Duplicate "Compression Profile" names allowed



  • I found out (accidentally, I assure you) that PA allows more than one compression profile of a given name. Needless to say this can be confusing when you go to use one of them.

    I was in there and copied/pasted one profile name, intending to change the name “ZIP (Save full paths)” to “ZIP (Save no paths)”. (Yeah, I’m lazy. That’s why I want a “Configuration” toolbar button"!) But I forgot to change the name, then later went to use the profile…

    Now, I’m not saying this is bug “2 of 2”, but… Well let’s just say I’m hoping! 🙂

    damn…I’m glad I keep things simple…:)



  • There’s nothing complicated about how I have it set up. I have two ZIP and two 7-ZIP profiles. I prefer to select profiles from a drop-down than to keep an eye on various settings, especially when those settings become the new default.

    granted it probably is very useful to you but all my compression is always done via the context menu…it’s very rare I actually open PA in all it’s glory unless of course I’m examining archives.

    I wonder if there is any way a 'NEW" Profile can be added to the context menu
    or would that be something to perhaps wish for in a future release?

    i consider this an feature, not a bug… PA lets you name your profiles as you wish, no restrictions :).

    There are real bugs you know, I have list, its big! 🙂

    too complicated, you can set defaults via default profile though….



  • I use these compression profiles from the context menu as well. I’m not sure why every post I make becomes an indictment of me as a computer user.

    Sorry, I thought this was a bug. Because you’re actually wrong; you can’t name profiles as you wish. I wanted to rename the default profiles, but could not. (Actually I wanted to delete them, but after finding I couldn’t, I tried renaming them.) In any case, it’s a real stretch trying to call the ability to have duplicate names a “feature”.

    dont take it personally, people have opinions, thats just all :).



  • It didn’t make sense though; I access compression profiles via the context menu.

    most people use default explorer shell options, and dont go into the options screen :). Thats probably what he meant… but thats why we are here and we take in mind that we have wide range of users that are using PA in different ways 😛

    seems to be some confusion here over MY post maybe?..methinks nameless has seen it as an attack on his original post when in actual fact I was just stipulating the fact that I use the context menu…I saw no mention of that in his original post which is why I aimed my wish at the context menu having the additional options.

    do I now have to make sure my posts are politically correct people ?..or am I now labeled as ‘opinionated’ ?
    it seems I will have to construct my replies more diligently so as not to offend anyone in future…sheesh!
    and here was me thinking all I was doing was testing a piece of software.

    apologies ‘nameless’ if you thought I was making light of your post…it wasn’t my intention.
    I was just airing my views and wishes on the topic in question.
