FAQ, Tips and usage hints

Create Sub-Tags

In addition to normal tags, you can also create sub-tags. This allows you to sort your applications even better.

You create a sub-tag like a normal tag by assigning it to an application. All you have to do is separate the parts with a | sign.

Example: You want to sort your graphics programs with the tag "Graphic Applications". However, you want to have all the graphic filters and additional tools with a corresponding sub-tag.

All your graphics programs have assigned the tag "Graphic Applications" in the configuration. You give the graphic filters the tag "Graphic Applications|Effects" and the tools the tag "Graphic Applications|Tools".


How to add files and folders to start

Files and directories can be added to start very easily. Open the settings of start and switch to the data area. Now you can simply drag' n' drop the files and directories you want into the data area and then tag them or add a comment.

start does not show all available apps

start uses spotlight to find existing applications and react to changes. This means that spotlight must be active under macOS (this is the default setting of macOS). In rare cases spotlight may not index all applications. In this case it helps to rebuild the spotlight index.
