referencing software (endnote x1)

Recommended Posts

i am looking for a way to organize documents and other files using tags. in xp. any ideas?

it seems like keywords can be added to file properties, but this is a bit tedious to do manually right-clicking every file. is there any third-party software that can do this? creating virtual folders based on sets of keywords that auto-refresh... thats the thing i really want. (and no i dont want to use the mac os or 'upgrade' to vista. :rolleyes: )

endnote can access various online databases (like university library catalogs and such) and parse the info into bibliography cards. it also has the ability to attach files (docs, pdfs of articles or books) to these cards. it seems like the obvious next step would be an auto-rename and auto-tagging function that would append keyword metadata to the file and rename it according to whatever format ("author, title. year" etc.). does anyone know of anything out there that can do this? it would be just so awesome.

virtual folders

Although you don't want to "upgrade" that specific feature has been added in Vistas Explorer File Manager and is called "Stacks".

You may want to check out xplorer2 it supports "scrap containers" and "extended file information"


As for editing the metadata here are some free apps I found, but have not tried (yet):
