Treat EPUB files as ZIP archives

Postby LeissKG » Mon Nov 18, 2019 12:05 pm

Could you please treat an EPUB file automatically as an ZIP archive or at least have an option to do that. EBooks in EPUB format are ZIP archives.
At this time if I want to know what is the difference between two versions of an eBook I have to change the extension to zip and
that do an compare. Or you could do this automagically, if a file contains a valid signature of a zip file treat it as such.

with kind regards

Actually i later found that there is an option that lets WinMerge detect the archive type from the file signature. But since my post was still waiting for approval i could not retract my post.
I still think it would be nice to treat an EPUB like a ZIP archive for the people that have not set this flag in the options
