    Hi there,

    When I auto-categorize a folder and its sub-folder with a tabble called "texts" I assumed I should be able to not only perform searches for filenames within a tabble. The general search input on the main window only searches for tabble names.

    So, when I categorized a file, I still have to know its tabble to search for it? I find that cumbersome.

    Is there a workaround? Can I somehow assign a universal tabble and have it import all the files in my "documents" folder, so I can search for filenames from there, e.g.? I could combine this universal tabble with more tabbles to narrow things down from the universal tabble’s view, couldn’t I?

    The universal tabble could be "file" e.g.
    How would that work?

    Err, strangely enough, having had to paraphrase my problem seems to have solved it…^^

    I did create a tabble called "file", imported my "documents" directory and now I can open that tabble to search for any given filename.

    great! :mrgreen:

    Hint: open the tabble called "tagged" (this one) and then type the filename in the search field 🙂

    Hi there,

    that did not work from the start, because I only imported parts of my "Documents" folder and thus would have had to check for the right tabble first (because I couldn’t tell if that file had been categorized). That’s why I now used the universal "file" tabble in addition…

    Love folder tabbles! They’ve saved many an un-tagged file from being lost in the abyss of my hard drive forever. I add alot of files at a time so I will switch between sorting by creation date and fewest tabbles so files don’t fall through the cracks.
