    What for is the PACKTMP file useful?

    After creating a ARpack, you will be asked if there should be saved. (.packtmp)
    Where is this file useful for? and it is advisable to do this?
    (I am doing this, but I don't know why.)

    The .packtmp file type is for resource creators to save incomplete package files. It allows a user to save the package in an incomplete state, so that it can be added to at a later time. For example, if you started to create a package, but forgot to create a banner image for it, you could save the package template in the .packtmp file type. You could then use ArtRage to make your banner and then reopen the .packtmp in the package panel to finish it.

    In short, the .packtmp is to .arpack, as .ptg is to .jpeg.
    Nothing is easy to the unwilling.

    Thank you Someonesane, for your explanation.

    But how do I use it, I can't get it open.
    Last month I made a large package, and wanted to ad 7 new files to it but had to do it all again (because I do not now how to do that)

    To open a package file template:

    File -> Create package file.

    Click the menu button on the right hand side and choose 'Load template', then open your template file ( the packtmp file you previously saved )
