This thread is to help Morgantao test and give the feedback to him for his new tool
This is a resume of the last part of this other thread Morgantao´s New tool for custom organizing and managing FF library!!!!
Please Download the tool FROM HERE
After some time (please look below if there is a newer version BEFORE downloading this one)
HOW TO LOAD THE FF FILTERS INSIDE THE TOOL
If you do not know WH ERE your filters are please look at this thread
Where are the downloaded Filter Forge filters located physically?
Simply they are located here --> C:\Users\SpaceRay\AppData\Roaming\Filter Forge 3\System\
To reach for this you can use %APPDATA% or opening FF, sel ect one filter and use the keys CTLR and L and then it will open the Library folder and only have to go up one step to the main System folder
IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT THIS VERSION POSTED HERE
Before you get too excited, here's a few things you have to know:
Any individual using the tool provided here does so at their own risk. I, nor anyone else provides no warranty, expressed nor implied, and the tool is provided as-is. Scared ya, didn't I
You need .Net 4.0 framework installed to run this tool. It's freely available from MicroSoft.
Please note that you will lose your database from the previous version, as the database is now a little dofferent. Be warned, this may happen in the next few versions, as we're experimenting with the best and fastest way to make the database.
Remember this is not even in alpha stage, so bear with us
You can change a folder name by clicking it and pressing F2.
To add a folder, press the Add Folder button at the bottom left of the window.
You can see which folders contain the filter in the "Folders:" field. To add\remove a filter to\from folders, click the Add\Remove Containing Folders button, located on the far right of the "Folders:" field.
Clicking that button will open a new window, with a list of all your folders. Each folder has a chackbox next to it. If you check the checkbox, it adds the filter to that folder. Uncheck to remove the filter from the folder.
The search bar now works! You can search by Filter name, Author name, Description and Keyworkds (both default AND your own).
Right now there's no way to remove\delete a filter or a folder fr om the catalog.
Adding filters may take some time. Adding 8725 filters took around 1 minute on my machine
The filters are organized in fr om oldest to newest in the online library. That means that filters that were uploaded to the online library today will be at the bottom of the list. There's no way right now to rearrange the filters.
The catalog arrives with just the default filters that ship with Filter Forge. You can add filters wit the "Add FFXML files" button at the top left of the window.
You have to be online to see the previews of the filters.
You can see the default preset at 600x600 pixels, but the remaining 8 presets are thumbnail only.
Factory keywords and Description are the keywords and the description found on the online library, as written by the author.
In User Keywords field you can add free text. Use it to add your own keywords to help you find what you're looking for.
Rating lets you rate the filters 0 to 5 stars.
There's no save button. You don't need it. The tool saves everything automatically.

Sorry to ask, but I am curious to know why it seems that nobody else is using this tool, or at least has not made any comment about it in the forum.
Please, could be possible to know:
Why are you not using it ?
