When Cardbox for Windows first came out, the Windows boom was just beginning. We have watched how Windows conventions have evolved and we have observed how people actually use Cardbox. Here are some of the results of our research:
Workspaces keep your projects organised but separate. Whenever you open a workspace it remembers what databases it had open last time and the exact state of your browsing and searches. You can have several workspaces open at a time. Databases are not restricted: if you need to, you can have the same database open in several workspaces.
For even easier access, you can put workspaces into the Windows Start menu.
You can now customise the toolbar, rearranging the buttons or adding new ones of your own. You can also add special menu items of your own, and you can add keyboard shortcuts to call up actions of your own (such as playing a specific macro).
You can apply your customisations to your computer as a whole or to individual projects, databases, and formats, so that (for example) a toolbar button is only visible in the database to which it applies.
Cardbox's online help is deeper and more extensive than ever before. For example:
