Smart Folders can find a file anywhere on your computer. Regular folders let you organize your files with ease. Tag Folders do both.
Drop any file onto a Tag Folder, and it will immediately be tagged to match the Tag Folder’s search criteria. Open the Tag Folder, and every file with that tag appears in a Finder window, available for use.
Making a new Tag Folder is as simple as clicking on the “New Tag” Tag Folder. Drop files onto “New Tag” to automatically make a new Tag Folder to contain them.
Modify your Tag Folder’s search criteria to make it as simple or as complex as you like. It will add all the specified tags to the files dropped onto it. It can even remove unwanted tags at the same time.
Tag Folders can nest inside one another. Simply drop one Tag Folder onto another to create a hierarchy of Tag Folders.
Nested Tag Folders inherit the tags of their parents, and pass them on to their children. Add your “Project 1” Tag Folder to your “Work” Tag Folder, and any files added to “Project 1” will also appear in “Work”.
Tag Folders uses the emerging OpenMeta tagging standard for Mac OS X, which makes one set of tags universally accessible to all apps that support them. Tag Folders works seamlessly with all OpenMeta apps.
Tag Folders can also write copies of tags to Spotlight Comments to maintain compatibility with legacy tagging applications that don’t yet support OpenMeta, such as TagBot, Leap (v 1.1), Punakea, the Quicksilver File Tagging plugin, and more. You may also define a custom syntax to suit your needs.
