Description Urmas 2013-10-30 11:31:07 UTC
There must be an option to use the store compression for ZIP files created. It is very important for reliability in case of document corruption.

Please, could you elaborate ?

Best regards. JBF

If a ZIP archive is corrupted, all compressed data within are lost. If the said archive uses store mode, i.e. no compression, the document can be restored manually.

I think it wouldn't hurt to add a zip compression option to "Experts Config" for those that want it.

Marking as NEW - valid enhancement request.
Comment 5 Robert Pollak 2016-10-13 07:16:09 UTC
Also, uncompressed save files could be compressed much better with other methods, see bug 103144.
Comment 6 Thomas Lendo 2019-08-16 22:56:06 UTC
In bug 103144 comment 3 I learnt that an odf file contains compressed and uncompressed files. Is it allowed to save all files uncompressed?

@Regina: What do you say? If it's not allowed we must close this bug as WF.
