    Hi Raj and welcome to the forum!

    Currently the only smart tabbles are the extension tabbles… this other auto-tagging feature is in development. We expect this to be out in a month or so – it was planned to be out already but then we prefered tuning up the guy before.

    I keep a sort of log of what we’re working on here.

    Hope this helps!

    HUAHUAHUAHA

    ok, let me go through this:

    "mrdna" wrote:
    1. A tabble that automatically collects and contains naked pictures of my favorite celebrities.

    Far from impossible: it can be done with some smart auto-tagging!

    "mrdna" wrote:
    2. a tabble that will feed my cat.

    Not sure, but we can code a tabble that puts your cat on diet (by making you believe it’s feed it and not doing it) πŸ˜€

    "mrdna" wrote:
    3. an "Easy Tabble" that knows what I’m looking for and opens the one document I was really trying to find despite what I ask it.

    This would be Maurizio’s dream… I guess we could get close to it doing some pattern analysis (but this would requires a looot of code, like 10 man/years)

    "mrdna" wrote:
    4. a tabble that turns down the neighbor’s music

    Difficult, but we can still make a tabble that turns your own music on at max volume πŸ˜€

    "mrdna" wrote:
    5. a dialogue box that asks me if I’m completely stupid when I combine tabbles and get no file results

    Ok, this is a real thing: once a tabble is selected we should give the chance to hide all the tabbles that would produce an empty list if combined with it… it’s in the todo list somewhere (it takes some time to implement as nothing like this happens on the ground floor…)

    "mrdna" wrote:
    6 a 3-d environment where you must kill monsters in order to add a tabble to your query. If it kills you it eats one of your tabbles

    HAHAHAHAHA!!!
    I’d love to see this!!! As soon as we’ll release APIs and people will be able to code their own plugin (hopefully next year) you can post as a plugin request πŸ˜€

    P.S.: I missed this post and found it again using the RSS feed… if you don’t wanna miss a post, RSS feed is the way to go.

    Hello nefycee,

    I guess that I can see what you mean… this looks like quite a lot of work, as it would mean saving the webpage locally and parsing it trying to understand which picture is the one you want to see. If I’m getting you right, what you’re asking for is a feature a bit like the one that facebook does when you post a link…
    Indeed it would be a looot of work for us, which doesn’t mean it’s not gonna happen, just that it’s probably gonna happen in a while πŸ™‚

    Matt:

    Andrea – under what conditions would we want to reset the DB. I am assuming this would perform a complete reset back to "out of the box" tabbles setup. Correct?

    -Matt

    yes it would… I suggest you backup your db first! This is mainly in response to mrdna who’s playing a bit with some advanced functions…

    cheers,

    A.

    This is a temp workaround, but it should work for a long time πŸ™‚

    Anyway, this is the bes way to have your db reset and mos important to see if your db has a problem or if Tabbles doesn’t run for other reasons.

    Just do the following:

    1) find your Tabbles database and settings folder: it’s in your Documents and Settings folder, usually it’s in C:Documents and settingsyour_userTabbles
    2) Rename the Tabbles folder: this will force Tabbles to start from a clean db, and it may help specially if you have an old installation and have updated many times.

    aright!

    Just drag and drop from the Web browser (IE/Mozilla/Chrome/you_name_it) bar into a Tabble (or into a Combination), and Tabbles will categorize your email. You can later edit the name of the bookmark.

    Alternatively: copy the address (from the address bar) and paste into several tabbles.

    Hi John,

    nope, we’ll release an updated version in a couple of weeks. One reason is that the GUI is undergoing quite some changing now, so we’d better wait a bit til we release an update manual.

    Do you have issues with something in particular? I’ll do our best to guide you here on our forum. πŸ™‚

    best regards,

    Andrea

    Hello hello!

    we’re not sleeping, don’t worry πŸ™‚
    The latest modifications for the German language have been pasted into the appropriate files… but which are the appropriate files?

    Introducing a .resx

    The appropriate files are the .resx files…and WTF is a .resx?

    – A .resx is a Visual Studio resource file that contains information for the localization.
    – You can manage a .resx using several different tools, my favourite is, a free open-source tool that you can download from here: Zeta resource editor

    How to use Zeta Resource editor:
    1) Create a project and name it "My dog loves my cat, non-platonically", or maybe just "Tabbles" :mrgreen:
    2) Right click on the project file and add the .resx files to it
    3) The empty strings are in yellow, use the sort and the search functions to find your strings

    The latest .resx (from today) are attached!

    —-
    FAQ:

    * I would like to help by translating a new language: how do I add a new language to the .resx?
    -> post something here or PM me: we’ll provide you with all you need (a drafted translation done with google.com/translate)

    * Ok, and what do I get if I translate your silly software into my fancy language (i.e. Crimean Gothic)
    -> you get the fanciest thing you can get from us, which is a license for Tabbles Business. Optionally you can also request a signed picture from the whole Tabbles’ team dressed up as the Village People guys.

    * Where is the old and sweet .xls file gone and why do I need to install this crazy software from Zeta Reticuli?
    -> The .xls was meant as a middle-format in order to have the translation drafted by Google Translate… and this is still feasable, just post here or PM if you want to translate the software in your favourite language. If you just want to fix the current language, please install Zeta resource editor.

    That’s all folks! :mrgreen:

    John,

    did you try the 1.1.7? We believe that categories are back and better than before.
    Is the current solution acceptable for you? If not, how can we improve it?

    thanks for letting us know,

    Nefycee: you’re the best! πŸ™‚

    OUTDATED

    Maybe you don't know it but you can scale the size of the Tabbles background, you access it by Misc > Resize wallpaper.
    You can also try to draw your own background with circled/grouped areas and use it for your freehand configuration… in a sort of mind-mapping style. Makes sense? ;)

    Hello there,

    we’ve been talking about this for a while already… we know that there is an issue there. We are now prioritizing new features (like the auto-tagging rules based on folder/filename/extension and) and then some on the same tune… we need to think of a smart solution, and has to be "one size fits all" to solve this.

    I know this is not what you want to hear, but you could try and arrange them manually in order to separate the ones you use more often by the others… one think you could try is to draw a desktop background with some circled areas (with names on top) and you could manually arrange your tabbles into those, in a mind-mapping-like style.
    Maybe you don’t know it but you can scale the size of the background, you access it by Misc > Resize wallpaper. I hope this helps… please don’t hate me if it doesn’t 😐

    Thanks guys,

    I see your points but I have a hard time seeing how we can fit our current functions into a more traditional menu?
    Now functions are grouped by similarities, and we tried to make it as minimalistic as possible.

    We need to give it reflect about this carefully, and then do a couple of tests

    but thanks again for the input, very precious indeed!!! πŸ˜€

    yo,

    "Jfw" wrote: Well the auto-tagging feature might help… but I am still convinced that keeping track of copies might be usefull (maybe as an option ?)

    We’ll think of it

    "Jfw" wrote:
    For the last one:
    I see tables auto-detects the drives (for ex c: and d:). Clicking on the drives allows me to browse the content.
    I tag a file "a.xls" on the C: drive as "Invoice" and if I tag a file "b.xls" on the drive as "Invoice" as well.

    If I want to retrive this file I can use tables and look for the "invoice" tag. I will then have "c:a.xls" and "d:b.xls"
    To have only the a.xls file I tried to combine "Invoice" and the "c:-drive" tag. I then surprisingly got "no files fiound" message…

    Sure, now I get you: this is indeed a limitation, thanks for pointing this out.
    The reason is that the "Tabble disc" is technically a "Tabble folder" – it’s nothing else then a link to the real folder and it doesn’t know what is inside its subfolders.
    So basically, if you have some files tagged in the root of C: they will show when you combine C: with their tabbles.

    What we’re gonna do about this is to disallow the user to combine the tabble drive with a normal tabble.

    Anyway this problem will be solved as soon as we’re gonna have the tagging rules (the feature I describe in the blog, a beta should be out this week). Then you’ll be able to set a rule like "all the files inside C: and its subfolders have to go into the tabble named ‘mys stuff in C’". Of course you can also create several rules that will automatically tag (and listen) to some selected folders: this way you won’t have the whole Windows installation tagged.

    Makes sens? πŸ™‚

    BR,

    Andrea
