Thumbnailview for rar, cbr, zip, cbz...

Post by Xandre » Tue Apr 20, 2010 10:32 pm

Is it possible to make an option for rar, zip, cbr, cbz archives to see one or four thumbnails in thumbnail view?

I have some comics in cbr and cbz format and it would be very nice when i can see the covers or the first 4 sites of one comic in the thumbnail view.

no, use an archive manager to do that.

You can have cbr/cbz thumbnail if you install archive Addon

I know, but then i can see only the WHOLE content of the archives when i choose them. What i mean is in --Options/Browser/File list-- an option for --Show as thumbnail-- for archives, too. All i see now are the symbols of the archives - no pics. I always have to choose every single archive, check it, go out, next one, go out....

No, you have the thumbnail too. You have the Addon?

Yes.
I mean the archives have to show up like the directory previews and not like this: (sorry for big picture...)

I only know the alternatives.

cbs shell can do it for windows explorer; use tweakui to adjust the thumbnail sizes
or use comicrack

Both may take some time to generate the thumbnails, depending on the number of files.
