"Download all" function with 5.4 should preserve original folder structure
I tested the new "Download all" function in the General IE Viewer and found that the original folder structure of the files within the representation is not preserved in the IE.zip, even if there is a logical structmap and the folder structure is displayed in the viewer. This is contrary to the IE Export where the original folder structure is kept in the REP.tar. It would be good to have the "download all" functionality modified. When a complex IEs with a hierarchical structure is downloaded through the viewer, the directory structury according to the structmap should be kept.
Supported as part of 6.1. Download configuration in the representation profile configuration provides 3 options – download all (regardless of original structure – current behaviour), download displayed representation (according to structmap structure) and download (single) file

I had filed this as a bug, but got a 'works as designed' reply. If so, then the design IS the bug, because when an IE has different files in different sub-folders, the origin of the files is unclear in the zip file. It becomes impossible to know which file is which by looking at the zip file content.
