    Is it possible to add different document classes to the "File Types" tabble? The closest I can get is to create a doc tabble and put in "File Types" but obviously it doesn’t recognise that I want to have a filter for .doc files.
    Thanks.

    good point again!

    the easiest way to do this is using regular expressions (check our wiki and look at the library of working expressions) I guess you won’t have problems using those 🙂

    I have tried to figure this out and am failing. I want to add the following file types: .doc, .docx, .mobi, .ai, .jpg

    I cannot seem to get it to work.

    Thanks for the help.

    Hi boba, and welcome here! 🙂

    It seems to me that you’re not asking the same thing as cpc… I guess you want to create extension tabbles – please check the training video "create a tabble part 2" on our videos page.

    What cpc wants to do is having all the tabbles with a certain extension, to be automatically added to a certain normal tabble (not extension tabble). You have 2 ways to do this:

    The slow way:
    – Tools > auto-tagging rules > New
    – in the upper part (when a file is created) check "and the file type is" and type ".doc" in the field.
    – in the lower part (then) check "show a popup…" and "put the file in the tabbles" and then click on the button next to it to select the tabble(s) "Documents"
    – click ok.
    – repeat this for each extension you want to add.

    The fast way:
    – Tools > auto-tagging rules > New
    – in the upper part (when a file is created) check "and the file path matches the regular expression" and then type in the regular expression you need. We have a list of tested regular expression here. In your case, I guess the regular expression you need would be:

    .*.(?:doc|docx|mobi|ai|jpg)$

    – in the lower part (then) check "show a popup…" and "put the file in the tabbles" and then click on the button next to it to select the tabble(s) "Documents"
    – click ok.
    – get a fresh drink and enjoy the ride :mrgreen:

    I hope this helps,

    Andrea
