View within archives?

#1 Post by mgroen » 17.02.2020, 11:54

Is it possible in FC to view within archives (.rar, .zip), in Quick View panel?

example:
left panel:
displays file archive.zip (containing couple documents),
right panel:
displays QuickView panel,
when archive.zip is selected in left panel, the contents of the archive.zip (list of documents) is displayed in the right panel.

Thanks,

Marek

In QuickView panel you can preview the file stored in the archive file.
The structure of the archive is not displayed in QuickView panel.
If you want to see all files in archive - simply open the archive with Enter and use plain view (Ctrl+B).

Can I create a feature request so the folder structure of the archive is visible in Preview pane (folder structure is visible),
so the folder structure is visible without opening the archive with enter / plain view?

this works much faster.

Thanks

Of course, you don't have to ask, you can create any feature request.

BTW perhaps some lister plugin for this exist, you can try to find.

Thanks, I appreciate.

Also, I like to compliment you with the program and your responses. I am thinking about becoming a donor for FC.

I will not name names so I will only say that on the forum of Some Other Great Freeware this would not be so

There was a time there when the user could take a request from some discussion and put in in form of a new topic, but now it pretty much illegal there to do so

So kudos to Marek for having a different approach to forum rules

You can read the forum rules, but if you respect them - search before posting, use the correct name, one topic per request, I think it's OK, it's still better to have all requests in the same forum.
