  • tag files, links, notes, email and more...
  • attachment notes or other items (1 to 1 linking)
  • intuitive Finder-like user interface
  • built-in note taking functionality
  • live previews
  • manual reordering
  • can be used as note manager (notes are stored as separate files)
  • more...

I really like it. The best-integrated OpenMeta tag implementation I've come by.
An integrated dedicated global tag search interface à la Spotlight would be fantastic.
Only thing that does not work for me: The "recently used" section in the tagging dialog seems somewhat buggy: Tags used do not persist between sessions and the ones that do appear do so doubly sometimes.
Still: absolutely top!

Now listed as a "dead project", by the dev, at his website (link above).

the current download link is incorrect. however, i discovered that the link to the developer works and there is a link from the developer's site to download the current version. so whoever is responsible for setting the download link should update it...

i've tried this a few times and like it so far. i need to use it more before rating. but so far so good. i like the fact that i don't have to start a standalone program to make tags and it just opens a pop-up in the finder or program i'm using and the regular spotlight search finds it...

I like this because it tags and saves the tags into the finder comment window, which is what I was looking for. But I notice a fair few glitches.

For instance, the "Tag [Finder's, or whatever's] current selection" doesn't immediately show up after the program is launched.. later (after what I don't know) it finally shows up.

Also, if you uncheck the preference "show last applied tag in the menu bar", it shows it, anyway.

Also, if you try to set a hotkey for tagging the selected item in the finder, it won't accept anything.

The "Reorganize Tags" interface is not really a tag organizing interface, though it should be.

Are there any other tagging apps that write the tags to the finder's comments?

UPDATE - The Finder comments are erased after a machine restart! What a let down!

Further update: I find that tags that I did NOT apply to a file, but which I applied to different files, get appended. This kills it - unfortunately, because I really wanted it to work!

I have been using this for months and the tags are still there after multiple restarts

Well that's weird - perhaps it behaves differently between different system configurations ... but now it won't tag anything for me, yet nothing has changed to my system.

How do you tell the version in the app? There's nothing in the Finder's "Get Info", or in any menu in the app.

Shmk

I have no idea where the version number is either quite strange really.

I have looked further into the files I have tagged and indeed a few have had the spotlight comments disappear so perhaps I spoke to soon. Sorry about that you are correct they do disappear.

In the end though for me it doesn't matter as the tags are used solely for getting Hazel to put the files where I want. Say I download or create a file I then tag it with a specific keyword drop it in a folder monitored by Hazel and then it gets sorted to the appropriate folder, once it is in the folder it doesn't matter to me if the tag is there or not but obviously if you rely on the tags for organization it is a pretty big flaw.

Something has gone wrong with TagoMan2. It used to work. Now with this latest release 2.0.4 it does nothing. The service menu does nothing in Finder. The menu bar actions do nothing. The automator actions aren't included in the download package.

The problem is most probably caused by one of tag names in the 'recently used tags' is perhaps too long, containing binary characters or is 'corrupted' in some other way. Since this list is shared by all OpenMeta application it is possible this tag came in from outside of TagoMan itself.


The solution is to 'clear the recently used tag list' in the TagoMan's preferences

All is better now. Thanks for the explanation. This is a real gem of a product!

Couldn't figure out how this thing works. Selected a file, invoked TagoMan, selected tag, clicked on "tag selection" from the actions drop-down menu, and nothing was tagged. Tried several times, and nothing was tagged. Searched if application offered a different approach. Tried whatever I could find, and nothing was tagged. Quit TagoMan, invoked tagger, selected tag, and a file was tagged.

I've finally had some time with TagoMan, and think it has a lot to offer the tagger.

First, a small point, but I'd change the name "Reorganization Manager" to just "Tag Manager." You don't really "organize" your tags there; that's were you find and modify your tags. I'd called it "Tag Manager." My two bits. :)

One of the advantages of TagoMan over say, Tagit (another fine and *free* program) is that you can tag files, e-mails, whatever, just about anywhere through either a hot-key or from the menubar. With Tagit, you have to drag the file you want to tag to the Tagit dock icon, and of course, this means Tagit is only for *files.* The scope of TagoMan is much broader and therefore more useful, which is no slight at all to Tagit.

I had no trouble finding or retaggin any of the files I tagged through the "Reorganization Manager." I'd give TagoMan a solid 4 or even 5 stars on functionality.

But I'd love to see some interface enhancements to make TagoMan even more useful. In the menubar, I'd love to see the addition of a list of tags I'm now using...either as a pop-up list in the menu, or as a menu choice that would take me to some place in the "Reorganization (Tag) Manager" where all my currently used tags are shown, as a list or cloud. Then, instead of having to do a search for tags, I could just click on a tag, and TagoMan would show me all items tagged with that tag.

Another advantage of this enhancement is this: I sometimes forget what in the heck I tagged something as. If I tagged something long ago, will it show up in "Recent Tags?" I want TagoMan to keep track of the tags I've used in a more global way, not just when I'm doing tagging by using the "recent tags" list. Another advantage in having the tags avaiable in the menubar is that I could select an item, and e-mail, or calendar event, etc, and then click on the menubar to select from a list of tags and just tag it that way. No need for me to see a dialog box unless I want to create and add a new tag.

None of these suggestions are criticisms of the program, which works great. It's just when you start using and relying on a utility like this, you begin to think of ways to speed up the process.

Anyway, kudos to the author...he or she has created a nifty free program that has become part of my workflow.

the screenshot is (was) for the old version. The new interface looks very different. I uploaded new screenshot meanwhile. Sorry for the confusion

Well.. I don't get any program window when launching the application, only when tagging stuff.

Can't wait to try this. If it works, it's nothing short of revolutionary in terms of being able to connect information all over you Mac in different programs. Right now, a lot of programs support what DevonThink Pro calls "item links -- it looks something like this in DevonThink:

x-devonthink-item://28B5537C-C625-497B-81FB-F475036F4E8D

and if you paste and then click on that link in another program, like MacJournal, or OmniFocus, or EagleFiler, or iCal, or BusyCal, you are immediately taken to that item in DevonThink. Or in MacJournal, you can do a "Copy URL of Entry" which makes a link of your entry that looks like this:

macjournal://%23InBox/Test%20Entry

In many other Mac programs, you can paste this link and then when you click on it, you are taken directly to the MacJournal entry you got the "url" of.

Using this method, I can link any item in my DevonThink Pro 2.0 database, or in MacJournal, or OmniFocus, with an entry in iCal or BusyCal and vice versa. EagleFiler does this with a "Copy Record Link" which produces this kind of paste-able link:

x-eaglefiler://open?library=~/Documents/PIM%20Data/Eagle%20Filer%20Main%20Library/Eagle%20Filer%20Main%20Library.eflibrary&recordGUID=szU02WIaRAuibS9Ez-bZCQ

So, the ability to create dynamic links is already available in good Mac programs. But TagoMan 2.0.1 promises to take this kind of functionality to another level of connectivity and integration across your Mac apps. The "front end" looks good and I love the idea of having dynamically connected data sets across multiple programs.

I can't wait to give this a thrashing this weekend and see how it works out in practice. I'll post my impressions here when I'm more familiar with TagoMan 2, but I just wanted to say that the *idea* of this program is terrific and is something I wish was built-in to the Mac OS itself (more than just having item links/urls, as we have now.) I'm really curious to see how the implementation is in real life.

The upcoming update will be able to tag DEVONthink records. Sorry about the eaglefiler and macjournal - these apps are not scriptable so I could not extract information I would need to support them.

HINT: it is possible to refer to a tag by using a link e.g. tag://MyTag. This way you can link to group of files

Thanks for the heads-up on DevonThink Pro. It's the absolute center of my information universe, so being able to link to it would be HUGE for this particular user.

Sorry to hear that EagleFiler and MacJournal can't be scripted by you....and thanks for the tip about linking to a group.

Haven't had time to thrash TagoMan 2 as I had hoped this weekend, but will certainly get to it soon.

WOW..... This is actually a really nice Tagging APP.

Select File put your TAGS on it done. The cool thing is the Tag window opens as a Save Pane within the application of the file type that is being tagged.

The one thing that I thought was needed was a Refresh button when searching for similar Tags. Great work so far... Still needs some care on some interface scroll bars...But the interface design is really well thought out and Mac like.
