Up to the newly released 1.1, I haven’t used tags. The flat structure didn’t fit my needs, so I went with nested folders instead. Although a bit limiting, not having the same content in different places, it still suited me better.
With nested tags, I can have both the hierarchical approach as well as access to the same item from different places. This makes it possible to store all items in a single folders, instead of many.
Now to my question (and I’m new to the Mac world, so the answer might be obvious): What are the limits of EF/OS X in terms of number of documents in a single folder? Is it better if I continue to make some sorting into different folders, just not so granular as before, or can I more or less have a single dropbox for everything?
