Filtering downloads

With the changeover in the site setup I am having trouble finding the setting that filters out Mac downloads. The whole thing is a bit messy and confusing.

    Just wondering, will we eventually be able to filter our available downloads again? You know, so that we only see the .exe files or .sit stuff so that we don't have to scroll through nintey zillion files?

    Because DAZ 3D is in the processing of moving away from Content Installers to zip based content, the filters will soon not be necessary and thus were not implemented in the new store. I know it's a bit of a pain, but it's my understanding that they'll be right back on moving to zips as soon as the current store/forum woes are under control.

    The new listings in my downloads have .exe and .zip but nothing about MAC or PC like they did before. Does this mean the zips are MAC and the exe's are PC?

    There isn't a filter - possibly as the intent is to move to zips, which will not have different versions for Mac and Windows.

    Yes, the zips are wrappers for the Mac installers - they don't hold bare data.

    On a related topic - I notice I still have "Available Downloads" from two weeks ago in my list. Should the new site not remove these after x days, like the old one? If not, the lists will get ridiculously long and unwieldy pretty quickly.

    Downloads should expire, but it may be that the ones carried over from the old site lack some flag. You should be able to clear them by using them up.
