Projects / Paperbox


Paperbox is a document browser. It lets you nicely view your ebooks, office and text documents and organize them by tags. Relying on Tracker, it is able to instantly discover all documents on your desktop and present them in a convenient way. Tags and other metadata are shared across all Tracker-based applications.

        Release Notes: Additional MIME types are included in the index: all previously missing OpenDocument formats with text, AbiWord, Microsoft Office, PostScript, and plain text files. Tags can be bundled into categories for easier organising. A simple editor is included. All communication with Tracker is asynchronous, preventing the program from hanging while Tracker is busy. This release responds to external tag changes. If you tag a document in tracker-search-tool, PaperBox will immediately show or hide the tag(s). There are important bugfixes and many translations.
