Software: Winzip In-place Editing Annoyance

Winzip allows a user to edit a file in an archive, edit that file, then save that file back into the archive after the user has closed his or her application. However, if you try to edit a file that is in a folder in an archive, Winzip does not place that file back in that folder. What is annoying is that you only find out about this limitation after you edited the file and tried to save it. Even more annoying is that there are now two copies of your file in the archive! Gritted teeth!
