PA 21.00.18 running on Windows 7 64 bit.
I made a big .PA file and thought I’d check it was made correctly with Menu / Actions / Test.
a) PA always issues a UAC prompt to do this!
b) PA always says there are many errors in PA files.
WinRAR 5 has a rather useful option in some cases, which is to be able to create an archive by replacing identical files with a reference to the first occurrence (hardlink) within the archive.
In case you choose to convert the file with PowerArchiver to another format, however, the resulting archive does not have all the files. It does not consider those that were present as hardlinks.
If you do a normal extraction of the RAR archive instead, even with PowerArchivier, all the files are extracted correctly.
Text Field in Tips Dialogue Popup is Too Short Bug resurfaced in v10.20.02
I posted a bug about this earlier with a screenshot but that thread’s gone walkabout. As I’m too laz…ahem…busy, you’ll have to read this and use your imagination: “Show tips at startup if not opening an archi”
If you mean Tip Of the Day “dialogue” - it works for me … Both under Help and at Startup (with no archive).
Screen 1400x1050 :p
I’m using the latest Beta and browsed all the tips to see if any of them overlaped the message screen as well as to see if the text was to small/big etc…
I couldnt find anything.
Windows XP Pro (Resolution 1280 by 1024) (Dual Screen)
Sorry, maybe I wasn’t clear - it’s not the tips themselves that get cut off, it’s the text in the drop-down combo box:
“Show tips at startup if not opening an archi”
It’s supposed to be the word “archive” at the end there.
TBGBe, you’re running at a different resolution and may not be able to duplicate. Sir Richard, please try toggling the combo box to the longer of the 3 options and see if it does it for you as well. Thanks guys!
TBGBe, you’re running at a different resolution and may not be able to duplicate.
Agreed, that’s why I gave it - I was hoping you would say what resolution you are running to get the problem?
It’s showing for me at 1280 x 1024, same resolution as Sir Richard is running. I just didn’t think you’d want to bother changing your resolution, takes like 10 clicks to get to that screen in Vista. :o
Not so difficult on XP :p
1280 by 1024
1280 by 768
Even 800 by 600 :eek:
A picture says a 1,000 words ;)
Dam! I tried to replicate that in XP Pro, Home using all sorts of resolutions and it didnt show like that! maybe it is something to do with the way Vista Displays things???
“Im still waiting on my new Workstation to be built as the last one Blew up!” Using Dell Laptop at home, and HP Workstation at work with dual screen and XP Pro 64Bit.
So I’m unable to test in Vista :(
Dam! …maybe it is something to do with the way Vista Displays things???
Probably, need another Vista user to confirm …
Drop&down has been expanded little bit more for Beta 3. Hopefully it will be OK.
Please check with Beta 3 preview:
and let us know if it works properly now.
