Tabbed interface



  • A tabbed interface would be a great plus!

    I’ve searched all over the internet for a compression program with such feature. Only BitZipper has it, but it has some bugs.



  • yes this would be great



  • I agree, tabs are awesome and make handling many archives much easier and cleaner. Please implement this if you can.



  • I agree, this would be a nice feature. 🙂

    if someone explains to me why exactly is this an great feature, we will consider it. Archives are not text files. You dont have to keep them opened at the same time. You extract and compress as fast as you can and then you are gone!

    Even if you have to have 3 of them opened at the same time, because you are editing files inside or what not, having tab interface would be clumsy in a sense that you will be able to see only one archive at the time.

    While it would be an nice marketing, it will also take time to implement and test, which means it would be one of the major additions to the new PA 2007.

    Keep in mind that if we implement this, we wont have time to do some other major features, we cant do everything at the same time.

    So, lets see the argument. One sentence wont do it :-).

    It could be beneficial in opening one tab (or more) as an Explorer tab and dragging and dropping files. Or, if you were able to open more than one archive at a time and perform operations on each.

    and how do you perform operations on each, when you can only have one open at any time? At the same time, you can have several PA separate windows opened…

    If you mean “dragging and dropping” to create/add files to an archive, then why not use windows explorer and drag/drop into PA window (open archive)?
    To me windows are better (read more “logical”) than tabs for this function.



  • I agree with spwolf…a tabbed interface would just add some bells&whistles to PA, without introducing any really useful functionality.

    The only thing would be a more compact gui when more archives are opened.
