Dragging multiple files onto running dock icon only archives the first file #385
The work around in steps 5 & 6 is serviceable, but given how windows get buried under other windows, I find it significantly easier to drop the files on the always-visible dock icon. I recall that it use to work as expected, and only fairly recently broke with the above described behavior.
Thanks for such detailed feedback @kroyster! I'm just curious: a second file "File2.pdf.zip" is also produced or is that file dismissed? This would be the part differentiating this issue from #57 and #77.
What I found in the past is that some applications that handle those files (.docx and .pdf) make this bug appear. Since Keka receives those files separately, there's not much to do other than the timer (already implemented) that waits 250 milliseconds for more files. I've reproduced this issue in the past with some image files and removing Pixelmator (that handled those images by default) fixed the issue. That doesn't mean Pixelmator is the cause obviously. So maybe, just as a test, you can remove the .docx handler (maybe Microsoft Word?) or third party .pdf handler (such as Acrobat Reader), restart and try if the bug is still present.
Apart from the window workaround, you can also use the services that can be triggered from the context menu or even with a keyboard combination (⌃⇧C for compression).
