Re: Tags problem, sharing across a network

Thank you! I have read that text, and re-read it, many times over the past few days. I have uninstalled XYplorer on all machines and re-installed, in order to carefully go through the process EXACTLY as written there. I suspect that it would work - for sure it must do, because obviously you have tes...

Tags problem, sharing across a network

I have to conclude that the problem MAY be a bug (I stress MAY because I don't really have the experience to know). I suspect that weird interactions between XYplorer and Windows Network may be causing the issue. Anyway I am stuck. I joined XYplorer in order to share tags across a network. No other ...

Re: How to display tags in a column beside the pdf file name?

I notice that a file has appeared on all 3 computers, alongside the files I am trying to tag: "XYplorerTag.dat" The data this file contains is the tag being replicated to all machines. So ironically the tag that is not being replicated is the one which was created on the server MATTHEW-PC and is hel...

Re: How to display tags in a column beside the pdf file name?

I have got this to work (finally!) by clicking
Tags | Import Local Tags

So the issue now is whether the results of that command can be set to occur automatically,
or does one have to click manually on the different PCs in the network.

Re: How to display tags in a column beside the pdf file name?

https://imgur.com/a/A8RJhcF You have done this in a nicer way, getting the image itself into the reply, but I don't know how to do that Possibly from a security perspective I may have over-shared, but that is how I have set it up on MATTHEW-PC Despite all this sharing, the tags on MATTHEW-PC are not...

Re: How to display tags in a column beside the pdf file name?

Also this command net share is unknown to me.
Where and in what context, on what application would I use it?

Re: How to display tags in a column beside the pdf file name?

The folder IS visible to the laptop!
Didn't I tell you that I checked that it was visible?
Not sure how to share a screenshot, this thing doesn't seem to allow me load local jpgs.

Re: How to display tags in a column beside the pdf file name?

I loaded \\HUMPHREY-PC\Users\Humphrey\NewOne\SharedTags.dat on to the laptop.
No tag became visible.
So I tried (following one possible interpretation of your suggestion):
\\HUMPHREY-PC\NewOne\SharedTags.dat
I was told no such folder exists.
