Change file name while unpacking

Post by *browny » 2019-03-25, 10:37 UTC

Quite often there is a need to unpack one file from an archive, and to change its name too.
Now it would be two steps: unpack, then rename - manually or by choosing Rename instead of Overwrite if file already exised in the target directory.
Currently, the Unpack dialog allows only path to be entered.
If only one file is to be unpacked, would it be possible to show the full pathname as in Copy dialog - and allow to rename?
Renaming multiple files may be useful too - if that would be possible.

Essentially, this suggestion (and some other recent ones) are about treating archives as ordinary directories - wherever it would be useful and safe.
