I noticed that the option to add the optimize archive function to the context menu is missing on Windows 10.
Opening each archive with the interface in order to click it becomes tedious with many files.
Same for others functions like Remove Archive Encryption
It would be nice to be able to at least extract Zstandard archives.
I prefer to use light themes, and when, for example, I have set up my main archive screen to be Classic Toolbar with Blizzard Blue, files in the archive are highlighted (no checkboxes, full row select) with white text on grey background. They are easy to see .
However, in the Add screens, the files and folders are black type upon a pale blue background, which is not so readily visible, especially when highlighting separate files in lists with Ctrl/Click for addition. It would be ideal if the backgrounds to files in these screens could be set to mimic the highlighting of those in the main archive window.
I have tried experimenting with different themes and settings for skins, toolbars and so forth, but, unless I’ve missed something, none seem to give me the effect I want.
Re: Windows 11 Context menu support
It would really make me happy if you put .BH in the Windows 11 context menu. I know it’s in the “More Options” section, but this would make it more convenient. Don’t know why the option to add it to the menu isn’t there in the first place. P-L-E-A-S-E ??? :) Thanks You!
Any chance of including this format in a future release?
Exceptional compression levels.
Now that the Windows Store is making support for non-UWP apps mainstream, including those with their own update delivery process, it would be nice to see PowerArchiver in the Windows Store going forwards - at least as a channel for the product to be available.
Tell us what features you want from new format…
AdvanceCOMP ZIP method?
I noticed that the ZIP files created by 7-Zip usually having better compression ratio compared with those created by PA. Knowing that from Wikipedia, DEFLATE used in 7-Zip is modified (fine tuned?) to achieve better compression but sacrfice the speed. Such modified DEFLATE is mentioned in http://advancemame.sourceforge.net/comp-readme.html as well.
Will PA implement this AdvanceCOMP ZIP? I think it’s quite a good method to provide ZIP compatibility with more advanced compression ratio. :)
(Or PA has implemented this method? :p)
it already has this method
