View contents of a ZIP or RAR file open in Viewer

This articles helps you understand how you can view contents of a file in viewer, if uploaded in archived file formats (.zip and .rar).

Updated over a week ago

Asite users can view contents of a file (based on supported file formats) uploaded

in .zip or .rar file format, in projects where Universal Web Viewer is configured for viewing files (See how to configure file viewer while creating a project). This feature is supported for .zip or .rar files uploaded as primary file and/or secondary files. This feature is supported in Asite web application only.

Below is an example of how a .zip file would look like when it is opened. You will see a list of all the files and folders included in that .zip file which you opened.

At this stage, you have an option to use File Viewer Standard Functions if required.

Click on the file name to view the file or click on the corresponding icon to download that particular file.

The file will open in viewer. Click here for detailed help on Universal Web Viewer functions. Please note that markup options in the viewer will not be available while viewing ZIP or RAR file contents.

In case the file viewer doesn't support the selected file format, a message will be displayed indicating that the selected file cannot be viewed online.
