Scrivener file format zipped in a package?


Hmm, I’m not sure how this would help - in fact it would only cause more problems. For a start it would mean that every time Scrivener wanted to open a text file, it would have to unzip it - slowing down opening everything whie you are using Scrivener. More importantly, though, having the individual files zipped up inside the package will not make the final .scriv zipped file any smaller; zips inside zips make the file no smaller than just one zip of everything (if anything, it is likely to be bigger).

The most important thing is that the file format has to be optimised for use, not for backing up.
