Highlight Archives



  • I recently purchased PA and was configuring the settings. I found a setting to highlight archives on the View tab. This setting is not documented in the help and I assumed it would highlight rows containing files PA recognizes as archives such as .zip, .rar, etc. However, it is not highlighting any rows for archives that have archives. Am I doing something wrong here?

    i might be completly wrong, but I think it only works for Explorer view, to easily recognize archives while browsing your hard drive…

    thanks,



  • I confirmed that it only works in Explorer Display Style and only when browsing the file system and not when inside an archive. I thought it would work when inside the archive.



  • Perhaps this could be added to the wish list. Highlighting archives within archives.

    basically, thought was that since you are browsing your hard drive, you might be looking for archives (you are in PA afterall) but once you open it, usually you dont need to single out archives…



  • LOL, you would think that is the case! You must not be a Java programmer using open source tools.

    i swear, we will have more than 1,000 options soon :-).



  • Don’t sweat it! I am sure if every customer had there hand in the software you would end up with Homer’s dream car ! Hey I bought a license because I liked the software.

    Why have another option? I’m sure that the people who want them highlighted in the Explorer Display would not mind having them also highlighted when looking inside an archive.

    In fact, it seems that that might be the expected behavior.

    again, it is totally different behaviour for different usage, hence we need two different options.
