Remember SFX Settings



  • I’m surprised there’s no way to remember the last SFX settings used. I do the same thing over and over and every time I go into the SFX creator screen I have to enter all the setup again. Since I change or add almost everything this is annoying. If I make one mistake doing this the .exe does not work properly.

    If it’s felt that most people want it to come up in the default/blank mode, make it an option to remember the last setting or provide selectable configurations for this screen.

    If this feature exists please point me to it.

    Thanks

    do you use make sfx or sfx wizard?

    Thanks for replying.

    I think it’s the one you call “make sfx.” It’s in the Actions menu dropdown – item Make .EXE file

    i think we could set Set Default button like we have in Backup.

    Additionally, what do you think about Make SFX window disappearing after it is done? I was thinking it might be better for it to stay open, in case you need another SFX to be created? It annoys me personally, so looking for another opinion…

    I don’t follow that. I’ve never used Backup but it seems to send me to an explorer like window. I want the archiver to determine the Temporary directory for the various versions of Windows, I just want to be able to add a subdirectory for my extracted files. Like I say, the older version of PA did this. I’d just like that feature reinstated.

    I have no opinion on that. This aspect works fine for me since I only make one SFX at at a time.

    you can set temp folder like you could before, didnt you see excerpt from the help in that other thread?

    as for the button, it is an special button when pressed, it saves those settings as default.



  • I’m sorry, this was a confused reply. I saw this email first and clicked the link in the email and answered thinking it was the other thread – the one about using %temp% as the extract folder
