PA 21.00.18 running on Windows 7 64 bit.
I made a big .PA file and thought I’d check it was made correctly with Menu / Actions / Test.
a) PA always issues a UAC prompt to do this!
b) PA always says there are many errors in PA files.
WinRAR 5 has a rather useful option in some cases, which is to be able to create an archive by replacing identical files with a reference to the first occurrence (hardlink) within the archive.
In case you choose to convert the file with PowerArchiver to another format, however, the resulting archive does not have all the files. It does not consider those that were present as hardlinks.
If you do a normal extraction of the RAR archive instead, even with PowerArchivier, all the files are extracted correctly.
Solved Issues with translations
I am running PA 17.00.69 in spanish, and have detected some issues with the translations.
In some cases, strings are larger than the available space in the control (TCheckbox, TLabel, …). In other cases, the controls are not long enough to fit the complete text, even if there is available space.
Find attached some screenshots of the forms I have detected:
@nikkho do you have time for 10-20 new strings each year? Editing translation files is very easy through editor and current translator is not a PA user. Thanks!
Sure. I can contribute in the translations, if the volume is only 10-20 per year.
@nikkho usually yes, since there is massive amount of already translated strings. But since you use PA, you can see things that our regular translator wont spot. I will send you files later. Thanks!
@spwolf looking forward for the files. Also please, take a look at TLabels that even if enough available space on screen, are not wide enought. Maybe you can use Delphi Autosize or something in that cases.
