Re: Shared Tag File Size, 2nd try

Ahh... Yes! there's someone alive out there! Thank you, RalphM. Testing it out is a good idea. Up until now I have just been very conservative with the comment tags that I add to my files... and during the writing of this sentence I just thought of my next question to post. But anyway I will try tha...

Shared Tag File Size, 2nd try

Well I asked this question a while back and there was no response so I'm trying again because I would really like to know this : "Ok so now that we're running XY with the the auto-refreshing shared tag database, and thank you - it works wonderfully, is there any potential that the shared tag databas...

Shared Tag File Size

Ok so now that we're running XY with the the auto-refreshing shared tag database, and thank you - it works wonderfully, is there any potential that the shared file will become so big and cumbersome that it will start to affect XY's performance? I mean, what are the limitations? What if I wanted all ...

Searching for Extra Tags

Wonderful that I was pointed to the fabulous feature of Extra Tags, and that more Extra Tags were added. Thank you! Now about searching for them... Since I don't have regular tags on any of the files on my system because I am managing multiple users and we are sharing a common tag database that is o...

ADP Command Line Switch Broken?

Re: Custom Columns, Tags Labels....

Yes! This is exactly what I intended. It is important that I make the system easier to use for the not-so computery guys. Being able to add the machine attribute to the file on the fly is perfect. I also made a "Material" column using the same method. As you can see I don't use the tree, so I have p...

Re: Custom Columns, Tags Labels....

So I tried your suggestion, I think I may have the wrong grammar in my script:

return tagitems("tags",HAAS VF-3 , <cc_item>);

whereas HAAS VF-3 is the machine.

Re: Custom Columns, Tags Labels....

I haven't tried your suggestion yet but to answer your first question, yes, it would be ideal for the column to be named "Machine." I organize our system based on year. We have a "2019" folder, a "2018" folder, a "2009" folder, and so on going back to 1992. When I am looking for a suspected file, I ...

Custom Columns, Tags Labels....

So I'm trying to figure out the best way to add the property "Machine" to certain files that is visible in a column and also searchable. I am a machinist and I manage our CNC department's file system. My first thought was tags or labels. But we only have 7 CNC machines so then I thought about custom...

Labels and Tags confusion

I've been trying to better figure out how tags and labels work and what the difference is between them. I don't understand what it means to "add" a tag to a file/folder and to "set." I did some experimenting by adding/applying some tags to a couple files and then saving the tag data using the 'saves...

Re: Settings and Configuration

Oh I see so, just saving my config doesn't save my tags etc. Gotcha.
Thanks

Settings and Configuration

So what exactly is the difference between saving your "Settings" and saving your "Configuration?" I haven't found any topics concerning this in the help section. Thanks

Re: Tabsets not loading on startup v19.50.0100

The upper tab was pointing to network, the lower to the local drive. But the problem mysteriously disappeared after a while :ninja:
Thanks for the response!
