This program has a lot of features but and good potential to be a great program if you are trying to eliminate the file folder paradigm to a more modern computer oriented file system but one you can find documents in easier. Just started trying to use it for the first time in Lion, so I am not sure what may be compatibility issues, but some things do not work properly.

For example, I want the to ask to Tag files saving to my documents folder (folders, gone) to make sure everything is tagged. Otherwise, you might have problems finding you files fast or being able to use smart folders and/or Hazel to organize them in some fashion.

Also, this may not be a Tags program issue, but their supplied Automator workflows (example "Ask for Tags") do not work and they are crucial in using Tags the way I need it to work in order to automate using Tags. Running these workflows in Automator shows several errors that may be related. The dialog window does come up and you can enter tags, but they are not written to the file.

The latest release is said to me for Lion compatibility, but I still have the same problems.

So far, the developer is not responding.

If anyone can shed light on the Automator issues, thanks in advance for your help. Without this, Tags I only marginally useful.

The program is old code that also supports the PPC Macs. It will not run on the new Mac OS Lion. It also lacks iPad/iPhone/iPod support. In my view, this program has become too old and too high in cost to justify.

I have used various programs, most purchased, for evaluation and search for the best of these types and I this one is the top of my list. For important documents I wan to save where I can quickly find them I print them as PDF to MacJournal. Plus, I can export any document to PDF anywhere else I need to have it. With Dropbox storing the data it keeps MacJournal in sync with all mo iOS devices and easy to access from any of them wherever I am. Full stars on those features.

The only negative I have found is that it does not support the zoom feature on any iOS device. Therefore, if you have a PDF document displayed on an iPad or iPod touch and the print is too small to read then you have no way of zooming out or enlarging it can be read (let me know if there is a way that I have not discovered). This is a bad omission for iOS devices since any other program I have does support document zoom (GoodReader for example) and zoom is a critical function on most small screen devices of any kind.

I use it constantly and is one of my most favorite utilities. If you do any kind of work where you need several windows open and viewable at the same time, especially with multiple monitor setups, this is something you need. I quickly learned the keyboard shortcuts I use 90% of the time. For the other seldom used functions it provides, they are only a click away in the menu bar. The detail of preferences, such as setting desired boarder space is genius.

It is one of those programs you needed but did never knew it. That is why I am writing this review. Everyone using several windows/monitors should to try it. On a Mac, it makes the Windows OS's stupid implementation of "windows within windows" just plain juvenile.

With this plug-in and the menu it provides I love it. However, I hate it because it causes Safari to crash frequently. The Apple report it generates specifically identifies this plug-in. I have uninstalled it several times and installed the latest version with the same behavior, so I have given up totally on his most wanted plug-in. I am running the latest version of Mac OS 10.6.2

I would avoid this program like the plague. It has corrupted three of my hard drives and could not bring any of them back to life. I had to use the Apple Disk Utility to get them back working. Stick with it, you are safer.

Nice program for a simple task and does the job well. My only complaint is their registration. You do not get a number, but a special file to register the program, so if you get a new computer or hard drive and you go to install it, you will not have anything to register it even though you paid for the program. This is a form of DRM that some programmers are adopting as their registration policy. Just like DRM for music, it stinks and users should protest this form of control for what you and paid.

Works great, but has view issues. It only activates on the main monitor and is not active on a second monitor. When you are using spaces and you show all of them to, lets say, move a document window from one space to another, you can accidently grab the curtain and it moves. It should stay put in this mode. When activated, it shows the current application documents but hides any others. I want it to hide just the desktop.
