Try adding shortcuts to external packer list. When user presses Alt+-, listbox gets focus and it may activate an item by first character. So first characters should be different, e.g.:
Code:
0: ace
1: arj
2: lha
3: rar
4: uc2
5: 7z
6: sqx
7: bz2
8: wim
9: xz
A: cab
B: uha
C: arc
D: z

It would also be nice to be able to pin some packers to the beginning of list, e.g. some INI option with list of extensions to be shown first.

Is there any need to pin?
AFAIK, you can move needed wcx plugins to the top of the list in wincmd.ini. Not-existing EXE packers would not be shown. Overview of 8-10 plugins in scrolllist should be enough.

Problem is that INI files doesn't keep order of entries so items may be reordered on e.g. adding/removing/editing items. Of course you can rearrange them manually every time but it would be easier to be able to pin specific items.

Strange. I've never had such a problem. My config is pretty clear for years and nothing have happened with it.

The order you set will specify the queue to call these wcx. It is useful (for me) and easier than one more parameter for each plugin.

I would separate the internal packers from plugins, though, maybe with some thin line in the list. And I wouldn't drop the little star that visualizes an external packer is needed for that format.

For me this information doesn't really help me in selecting the desired archive file extension.

I agree customizing the order would be helpful.

No, but it shows the user which packers come from a plugin and which ones are internal packers that TC can process without any plugins/DLLs. Maybe some "Configure plugins" button that opens TC's packer plugin settings could achieve this instead.

Indeed.

Yes but why is this relevant? For me it's important that plugins are not perceived as something on-top but as something integral.

Well, plugins are just that: plugins. Users may report bugs in packers that come from plugins, not from TC itself. Or they may wonder why some TC installation doesn't offer packer format XY that they're used to see. So I don't think it's a good idea to make users perceive them as integral part of TC.

Maybe mark external packers with * and plugins with **?

This information might be useful in a certain context but not in the packer dialog where it's just distracting. 'Oh no 7z is just a plugin. Better not pack with it.' - come on! I don't think there is an issue -> There is the packer plugin settings dialog where the information can already be found.

Looks like no news for the topic. So sad...
Let UC2 become history, please!
Lut us use something that works on x64 and does not waste space on the archivers list.

I would be more happy if I could open pack dialog with pre-selected packer of my choice BTW (via some internal command or something else - there was such suggestion).
