Not super high priority, but it would be nice to get this done before the next release.

File > Share in Skyline currently uses just the extension .zip, which means it cannot easily be included in the default extension list for the Skyline File > Open form. Users need to know to choose a "Shared Files (*.zip)" file type in the Open form, and then they need to know which ZIP files on their system are shared Skyline documents.

Having Skyline export .sky.zip as the default extension for File > Share would allow us to make the default item in the Open form "Skyline Documents (*.sky, *.sky.zip)" and make this feature more discoverable for users and easier to use even for those who already know that Skyline can open ZIP files.
