Bug: Filtering of archives does not work

Post by AHCarter »

Xnview v. 1.70.1

Suppose for instance I want to see how many zips I have in a particular folder, the only way I can do that is if I set the filter to 'All other files', in the options. I have 'Archives' checked for both Other and Thumbs view.

I shall download 1.70.2 to see if this may have been adressed, if it hasn't then I've reported it.
Sincerely,
A.H. Carter

I've just checked and found that this is still does not work:
When checking 'Archives' (in option dialog, category 'Browser ->File list'), ZIP archives and RAR archives are not displayed. I don't know what the 'Archives' checkbox is for, but I assume (likewise) that this is for ZIP and other archives, so this looks like a bug.

Yes, I can confirm this is a really weird :bugconfirmed:
On my machine archives do not show up when "Archives" only is set but instead I am still able to see my JPG's???

Unless it is suppose to mean the Archive attribute of files?

Fixed. I think I'll retire v.1.74 for good now.
