Generate Index of PDF

Simple, flexible, powerful file tagging, right in Finder.

Current version: 2.6

For Mac OS X 10.5–10.8

Utilities

Apple finally introduced its own, thorough integration of tagging in Finder in OS X 10.9. It is definitely better to use that than Tag Folders on OS X 10.9 and above. Users of older versions of OS X may still find Tag Folders useful.

In recent versions of OS X, Apple changed the behaviour this relied upon. You’ll just have to do the task from within Dashboard.
