Hi Phil,

> Is there a way that the zip plugin can allow it to remain zipped.

There may be others ways to accomplish it as well, but the following is
the one way I can think of to work around the issue:

You can put the files you want *unzipped* into a separate subfolder in
the right-hand side of the Gather panel. Then, you can Configure the
ZipPlugin in the Configure panel to apply only to this subfolder, as
explained below. By doing so, the top-level zip files will not be unzipped.

For instance, if you called the folder "unzipped", then set the
process_exp field in the ZipPlugin configuration dialog to the regular
expression: 'unzipped.*.zip'.

This tells the Zip plugin to only process (unzip) files whose filepaths
have the pattern: "unzipped<followed by any set of characters>.zip"

Please see the section "Using process_exp to control document processing
(advanced)" of the tutorial
