Is it possible to search for content within an archive file (.rar, .zip and .7z)?

No.

Searching for filenames in zip files is possible with container-filename: search function.

For example:
Everything.zip containerfilename:Everything.lng

Support for searching filenames in rar, 7z and zip64 is on my TODO list.

Thanks...Is it possible to search for text in an a archived file?

For example...search for the string 'test123' within an archived file that contains several other files with different extensions or does it just search for a file that has been archived?
