@ArMo: Thanks a lot for the tip. Looks like a good workaround, however I couldn’t make it work in case source and target files are located in different listings (say: source.txt (already tagged) in folder A and target.txt (untagged) in folder B).
@Maurizio: Didn’t want to make you change your priorities. I guess I was just curious about the roadmap 🙂 Tabbles is a great program!kaptabblesMemberSeptember 9, 2014 at 9:43 amPost count: 21kaptabblesMemberSeptember 1, 2014 at 5:44 pmPost count: 21
I have indeed other entries in the registry, under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers:
000TabblesOverlayHandler… (2 of them)
0GenieTimeLine-… (5 of them)
Too bad it is not possible to combine overlay icons, but understandable. It would become very crowded if all apps would add their own overlay icons to the same file.
As an alternative, would it be possible to display the information whether a file is tagged in an additional column displaying in Windows Explorer?kaptabblesMemberAugust 29, 2014 at 5:03 pmPost count: 21kaptabblesMemberAugust 6, 2014 at 2:02 amPost count: 21
I can confirm this feature would be useful (for me at least 🙂 ). I have files usually tagged with 5-6 tabbles, and for me consistency it quite important. Often, I find myself opening Tabbles on the source file to see how a file is tagged, and redoing the same tagging on a new file of the same type (on a new incoming electricity bill for example).
So, how I see it:
1) in the Tabbles GUI or windows explorer, select one already tagged source file
2) select Tabbles menu item ‘Copy tabbles…’ (or in windows right-click menu)
3) (icing on the cake) popup opens and shows existing tabbles on the source file, allowing to (de)select some tabbles.
4) select one or more target files
5) select menu item ‘Paste tabbles’ (or in windows right-click menu)
6) if at least one of the target files is already tagged, then open popup: “do you want to replace or merge existing tabbles <list tabbles>”
7) replace or merge as selected in the previous step (or simply tag if there were no tabbles on any of the destination files)
In a different domain, this is similar to how Adobe Lightroom 4 is handling copying parameters from one photo to one or more others.kaptabblesMemberAugust 6, 2014 at 1:42 amPost count: 21
Thanks for the clarification.
In our case, we would use Tabbles with a personal purpose only. Some files are linked to work, but still private, such as pay slips. Those files would be managed by Tabbles (part of our private admin docs).
So just to be sure: if I want to share tabbles with one family member on the same PC (set up as 2 different windows users), I will need to purchase 2 Tabbles Home licenses.
Then, install Tabbles on the PC and register both Home licenses on the Tabbles installation.
This setup will allow to share tabbles bidirectionally between both users (defined and shared by either users).
Should both family members login from different PCs on the same LAN, files and tabbles can still be shared.
In this case, and given the discount, it makes sense to purchase the Home license 3-pack.
