The evaluation of keyboard shortcuts has been completely revised and is now compatible with the security settings of macOS 10.15.
macOS 10.15 changed the default paths of applications. This is now taken into account.
In addition to the default paths you can now add additional search paths in the settings (please make sure that these are also included in Spotlight).
When you open the application for the first time, some standard tags will be created to help you get started with the configuration.
Numerous internal speed optimizations and bugfixes (more than 30% of the code has been rewritten or reworked)
Better adaptation to multi-screen operation
Drag'n'drop files and directories into Start to open them with the selected application
Complete revision of the configuration
Redesign of the main window - the individual entries are now a bit larger to make drag'n'drop easier
Select an alternative browser to open folders
Tags drop down menu is now based on substrings, so tags can be found more easily
Unused/empty tags are removed at the end of the program
Context menu for quick customization of entries directly in the main window.
