    Hi,

    when I open a tabble it shows a list of possible tabbles on the right hand side which can be combined with the already open tabble.

    Question: Why don’t always appear all tabbles I created in this list? I newly created a tabble and it wouldn’t appear there, although I could drag&drop files from the open tabble window onto the new tabble in the main view window.

    I guessed it had to do with the tabbles database updating or something, but now I had a tabble open which showed only four of the 20 or 30 tabbles I created in that right hand side list and that made me think I have not grasped the idea of that list. Is that thing not supposed to give me all of the tabble all the time? Why would I be restricted about which tabbles combine with which?

    regards
    Mu

    hello mkay!

    there is a slight misunderstanding here: the "combinable tabbles" list contains only the tabbles that if combined with the the tabbles currently combined will return a non-empty list of files. Ok, I’ll rephrase:
    If you combine 2 tabbles in the main window, you cen get an empty list of files (= no files). If you use a combinable tabble to make a combination, you can not get an empty list!
    Plus, you use the combinable tabbles list to further refine the search…

    is it ok now? 🙂

    it does not only make sense now, it is a really cool feature!
    I didn’t know it would auto-filter empty result combinations!

    cool.

    …mkaiy, the question you raised made us reflect and led us to a great idea which will simplify the Tabbles GUI enormously without compromising the power… YES! :mrgreen:

    To everybody out there: please ask ALL THE QUESTIONS YOU CAN THINK OF! Very often a question you’d think as a very silly can be very prolific!

    I’d like to add one thing I have been thinking of:

    there is one condition under which empty results of tabble combinations could be useful. That is, if you could save tabble combinations.
    In Evernote, you can tag notes and combine these tags with search terms (sounds familiar…? 😉 ) and then you can save these searches. For example, I stored a search for notes with unchecked to-do items and the tag "Blogging".

    The result list of saved searches always varies and an empty result can be a good result (especially with to-do lists… 😆 )

    Saved searches in Tabbles (I haven’t found them, do they exist?) could be really useful. The result list for a tabble with an auto-tag rule does change when a file is added, e.g., but an automatically changing result list of a tabble combination (say, "marketing", "videos" + search term "uncompressed" in the file name) would be great.

    Just a thought.
