It would be great if I could export or open a file out of the MSIX Packaging Tool when using the editor.

That way I could look at its content or the file version Information.

In case its is a config file I could then change something and add it again.

Functionality thought: Ideally a right click edit on a file in the editor would make a temporary copy of the file and do a shell launch on it to let the local FTA handler edit it.

We have the ability to unpack all files, but per-file seems like a good idea.  Adding to backlog.

Yeah, the workflow we have to use today is to unpack, edit the file externally and make a copy, go back to the packaging tool and remove the file, then add the updated copy back in.  It would be great to simplify that.
