Creating New with B6

  • Using the old interface, select “New” and try to make an archive. No matter what you select (7-zip, BH, Lhz, etc…) you get a zip archive instead. And you cannot change it in the Add window.


  • Doesn’t matter if Classic or Modern.
    The NEW window “remembers” what the previous Save AsType setting was and uses that!

    Press NEW - type is ALL
    Change type to CAB
    Archivename.ZIP is created

    Press NEW - type is CAB
    Change type to LZH
    Archivename.CAB is created

    Press NEW - type is LZH
    Change type to 7z
    Archivename.LZH is created

    As an workaround, type in extension you wish to use, dont select it… that seems to work.

    The issue should be fixed in Beta 7.
