Highlights in IMatch Anywhere 2019

Security Updates

All 3rd party components and programming libraries have been updated to the latest version to incorporate all available security updates.

New FileLens Feature

This awesome new feature allows you to edit metadata (title, description, rating, label, …), keywords and IMatch categories comfortably directly in your web browser.

IMatch Anywhere WebViewer FileLens

The FileLens arranges Metadata, Keywords and Categories into separate views. This helps casual users and also works great on smaller devices.

Input aides like recently used lists, thesaurus access and quick input controls speed up your workflow and improve overall data quality.

Working with Keywords

Adding keywords to files is one of the most common operations. The keyword editor in the FileLens offers a very convenient environment for this task.

Auto-suggestions from the IMatch thesaurus while typing, recently used keywords and user-defined favorites are just some of the elements available in this view. Access to the full IMatch keyword thesaurus hierarchy, copying metadata between files, changing keywords and other metadata for individual or all selected files are other key features.
