• Information Works
The inEx-explorer (information-explorer) is a basic and general use tool for all kind of information and project management. Started with a simple and comfortable use like a notebook, up to the organization, realization and documentation nevertheless complex projects - You'll find unlimited ways to do as You want by your own wise. The new kind of flexibility allows solutions unlimited by programmers designs. It offers a diversity of simplifications and new possibilities, which can not described in a short manner.

The inEx-explorer is a freeware program for non-commercial use (Commune Edition). The Professional Edition contains a few expanded functions, useful for power-user and commercial use.
• Simple and Powerful Concept
By the simple, basic uniform concept of the items^ and item-links^, the handling will be rapidly familiar. Collecting and editing items, contents and files^ will be realised most simple and fast by using cloning^, drag&drop^ (DnD) or copy&paste (CnP) and pasteAsFile^ (text or images, ready by "one click").
An inEx-file (database^) is a single file. It offers space for lot of hundred thousands items. It's also useable from USB-drives. It can converted to a text-file or can created by such one. A database or parts of it can exchanged with other inEx-users, and inserted into other inEx-databases, by eMail, InterNet or file-copies (inEx-tree-file^), - or local between inEx-databases by Copy&Paste.
• The Program Window
The three essential parts of the program window are the tree^ (left), the list^ (right) and the list-header^ (above the list). These give an overview all the time and the possibility to move easily^ through the whole information stock.
Items from the item-type masterKey^ ('++') allow by search (e.g. '++++', '+++x', '++##' etc.) an instant quick jump to your main work positions.
You start a search^ simple by typing the wanted chars. The element-search^ allows the selection of one or several elements of the selected item for a search. A search can directed to an InterNet search machine by Shift+Ctrl+F/F3 or right click Search-Button (see main menu Settings/ Search Engine).
Drag and Drop (DnD) is possible into the tree, also into the search box, which starts a search automatical. To register (or select) a folder at the targetBox, DnD a folder (or file) into it. DnD-out is possible form the tree or list. DnD a file item to the file-manager or desktop (with Ctrl) makes a file-copy, or to the window title bar of a suitable program starts the file (without Ctrl).
An episodes buildung history function^ allows step back or forward to previous selected or worked positions. This is most practical by mouse gesture RMouseMove horizontal (available form version 1.06 on).
An alternate representation offers the padWin^, more comfortable for mainly consuming use, but also for image editing, overview and representation.
• Organisation Possibilities
Organisation possibilities are basically on one hand the item contents (item text and sub-items (childs)) itself, and on other hand the item-icons^. By the iconBar^, the icons are free selectable, and except the few functional icons, its meaning depends only by the users interpretation. And of course the linking^ to connect different places together.
An item-leading date-stamp may also an important element in many cases (dayStamp^ = Ctrl+D). Its special format (.yy.mmdd) allows purposeful searches by the sign exactly search function.
Most important in connection with the search is the labeling^ (TAGs / marks). By labels the search results fast and easy to the targets. But also relevant is the assembly of 'virtual' lists by the search results. A lot of spaced special items will be collected by the labels without any additional works. In many cases, this will spared special 'hard edited' list. What a label is, will decided only by the user itself, and through the use of principally unique words / sign combinations (e.g. 'abc::', 'h##', ...).
Using TAGs / marks is supported by the Cliché-Function^ for item-edits (local edit menu) or by the Item-Element-Search^ (Ctrl-Q) for parts of the selected item (treeView, listView and search-input).
• Files and File Management
The file-items^ are a special kind of items, part of the few functional items (see: icons^). By the associated functions you are able to realize the most of the file management jobs in an easy and fast way (file open, program start, open directory, rename file, delete file, and in combination with the targetBox^ move or copy file).
A part of the file-managemet functions is backupCopy^. It realize an optimized and fast backup of the selected targetBox directory-tree by copying only new or updated files. Several options can specify the operations.
• MP3 Files
One main focus of the file-functions are functions around the MP3-files^. By DnD a single MP3-file into the tree, there is an option to create a library-tree^ around the new file-item by the MP3-tags inside the file. The same function is available by the targetBox^-menu for already inserted files.
The MP3-tags can be edited by editing the file-header^ and then the MP3-Tags^-function, which writes back the tags into the file. This function offers also the option to create at clipboard a formated file-name as defined in a special format-file. Furthermore the useful function to create / update MP3-PlayLists^.
• Text and Image Files
Text or image files can be created by pasteAsFile^ directly from the clipboard. Filenames are generated automatical.
Referenced text files^ (flat text) will be displayed by call in the internal editor-window^. Image files^ will be displayed in the internal imageView^, and can be set as desktop wallpaper^ or displayed as imageWindows^. Several imageWindows may be saved and recalled as imageList^. These image collections can run as imageShow^ and be saved as savedImageShow^.
• InterNet-Browser and Feeds
By interNet items^ the adress can be called by your InterNet browser or the content can be downloaded by the inEx-explorer. By feed items^ RSS-feeds can be called by the inEx-explorer and noted as items.
• Compiling InterNet-Pages by one Button-Push
One other main focus is the compiling of the data to local or online useable browser pages^ (HTML). By the treePage^ function, the current tree-content will be compiled as a HTML-page by one button-push. With the optionBoard^ the kind of representation can be varies in many different ways.
More possibilities offers the pageFab^ function (Professional Edition only). With it, content can be integrated into free configured designs (example: these pages of the inEx-explorer homepage or the theHyperBox.de^^).
• More Useful Functions
Further functions: Till-Function^, Value-Function^, phoneCall^, workShop^, Report-Lists^, colorPecker^ and Vocabulary-Trainer^.
