There are some file formats that are extended from zip. For example, .jar, .apk, and .appx.
I have set Perform automatic action in the preferences. Now when these files are passed to Keka, Keka automatically compresses them, but I want it to extract them. So please consider a preference to let the users decide which action should be applied when dealing with specified file formats.

BetterZip lets you hold alt to switch the behaviour from compress to extract. I think it could be done better, as it always takes me a second launch to get the behaviour I want.

Maybe two modifier keys? One to force expand, one to force compress?

@wangweixuan I might consider set the default behaviour to extract them, since they are ZIP files. And eventually adding the customisation will come, adding this to #59.

@gingerbeardman I like the idea. Maybe option to compress, as in Finder to copy, and command or option + command (as in Finder to symlink) to uncompress.

Also don't forget that you can always do the alternate action to the default, using the bottom of the drop window:

extract-alternate

Added JAR, APK and APPX to the extraction list for next beta.

The customisation of extensions will follow here #59.

@aonez I think the default action of the .war files ( java web package format ) should be the same as the .jar file. Please fix it. Thanks!
