The menu in Archive Manager has an item "New Archive". When you choose it, you get to write the name of a new archive. You can also supply a password! But the archive is not created and you are not asked which files to put in it… So why does Archive Manager have a menu item "New Archive" when it has no function?
In Files you can select a bunch of files and on the right-click menu there is an option to copy them into a new archive. But you cannot give the archive a password!
So how do I create a password protected archive?
