Create DMG from single file #406

In earlier version of Keka it was possible to create a DMG when dropping a single file on the Application. Now I have to manually create a folder, move the file inside the folder, drop the folder with the file inside on Keka and it will create the DMG.

This not only counter intuitive and less productive, it breaks similarity to e.g. zip-file creation.

It would be very nice if Keka will create a DMG no matter if the item dropped on it was a single file, a bunch of files oder a folder or a bunch of folders. Everything I drop on Keka should give me a DMG archive with all items inside the DMG.

What do you think?

Many thanks.

Sadly this was a result of sandboxing. Creating a DMG is now a two step action and the first needs a folder source. Before sandboxing creating a DMG was only a one step with any source allowed.

I've researched a lot before making this change and found no other way. In fact almost removed the DMG option. Hopefully there's or will be a workaround.
