      How do I get TABBLES to transfer tagging when files are encrypted.

      For example: Ax Crypt

      Original File: “test.doc” (Tabbles tags: A, B, and C)

      Encrypted File: becomes “test-doc.axx” (Tabbles tags: none, prompts to add new tags)

      Decrypted File: returns to “test.doc” (Tables tags: A, B, and C)

      Tabbles doesn’t seem to recognize it is the same file name with just an extension and all tags are lost until it is decrypted.  Problem is that while it is in the encrypted state, I cannot search using TABBLES because the tags are lost.

       

      Help.

      Hi there,

      we’re not supporting this, it would require a sizeable amount of work cause Tabbles would need to know how the extensions change and track all the changes. Tabbles does something similar for .docx and .xlsx but we’re not planning to do it for encryption.
