Relative folders and Multiple Opening files



  • You may want to break these into components. But I will leave that to you.

    (1) Fix the date problems with 7zip that others reported about a month. I have not yet had the time to recreate the problem I had . . . although the response of one other blogger suggests that I am not alone.

    (2) If I create a backup file with relative folders (to transfer files from one computer to another). When I later open the archive, it opens in C:. I have to go 3-4 folders deep to reach to the folder with the backed-up files. I would like PA to open in the first folder with files. It would be nice to save multiple steps. It also makes it easier to extract the files to the appropriate folders on another computer, especially since the D&S\username differs.

    (3) When I open an archive. I would like to be able to open multiples files at the same time. Now I must open one file at a time (unless there is some trick I am missing).

    I’ll let spwolf decide that 😃

    This was a fault report, no need for a wish to fix faults!

    P.S. Please check your thread as no-one has confirmed how to reproduce the problem.

    Again, this doesn’t happen for me. I have the archive filename as first entry in explorer pane and then the folders below that.

    What do you mean by “open” - are you using an editor or just a viewer? I imagine allowing multiple file which could be edited would not be possible but view only could be useful.



  • I can only report that archives opened in PA, open at C:, even if there is no file 3-5 folders deep. Perhaps there is some setting in PA that causes this. I cannot find it.

    In WZ the archive opens in the top folder with files.

    Sorry I was unclear. I mean “open” as if fully open (in the associated program). I know this can be done; it is default in WZ. I thought it would be nice in PA as well.

    you have to properly separate wishes into separate threads… we can not track them otherwise.

    thank you!

    Well, it doesn’t do this for me, so it sound like a fault or configuration problem - could be in archive or in PA.

    Again, tried this with a zipx archive and was able to open both a text file and a pdf file in associated programs at the same time 😕
    Could it depend on the archive format or the filetype/associated program?

    Note: Beginning to look like these are all faults or configuration problems - not wishes.

    So I propose to move the thread into “Tech Support” (at least for now).
