I was asking about a request to have fields inside object some times ago here in forum, and I made an example talking about a old windows program called x-world.
Well, I found a nice mac program that could be a more pratical example to understand what I’d like to see in dtp 2,0, the program is called iknow & manage.
As in DT, I&M is build on object, but every object can have fields (like DT sheets, but inside the object). Text or images are fields like numbers or currency.
I&M have not scanning or pdf power, it lacks of query option and it uses template instead models, but it is a good example of what I’d like to see in DT.
The scenario (for example) is to build a object model called ‘document’, build for contain the scanning of a document, the name of the author, title, year of pubblication, origin, et ceterae, and after, use the model to catalogate different documents and have the power to build smart groups for author, or year, or origin, et ceterae. For example have a smart group with all documents ordered for year, or author or, another scenario I’d like to put the reviews of a book inside the ‘object’ book, and after could make a query/smart folder, like ‘show me object review inside object book published in 1972’.
I hope this time my message is more understandable than before.
