
that would be too slow or too custom for you.
