offers very efficient retrieval of information based on 1) a unique
non-hierarchical scheme for 'categorizing' the info and 2) on time constraints
. You can automate the categorization by searching through local and linked
external documents for key phrases or words. There are two alternatives for
viewing the collected info items, a tabular arrangement and a display as 'trees'
of categories with the info items as the 'leaves'. Other features include
password-protection, multi-user support, global text search, richly formatted
text (RTF), hyperlinks to local documents and Internet pages, various drag &
drop operations, special support for temporal data, optional alarms attached to
the stored info items, versatile print options, customizable toolbars, and much

professionals and hobbyists whose work requires an expert control over a
flood of information.So InfoHandler may well be the very thing for:

who must handle voluminous material resulting from study,
investigations, and research.

- Workgroups that want to manage their common documents
- Hobbyists, such as collectors who want to
organize their treasured collections on their computers. ,
- Anyone who surfs the Internet extensively and
accumulates a great number of links to many types of visited sites and would
even like to store some of the sites’ content .
- Anyone who sends and receives many Email or News messages
and wants to archive these smarter and more efficiently than can be done in
most Email/News programs.
For many, MDE InfoHandler will also work well as a document manager,
as an outliner, an address book, a reminder, diary, or appointment book,
and consequently as a uniform yet versatile replacement for some of these
more specialized programs.
