PA - Preferred Skin ?



  • Hi All,

    Currently PowerArchiver 2011/12 hosts;

    1 default Classic Toolbar and 20+ downloadable skins via website.

    The user can also select 6 preinstalled Ribbon interfaces ranging from office 2007/10 with Black, Silver and Blue.

    So significantly more classic old style than modern.

    Do you as a PowerArchiver User prefer Ribbon or Classic?

    Just being curious but why is your thread titled “PA - Skin’s Future”? when it’s really just a poll asking which one we use.


  • Alpha Testers

    I was a die-hard classic user for most of my PA days and defended it vigorously especially since I was an avid user of Marc A. Foumberg’s skins but since the introduction of additional options in PA I feel the ribbon layout suits me better for ease of access…it took me a while to adapt but it won me over in the end.


  • Alpha Testers

    Very similar to my use Moles.

    If I’m feeling rebellious I switch back to the classic skin. 😉



  • Which should I opt for when over 90% of use is via shell extensions ??

    I use main window only when configuring (options, profiles etc.)
    Admittedly I prefer Modern for that - but only because of QAT (I’m lazy) - not for the skin.

    Cheers, have updated.

    I am just interested in what is the PA users favourite GUI.

    I got that. 😉
    That’s what made me think it was a strange title. 🆒



  • I like to clarify it further with you Luxor… you know so your able to understand it. 🙂


  • Alpha Testers

    Ahem!
    @Sir:

    Miss title to be fair

    Nothing wrong with my understanding. :p



  • Yes, she’s always fair, whenever she wins the title!

    Picking apart? 😕



  • Luxor 🙂 you make me smile at times. Thats all that you need to know.

    PS: Do you have your forum set to not show when your online?? because whenever you reply your forum light is on red. Yet at the bottom of the forum start page it says your currently online 😃

    Can’t remember to be honest.<runs off="" to="" check="">
    Yes I’m Invisible. Ready to pounce from the shadows when required. :D</runs>



  • Ahh gotcha! It just helps when i can see green because i know how soon i need to bother to reply to a message 🙂 or how long to wait till i reply 😃

    If it wasnt for being on these forums for so many years and understanding how to check if your online without the green light im sure that “Pounce” would un nerve my slightly.

    However, as you un nerve me anyway it doesnt really matter. 😃

    you know i was just about to post a poll on our Facebook page.

    I feel that time has come for Modern interface to shine.
    We simplified it in PA 2012 a bit yet made it more advanced :-).

    Question is NOT what you guys like - you guys can change your setting anytime. Question is what average joe prefers - he gives PA one chance and does not know to change skins.

    So will the new modern interface with no default preview but with Preview smart tab and color coding be too much? Or will it be easier to use than before?
