PA2006 9.50.23 Bug?


  • Alpha Testers

    I have startup location set as folder C:\ in options configuration Folders.

    Now when I’m in the root of a ZIP file displaying it’s contents I find the up a level button on the top left of the archive folders bar takes me to C:\ when I feel it should logically take me to the folder containing the ZIP file I was just viewing.

    What do you think?

    Maybe PA always worked like this?

    Hi,

    yes, PowerArchiver has always worked like this - startup location is where PA will always default to.

    Then I’d like to say that I don’t like it that way.

    There is little point in being able to browse ordinary directories from within PowerArchiver if you can’t use it to convenientally drop in and out of different archives.

    well, this is in relation to option you selected. you can simply select latest used option and everything will work as you think it should.

    But I changed the option because I don’t like PowerArchiver starting in the directory which contains the last opened archive. It just means I have to waste time clicking minus signs and scrolling to get it into some kind of known state from which I can get where I want to be.

    This is why we have My Computer and My Documents icons to start windows explorer and we do not have a “last directory you were in” icon. It’s simply far more usable if you start at the root of the directory structure with everything closed up enough for the whole structure to be on screen.

    Hey guess what.

    I upgraded to 9.50.24 and decided to see what the “System Default” startup folder option does. (I don’t think I’d tried it before) and I find PowerArchiver is now behaving near enough as I originally wanted. It starts on Desktop when run with no argument and I can still use the “Go Up one level” button to dodge in and out of archives.

    you are welcome. You can now use original option as you wanted as well.
