Updates are under way! 😉
New features, easier and faster to realize things and indeed bug fixes.
FileOne and DocOne for macOS/OSX have been updated to v2.7.8j
Check the fixes made for Linix and Windows (are the same fixes for macOS).
FileOne and DocOne for Linux and Windows have been updated to v2.7.8j
a fix for DocOne and FileOne for downloading large or very small files.
a fix for FileOne where too much redundant white space is shown when send to for example an outlook.com mail address (emails where filled with too much white space/empy lines). This fix might also have positive impact on other email clients and services.
- The fixes for macOS are now available too.
- MiniOne and DocOne do not have an email client.
- MiniOne does not have a downloader (except for the language spell check files).
Why would I use it? Everything is fine I already work with!
During the development of FileOne, DocOne and MiniOne I did not realize that it would be that difficult to persuade people to try or even use one of the aforementioned products. After all the way I work is good enough you might think. Why should I switch or change the way I work? I don’t have a problem you might think.
FileOne is an organizer that differs from other organizers (multi platform for Linux, Windows and macOs, hybrid documentation and notes (with audio, music and video), email client, contact manager, images, simple encryption, sharing facilities, internal web browser and download manager, free form treeview that can be structured the way you want, storage engine, watchdir for auto imports, single file DB for all data, fast (even with hundreds of thousands of objects) and small).
Note: I will use FileOne in the next text but it applies in many ways to MiniOne and DocOne too.
During talks with other people who are reluctant or hesitating trying or using FileOne, the following reasons not to try/use FileOne, came up:
- it can do too much
- it changes they way I work
- the tools I work with are fine, I do not need anything else.
To begin with: FileOne is an organizer. There are many organizers but of course FileOne differs from them. The fact that there are organizers means there is a market for them. EverNote and OneNote are 2 of the biggest commercial examples. There is no reason to think that there is no place for FileOne.
Let me address the “wrong” reasons not to use FileOne.
1) it can do too much
This feeling comes by when you look at the functions it gives you. The core reason why FileOne was developed is indeed to do much more then any other tool but not just for the sake of it. Think different: why would you use 12 programs not really integrated when you can do it with just 1 where all is really integrated instead. It sounds like: I can choose to travel to Rome using 12 different transport services or just 1 and I chose for 12 different ones……. well…. that doesn’t make sense.
FileOne does not do more than all the 12 different tools you use today. As a matter of fact, those tools can do much more then FileOne when you sum all their functions up…… and you are not complaining about them! They all combined do too much! I know that from each tool you use today, you only use between 5 or 10% on average (Word, Excel and your web browser are examples of such products).
2) It changes the way I work
It does not change the way you work with the 2 exceptions mentioned below:
a) because it has real integration of all functions it does let you work faster, opens less windows, lets you search less for files with your file manager and lets you relate, group, hyperlink, email and share data easier.
b) files/data stored inside FileOne can be changed with their native programs. For example a Word file can be changed with Word and saved. During the save it is saved automatically inside your FileOne DB (not your file system as seen by your file manager).
For the rest: you know already how to drag, drop, move, select, copy, insert, format (Bold, Italic, Underline, indent, outdent etc etc) objects (like files) and text since that does not differ from Linux, macOS and Windows applications (albeit inside a single portable file).
3) the tools I work with are fine, I do not need anything else
Mankind did not came where it is today without trying new things.
You are not forced to try something new like FileOne. If you are convinced that your tools are fine AND if you do not want to know whether you can work easier and faster or not then do not read any further and keep using your tools you are happy with. This is about Think Different too. You cannot know that the way you work is awkward without trying something new like FileOne.
As you can see, it really is not that different and yes you might benefit from using it.
Think different Hints and Tips
Think Different is about trying to change the mindset on how we use office tools for the desktop.
Why would you use 12 different not really integrated programs/tools if you can do it with One desktop tool using a single superfast portable File.
For example: do you want to travel to Rome in 12 different ways or travel in a single straightforward way?
Most people want to use a single straightforward way and that is exactly what this is all about.
These are some hints and tips for using MiniOne, DocOne or FileOne (so called Treegonized products available at https://www.treegonizer.com).
These 3 products are centered around creating portable and secure platform independent (for Linux, macOS and Windows) Docs and Notes combined with Images, Multimedia (audio, video and playlists) and regular Office files (like Word, Excel, PowePoint and PDF files). Don’t tell me that you still use Word!!
The most simple version (MiniOne/M1) gives a desktop tool for making project or technical documentation or the use as a knowledgebase for personal (fun/homework or study) or for business needs.
FileOne/F1 (the most advanced extended version) is a desktop tool that allows you to do even more and combines Notes, Documents, Contacts, Email, Calendar, Web browsing, Images/Pictures, Screenshots, Music tracks, Online Radio Stations, Video’s and regular Office files
On top of that it allows you to:
- easily (the way you want) structure,
- easily hyperlink and relate Notes, Docs, Office files with each other and/or multimedia and emails)
- easily encrypt,
- easily edit, view, play and share (secure)
all that same data in a very simple and easy to understand manner.
The hints and tip
- Use the New buttons on each tab to create a new corresponding object (Document, Note, Email etc etc) and to Activate the Editor inside the select tab (or use shortcut keys)
- Use a right mouse click inside the Treeview, the Active Editor and the built-in web browser to see the menu functions available
- Use the Main Search Field (at the upper left corner) to search for built-in help topics or for anything inside your data). For example search for Keyboard Shortcut to get a list of shortcut keys you can use inside the program.
- Use the Ctrl-Shift-K keyboard shortcut to quickly create a keyword tag for the selected item inside the Treeview. You can then instantly switch to the items you have tagged (no matter how big the tree is) from the Main Search Field at the uper left
- To create a shortcut (a bookmark) of the current selected Treeview item press Ctrl-Shift-B (you can then copy and move that to any location inside the treeview as much as you want)
- Use drag and drop to create hyperlinks (drag items from the Treeview to the Active Editor to insert hyperlinks at the place the cursor was most recently)
- Use drag and drop from your file manager to the Active Editor to:
A) copy the data into your DB and B) create a hyperlink automatically
- Change the looks with Ctrl-G-5 shows shows the editor and view tab only (without buttons) as a less distractive GUI
- Ctrl-G-A shows All back again
- Play with Ctrl-G-1 up to Ctrl-G-6 to see what dialogs you can get, remember that Ctrl-G-A show All back again
- Use Ctrl-Shift-U to insert an URL inside the Active Editor
- Use Ctrl-Y to delete the selected item from the Treeview
- Use drag and drop from your file manager to the Active Editor to insert images
- Use the Open link under mouse inside the built-in web browser to open a link that does not open (as a pop-up)
- Use drag and drop from your file manager to the Main Search Field to copy files and data into your DB
- Hover your mouse over buttons and fields and wait a second to get Help for the field or button your mouse is
- Download your fav videos using the built-in web browser (right mouse click inside neutral space of the Youtube page and select Try download of playing video… and be patient)
- Use the ws: command inside the Main Search Field to search the internet instantly (for exampe ws: Disco Music will give you the Google search results inside the built-in web browser for everything related to Disco Music
- Record from your fav online radio stations into seperate music tracks using the Record button
- Use Ctrl-Shift-M to email the select item inside the Treeview
- Select the Bookmark this page from the right click pop-up menu inside the built-in web browser to bookmark the webpage you have open
- Use drag and drop/cut and paste inside the Treeview to structure the Treeview the way you want.
- Use the Enable Plugins option (from the right click pop-up menu) inside the built-in web browser to watch movies and play audio tracks
- Use the Browse less restrictive option (from the right click pop-up menu) inside the built-in web browser to allow cookies and enable plugins.
- Insert a local file or web URL using Ctrl-Shift-U inside the Active Editor
- Generate instantly PDF files from the Active Editor/Viewer and or built-in web browser using the PDF button
- Use Ctrl-F7 and Ctrl-Alt-S to create and save a selective screencut from the current webpage inside the built-in web browser
- Share your Treeview and corresponding data like Docs, Notes and multimedia (secure/encrypted) with anyone else using MiniOne, DocOne or FileOne by creating a package (use the orange F1 button for that).
- Encrypt selective data by a single mouse click (just check the Encrypt function on each tab available).
- Exchange your data between Linux, MacOS and Windows easily (edit and read the same data on Linux, MacOS and Windows).
- Easily make backups of your data by copying a single file (your MiniOne, DocOne or FileOne.DB) to a USB drive, the cloud or anything else that can store data files.
- Easy Store a few dozens up to hundred thousands of files and objects into your single file DB
- Relate, hyperlink and shortcut your data together fast, easy and instantly.

Release of new versions
Version 2.7.8g has been released for Linux, macOS and Windows.
—-Update 18 sept 2017 v278g (MiniOne, DocOne and FileOne)
- Updated youtube downloader to version 2017-09-15 in order to download movies again.
- Updated the GUI such that M1, D1 and F1 all display well on low res screens and high res (4K) screens.
- Removed a bug (related to high res screens) that did not properly show Music tracks tab.
- Removed a bug (related to high res screens) that did not properly show Online Radio Streams tab.
- Removed a bug where generating a .pdf from an image without a document crashed the program.
- Removed a bug where trying to edit an empty document from the View tab crashed the program.
Note: F1, D1 and M1 are only in 64bit versions available.
MiniOne, DocOne and FileOne are developed with only 1 personal goal in mind. Squash the number of programs to simultaneous work with into a single easy to use program. That was the basis to start development. Additionally during development I added 4 more goals.
- The program must be such that has more integrated functions (work together) than any other program out there (on the Internet).
- The program must be scalable (must easily deal with small amounts of data and huge amounts of data while keeping fast).
- The program must be able to run on different OS platforms Linux, Microsoft Windows and Linux.
- Look and feel as well as data exchange between the different OS platforms must be flawlessly and transparent.
And during that I was faced with the competition, they had/have software for online and mobile devices like smart phones and tablets. I focused on desktop programming in the first place because the development environment (tools to program M1, D1 and F1) did not allow me to program for Android and iOS. Besides that, most people use a laptop to do serious work and not a mobile device (despite what many people do want us to believe). How many people have you seen making complete documents, sheets and emails with attachments on a mobile device? Sure that will change and some of us do use the phone or tablet more prominent than a laptop or notebook but look around….. the real world for real serious work is laptop or notebook based.
And tell me what good does it do to have such CPU power on a mobile device when we only use a HTML window to the cloud and leave all work power inside the cloud? Exactly!! We have power beyond our needs on our mobile devices UNLESS we use it. I’m not a fool so I’m also working in desktop programs for the mobile devices.
Yes desktop programming for the mobile devices to store data offline inside your tablet or phone, that is my vision. But though working in it, it takes time and I’m using tools that not many have used world wide for mobile development.
So for now what can you do with M1, D1 and F1? What are the real differences?
The base for all 3 programs is that they can be used to create, store and view Notes, documentation and images. All data inside M1, D1 or F1 can be hyper linked to each other and all data can be encrypted on a per object basis.
Base functions for M1, D1 and F1
- Create popup notes.
- Create documents.
- Store images.
- Store office files.
- Use a Treeview to structure your data (notes, documents, images and office files).
- Hyperlink functions to make Notes and Docs have hyperlinks to each other or any other object (like office files) inside M1, D1 or F1.
- Sharing facilities to share parts of the Treeview and corresponding data with other users of M1, D1 and F1.
MiniOne (M1) is:
Notes, Documents, Images, Office Files
DocOne (D1) is:
MiniOne + multimedia (moives, audio, music) + web browser + downloader
FileOne (F1) is:
DocOne + Contacts + Email + Agenda/Calendar
MiniOne does not have multimedia, does not have a web browser, does not have contact, email and agenda/calendar.
DocOne does not have contact, email and agenda/calendar.
FileOne does have them all.
