    My explaination of the nested approach should also cover this issue.

    I agree that the displaying of all subtabbles in the file-browser should be disablable (if that’s even a word).

    But to the matter of the doc getting the parents tabbles of the one you drag it onto, I don’t see how you achieved that results.

    I just dragged a test file onto a test tabble, and the only tabble it shows when right-clicking->tabbles the file is my test tabble, not its parents.
    That said, the core idea of nested tabbles is to have more generic and more specific tabbles.

    Imagine the following tabble hierarchy :
    [VIDEO]
    |-[resolution]
    |-|-1920 x 1080
    |-|-1280 x 720
    |-[type]
    |-|-movie
    |-|-short
    |-|-[stock]
    |-|-|-transitions
    |-|-|-[vfx]

    You could imagine a lot of tabbles inside [vfx]

    When you tag a file with the “1920×1080” tabble, you are basically saying “This file is a 1920×1080 video”. Tag it again with “transition” and you are adding “Oh, and it’s a stock video, more specifically a transition”.
    So, when you look into the video tabble, it’s only normal to see it there, since it’s a video.

    Nesting should be seen as a inheritance relationship, going into precision and detail the more we go deep. When looking for rectangles, you want to see squares too.

    Did that help understanding how it works ?

    I was wondering the same thing. As far as I know, there is none : you have to create your tabbles, then organise them.
    Then again, it’s still really painful when creating a lot of tabbles. There is no “tabble hierarchy manipulation” dedicated tool except for the Workspace, and there you only have access to the top-level ones, the nested ones being accessed through popups whithin which you can not select multiple tabbles at once to move them around.

    Not being able to add directly a new child from a parent tabble, and not being able to easily change the nest-hierarchy of your tabbles is something that really infuriates.

    But I guess it’s not something you have to go through everyday, so if it’s not currently available, while it’s being developped if it ever is, we can bear with it.

    Thanks for your reply. I’ll use MSSQL then.

    Thanks for your reply.

    The installation in itself of SQLServer is not a big issue, in and of itself. And I also don’t have any issue configuring it, technically. It’s just a matter of comfort. I have MySQL Workbench, which centralizes a lot of great tools to work with MySQL Databases ; using SQLServer needs switching from the Profiler to the Management Studio, to the Browser… It’s more of a software maze than anything to me, is the issue I have with it.

    If there’s no compatibility, then I’ll stick with it. I did, after all, not posted this in “Help needed”.

    Thanks 🙂
