Tabbles Home

Tabbles allows you to categorize your files/folders by placing them in as many tabbles (tag-bubbles) as you like and then find them back by remembering what that file was about and “combining” the tabbles (tabble = concept) that make you think of that file, in a natural and dynamical way. Your files and folders will NOT be moved, duplicated or messed up with.

have it keep track of tags on files and folders if you move them with Windows Explorer File System.

We know guys, and we'd LOVE to do it, but it's simply not that easy.

But there is more: we used to do it using the infamous FileSystemWatcher, but the system was just unreliable (http://bytes.com/topic/net/answers/460919-filesystemwatcher-unreliable) so we had to drop it.

If anyone has an idea on how to get this done, we're all ears, seriously!!!

'find files faster' is not not worth 100´s Mbs, slower computer, reading an endless manual, & another program running in the background.

This is also true, we've been a bit lazy with optimizing memory. The reason is that not many people are complaining about this, plus we're mostly looking at the corporate market.

Anyway this is something we'll be looking into in the next future.

Add a 5 star rating field for individual files so that users can rate the files. this makes it easier to view preferred files. Great concept BTW. Keep up the good work.

Thanks guys, this seems an interesting suggestion. We'll see what we can do with it.

Keep in mind that you can already create tabbles named "good", "bad" and "crap" and assign them to any file.

Add a way to enter notes on files and folders

These should also be available outside of Tabbles, either as a .csv file or spreadsheet or a big text file that stores path & filename followed by comment for each file (in case a user decides to leave Tabbles, the investment in entering notes is...

I agree. Need up to 100000 files. Thanks!

That's it. I need to organize up to 100000 files.
Response from the site administrator
tabbles, 09.07.2010
True... we've been a bit greedy on this side... :-)

Anyway:
1) I promise you that 10.000 files is already a lot!
2) you want a full license but don't want to pay? We gave out some 300 free full licenses already and it's the best thing we did so far - you could be the next one! Please check this:

http://tabbles.net/forum/get-free-tabbles-license-translate-and-spread-the-word-t139.html

or just write us to offer some kind of help... it's not hard at all to get a free license from us! We're a bunch of self-funded (read: poor) developers and your 30$ wouldn't help us that much anyway! :-D

If you follow other suggestion of >NET framework being included in the download, make it optional on the install, as some people already have it!

Many people already have .NET framework (sorry for the ">NET before). And actually, of course it will take as long to download & install even if it is in your installer. BUT it would cut down on the hassle of the install, which truthfully can make...

ditch .net. reinstate the ZUI that was removed. I almost bought this software previously, but the ZUI was removed, so i did not.

Response from the site administrator
tabbles, 12.07.2010
...the ZUI may re-emerge in a different form :-)

make the program recognize the back button on mice

I have a mouse with extra buttons, forward and back. I find them useful not just in my internet browser, but throughout my computing. They greatly simplify my process of file management, to browse in my files is much quicker and smoother with the...

Give up. The idea of relational file retrieval is a good one - but a better one is clear text indexing whereby remembering a word or two in the file will get it back for you. Win Vista/7 already has this - and there are a bunch of third-party produ

Response from the site administrator
tabbles, 09.07.2010
You're so very wrong:

1) you not only need to find files but to group them (by project, customer, year, etc) and your one-two words won't do

2) what if you're working with a crazy excel spreadsheet where all you can read is numbers? What if the 1-2 words are not there cause you're looking for a picture?

3) most important: what if you're looking in a company's shared drive where those 1-2 words will pop-up 100k files where you only worked on one of them, and that file is 55,000th in the list?

This, my young padawan, is the key to will lead you to The Force.

Simple 'directory' system like in Outlook Contac or Handy Address Book. ...NO to .NET !

Official response:

if you're a lumberman, then you might be right.
But if you have an office job and handle a bunch of .doc, .xls .whatever, well, then no-no-no, that won't work.
