If I zip a set of files within a folder, and have selected the folder when I zip, I used to get the folder within the zip file.

Recently this stopped happening with Direc. Opus.

Did I inadvertently change a setting? Did DO change its way of zipping?

When I select a folder and zip, I want to zip the folder as well as the files within.

Under Preferences / Zip & Other Archives / Archive Context Menu, near the bottom in the Options section, turn on Add single folders as sub-folders of new archives.

That's probably all you need to do (depending on how the archives are being created).
