    Default Aliases possible?

    my collected material is in no hierachical folder structure and i'm interested to do the "netsting" into folders/tags or something only virtual via a software. I like the way Devonthink handles aliases (but somewhat dislike Devonthink's overcrowded interface).

    My question is, is EF capeable to preserve my material in "one" place, that means in a flat hierarchy?
    To be capeable of that it has to require one of the following conditions.
    a) nested tagging or
    b) real aliases within EF

    Is this managable in EF?

    Yours, Tom

    Yes, EagleFiler supports nested tagging.

    That’s right. Tag names must be unique.

If you really do want a hierarchy, reusing names, with each record appearing in more than one place, then I think folders and aliases (not yet supported, but something I’d like to add if I can figure out how to do it) are the way to go. Then you would have the benefit of seeing and browsing this hierarchy in the Finder and other applications, too.
    Are record aliases still in the plan?
