Archives View

The Archives view shows added folders, both watched and not watched (see Archive Folders), and all archives inside those folders. Three different views are available for each archive.


  • Archive folder location (1): Shows the archive folders where the archives are located. The folder can be watched or not watched.

  • The Archive (2): Click on the archive to show the archive details, in the Details View.

  • Archive View Options: Expand the tree node to access the following:

    • Content View: Shows all files contained within an archive (without any additional folder information).

    • Entry Point View: Shows the archive content structured in a way that reflects how it was exported.

    • Folder View: Shows the archive content with its folder structure from the Graphic Hub.

      Tip: The archive icon color provides key information about the archive.
      A red icon indicates a corrupted archive.
      An orange icon indicates that the archive is Read only on the Windows file system.
      (A lock overlay icon images/download/attachments/57236568/image2018-2-21_8-31-38.png indicates that the archive is Password protected).
