Help on Opus Archives


I an trying to make a function to help me create rar archives easily. I'd like to use Opus' built-in functionality but am having some issue and am hoping someone can answer a few questions;

Do the built-in functions support scripting? I can't seem to find any info.

I can't seem to find an option to "move" the files to a new archive, that is, to delete the source files once the archive is complete.

I'd rather not get into using winrar. It does have a move option but takes three 4 mouse clicks per archive and I've got a slew of archiving to do.

Thanks for any help.

Do you use DO v10 or v11?

You can use the Copy command to move things into archives. For example:


That will move all selected items into "My New Archive.rar" in the current folder.

Scripting in Opus 11 will let you do more complex things, but may not be needed just for this.
