Archive Preferences

To configure Archive options, open the Preferences dialog box (Options > Preferences) and go to Archive.

The following options are available in the Archive preferences page:
Archive backup options
Controls if the application makes backup copies of the modified archives. The following options are available:
  • Always create backup copies of modified archives - When you modify an archive, its content is backed up.
  • Never create backup copies of modified archives - No backup copy is created.
  • Ask for each archive once per session - Once per application session for each modified archive, user confirmation is required to create the backup. This is the default setting.
    Note: Backup files have the name originalArchiveFileName.bak and are located in the same folder as the original archive.
Archive types
This table contains all known archive extensions mapped to known archive formats. Each row maps a list of extensions to an archive type supported in Oxygen XML Author. You can use the Edit button at the bottom of the table to edit an existing mapping or the New button to create a new one and associate your own list of extensions to an archive format.

Figure: Edit Archive Extension Mappings

Important: You have to restart Oxygen XML Author after removing an extension from the table for that extension to not be recognized as an archive extension.
Store Unicode file names in Zip archives
Use this option when you archive files that contain international (non-English) characters in file names or file comments. If this option is selected and an archive is modified in any way, UTF-8 characters are used in the names of all files in the archive.
