Actually to be precise, I'm still stuck on a old version of ACDSee since it's gotten so bloated. I would really like to move to XnView, if it would just get full archive support.

I don't suppose the new version finally addresses this missing functionality?

Until this time, XnViewMP still has no zip support. This is the ONLY reason I cannot move from XnView to the MP version, even XnView has no Unicode support. I barely encounter the Unicode problem, but usually the zip problems.

Still waiting for this function. This is the one and only function that forces me to keep using ACDSee. I must have this function or I cannot use an image viewing program.

Continuing to wait for this functionality. I check back every update only to have to delete the program again since I cannot use it without this function. This is the one and only reason I am not using your software, a decade after first mentioning the issue. XN view would be better than ACDSee in every way if it were possible for me to use it, but I literally cannot do my job without this one specific critical functionality.

Those that are using ACDsee which version is to be used, that's not so ancient, yet no not that bloated?

I continue to be stuck using ACDSEE 3, a version from nearly a decade ago, because this feature is still absent.

I'd just like to +1 this request. MP is even better for photo browsing/sorting than ACDsee at this point and without all of the proprietary BS. For many of us, browsing archives is the only thing holding it back. :mrgreen:

Looking forward to finally ditching ACDSee
