I am unable to create a new archive with Ark
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Start Ark
2. Click "Create New Archive"
3. Choose a folder
4. Choose a name
5. Choose a format (I tried .tar and .tar.lz4)
Nothing happens, no archive file is created in the designated location, no error on terminal, no view change (remains on Welcome page)
A new archive is created and opened
Linux/KDE Plasma: git master as of 2021-11-16
Opening existing archives works, it just doesn't create new ones.
Can confirm the issue, the KFileItemActions plugin works fine though
I think you can, it's just that the main page is not correctly implemented and does not disappear (i already complained about that but noone did anything).
Can you confirm that after all those steps you can do Archive->Add files (and you can't before the steps)?
Ah, yeah, I opened an existing archive, then chose "Create New" and it told me "The archive will be created once you add files".
So it's really only the welcome page not disappearing.

Emit readiness when creating new archive
There won't be any asynchronous job done, the part will be
immediately ready. Ensures the welcome screen hides properly.
