Tabbles is not without issues. The first is pretty unavoidable: You need to be proactive and diligent about tagging files. If tagging is done haphazardly, the utility of Tabbles plummets. Auto-tagging rules can help with this, but that's a second issue: The flexibility of the rules is limited. I cannot create a single rule to tag .doc and .docx files — each is its own rule. I can't set rules based on file contents or on file attributes beyond name and disk location. Third, as Yellow Blue Soft is a small company, things like documentation and website maintenance tend to lag behind actual development work.
I like Tabbles. It fills a needed niche for me, and for any user who works on sprawling projects that cross many file types and directories. It is well worth checking out if your daily work fits that description.
