This action allows to change names of both files and folders. As in the Dolphin file manager,
this action can be called via a shortcut and renaming is done via inline editing.

As in typical file managers, moving, pasting and copying are provided.
Users can move or copy files from different folders (which are expandable in the tree view)
and paste them to the same destination at once. A folder can be copied into itself, but can not be moved.
There are also checks for conflicting filenames: You won't be able to copy or move files
into a folder that has entries with the same names - that could lead to data loss.</para>
<para><guimenuitem>Add Files</guimenuitem> (<keycombo action="simul">&Alt;<keycap>A</keycap></keycombo>)
This action can be used to add files at any location within the archive.
If you select a folder and use this action, files will be added to the selected folder.
Otherwise, the new files will be added to the root of the archive.

The default compression level proposed by &ark; is usually a good compromise between size and (de)compression speed.
For most formats the minimum compression level is equivalent to just storing the files, &ie; applying no compression.
<para>For <literal role="extension">rar</literal>, <literal role="extension">7z</literal> and <literal role="extension">zip</literal>
archives you can select between different compression methods.
<para>Note that using compression methods other than the pre-selected defaults may limit compatiblity with file archivers.
For example, opening <literal role="extension">zip</literal> archives with compression methods other than <quote>Deflate</quote>
requires newer archiving software.</para>
