    My computer configuration: WIN8.1 + SQL Server Express 2014, bought Tabbles Home Edition.

    My question:
    1, the Explorer context appeared Tabbles options, but the files are not overlays.

    2. Sort files can be selected only three items: name, date modified, size.
    Interest in the second case a serious impact on the efficiency of my work, so I can not continue to use the software, document finishing is interrupted very painful.

    Note: in full accordance with the video step by step to install SQL, and with the system administrator to perform Tabbles installer, really do not know where the problem is.

    I tried using a laptop in the new system is installed once again, the question remains the same, I hope to get a reply as soon as possible, thank you!

    Finally, thank you for such a good product design.

    Hi, please see my responses inline:

    Explorer no overlays + file sorting only three options

    My computer configuration: WIN8.1 + SQL Server Express 2014, bought Tabbles Home Edition.

    My question:
    1, the Explorer context appeared Tabbles options, but the files are not overlays.

    Probably there are other applications installed on your machine which install an overlay handler and are taking precedence on Tabbles. (This is a windows limitation, not a Tabbles limitation). To know if this is true, please do this:

    Open registry editor, and go to the location:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers

    now:

    1)
    Tell me whether you see a key named

    000TabblesOverlayHandler

    or something like that. There should be one.

    2) tell me the names of all the other keys that appear BEFORE 000TabblesOverlayHandler (maybe SkyDrivePro1, SkyDrivePro2, SkyDrivePro3).

    2. Sort files can be selected only three items: name, date modified, size.
    Interest in the second case a serious impact on the efficiency of my work,

    this extra time is needed to get the modification date of all the files from the file system, in order to sort the files by modification date.

    Please tell me:

    1) when the slowdown occurs, how many files are being sorted in the list? (look at the file count in the top right corner).

    2) do some of those files lie on external disks, which go to sleep and take time to wake up?

    The first has been resolved, thank you!

    About the second item:

    I read are the native computer disk file, open a tabbles, file number more than 4800, read very fast. But, my sort file menu only three ways: name, size and date modified, there was no other sort of way.

    Described in the manual:

    The faster – sortings (not requiring disk access but only a query to The Tabbles database) are:

    The Name
    The Recently tagged
    Files with more tabbles
    Files with fewer tabbles
    Recently the opened with Tabbles

    The slower sortings (requiring disk access) are:

    The Date modified
    The Size

    A total of six kinds of sorting, missing “Files with more tabbles”, “Files with fewer tabbles” and “the Recently tagged”

    But these items can help my best improve work efficiency, so please help me to solve it, thank you!

    Sorry, the manual is outdated in that part. (I just updated it).

    Those sorting modes you ask for (Recently tagged, Files with more tabbles, Files with fewer tabbles, Recently the opened with Tabbles ) have been removed in Tabbles 3 due to technical difficulties, and have not been reimplemented yet, because we felt they were not really necessary. If you feel differently, please explain in what situation they would be useful. Thanks
