If you have multipart RAR archive with a single file through many archive parts, seems that the only way you can extract whole file- is to open first part of the archive and choose extract for that file. Then 7zip extracts whole file.
If you open not first part., but r00, r01, etc. you will see needed file but if you choose to extract it will only extract part of that file - what was included into that particular archive part. And 7zip does not show any messages about that and you get only part of file extracted with correct name and useless contend ( as it is only small part of larger file).
1. 7Zip should understand that file is going beyond that part and show it to user.
2. It should extract whole file no matter what part of archive is opened. (or at least prompt to do that. Ability to extract only part of file may be preserved)
Another possible way to do that - force 7zip to check if archive is multipart and prompt to open first part of it (or do so automatically)
