Drag & drop inside Zip



  • 1. open zip file
    2. select one file and drag & drop inside archive
    3. The drag & drop dialog comes up
    4. The filename has 2 slashes… See image

    But also why does the dialog come up? It just want to update the file form the temp folder it created to see inside archive? could you explain this feature?

    I’ll log in the issue with the double slash, thanks for that!

    The D&D window will come up any time you D&D something inside the archive. PA gives you the ability of adding a file/s to your archive using different options.
    For example, you might want to add in a file and encrypt it, while keeping the rest not encrypted.

    If you wanted to update one of those files inside the archive, why did you go to the temp folder?
    You can open a file from within the archive, update, save it and have PA update it inside the archive.

    Is that a commitment I read between the lines 😃

    Regarding"why did you go to the temp folder?".

    I never went to the temp folder. Instead of double clicking I accidentally d&d the file. I’m aware you can D&D files from outside of PA to include. But I find it strange that It tries to include a file from the temp folder PA created to show me the files. I never created the file.

    This is a temp-file PA created and for some reason it thinks I want to add this file.

    you can drag and drop file from PA to PA :-).

    It works for things like changing compression method or encrypting the file.

    I tried to encrypt one of the files. I asked for the PW, but the file never gets encrypted.

    Guess i’m doing something wrong…

    But I do likt this idea: “you can drag and drop file from PA to PA”.

    check now with latest release?



  • 4. Now there is no slash.

    And it also doesn’t encrypt anything…

    Thanks guido!
    just tested encryption, selected AES encryption for the new file i dragged over, it stayed encrypted for me.
    Any other info so i can reproduce?



  • What New file?

    1. I select a file from the zip file. D&D
    2. The D&D dialog comes up
    3. Select AES 256, nothing else.
    4. Press OK
    5. Have to fill in PW twice
    6. PA starts to do it’s thing

    Now I would expect something to be encrypted. But I cannot find anything that is.

    What should be encrypted?


  • conexware

    are you dragging a file from PA to PA?

    the D&D dialog that comes up are settings for the dragged file only. so, if you drag over a file to a new window(i.e new file), that dragged file will be encrypted regardless if the rest of the archive is encrypted or not.


  • conexware

    drag and drop from same archive into same archive in order to change compression or encryption, etc 🙂


  • conexware

    ohhhhh, I stand surprised with PA’s hidden features 🙂

    got it confirmed, it does not encrypt the file when D&D into same archive. Logging it in, thanks guys!
