Description Tamás Németh 2009-10-07 14:24:59 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.3.1)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Unspecified Linux

I dragged dropded some files into ark (in case of .zip or .tgz files), and I tried to specify the target folder inside the archive by dropping the files to onto various areas in the ark window. However, I realized that wherever I drop the files, they will be appended into the root directory of the archive. Similarly, if I want to add files by using the buttons and menus of ARK, the destionation folder in the archive will always be the root of the archive.

Can you improve it in a way that users can specify the target of added items in the directory tree of the archive - both by dragging them on the chosen folder and specifying that folder in the menu system?
