user menu in archives

Post by tquest1234 »

Hello, what should I use for "special symbol" when I'm browsing an archive in Arclite?

if I use "!.!" I get the name of the file in the archive, but I want the temporary file that Arclite makes.

For example, let's say you have a zip file called "hello.zip" with "hello.txt" inside it.

I browse inside it, and use my UserMenu to run notepad.exe "!.!", but notepad will open the non-existant file "hello.txt", which is not what I want.

The builtin viewer and editor work fine though, they open the temporary file, which is what I want from the usermenu.

Why do you want to employ User Menu for that? I recommend setting up the alternative editor in preferences and pressing AltF4 to invoke it (it doesn't even need to be an editor).

Notepad was just an example to explain the problem, I want another tool I use.
