Can you please be more specific about "open docx or xlsx"? How do you open those (i.e. where do you click, or what do you enter on the command line? If you really use "ark" to open those files, it is expected they are shown as archives, because they _are_ archives.

Maybe he meant he can't preview docx files using ark. When you click on odt files, they are opened by okular whereas when you click on docx files, they get opened as archives.

Should be fixed with commit for bug 179066 (in version 14.12 to be released next month).

Sorry, I meant preview, I have a rar file with some office doc's and opening that rar with ark when I try to open that docs, they open in another ark, I was expecting that they open in office.
