But in some cases, storing everything in one file is really quite
comfortable. For example, if you want to just save documents on the
disk, it is easier to navigate with them with single files than with

I always hate it a little bit that I have to create an own folder for
every Latex document I write. With normal word processors, like OOo or
MS Word, everything comes handy in one package. I would definitely vote
for this function (I don’t know if this is currently available in
Scribus or not). Also, uploading documents, sending them via email etc.
is much better if they are already in one file.

Not everybody knows how to create zip files, and not everybody wants to
pack and unpack them first (me included). It would be good to have an
option whether to work inside a directory or whether working from a
compressed archive, though. For example, first work in a directory, and
if the document is then completed, just save the file as an archive.
