Here is a short video to [...]

By | 2009-09-29T21:02:00+00:00 September 29th, 2009|English|

You can now arrange tabbles in many different ways (by name, by color, by color name, be recent usage, etc.) in order to find the tabbles you need more easily without typing anything. (Previously, the dialog was very oriented towards typing. Not so anymore.)Here is [...]
