Hi,
I want to add a couple of images to my PEP3 gallery.
I tried copying them to the gallery folders where all the other images are located, but that would've been too easy - PEP3 doesn't recognize/show any new images.

So I tried exporting the gallery to a GEF file (which seems to be a normal ZIP format).
I extracted the file, added some new images and then zipped everything again.
I replaced the .zip extension with .gef and tried to import (merge) the updated gallery file into PEP3.
Unfortunately I'm always getting an error:
"The selected GEF file is either invalid or corrupt and cannot be imported."

I even get this when unzipping the exported gallery and re-zipping it without modifying any of the files.

Does anyone know why PEP3 is so picky about the file?
What am I missing?

Sebastian

Well, all of the image files I want to add are PNG files.
I can use the images by manually loading them into PEP3 for each widget.
So that shouldn't be an issue.

Also, as I said, just unzipping and re-zipping the GEF gallery file makes PEP3 throw this error.
Are there any specific constraints to the ZIP format that I'm not aware of?
I tried 7-zip (to create a .zip file, not a .7z obviously) as well as the builtin zip support from Win 7 (select folders, right click, send to, compress....).

In your zip tool, look for a menu item named 'Comments' or 'Zip Comments'. You may need to review the text you must mimic.

Awesome! You are my hero! :D
For future reference: the archive needs to have a comment added saying "V_2_0_0_0" (without the quotes).
