File Manipulation

RecMind use excel like mechanism to handle files. Each file is combined of multiple sheets, one sheet is actually an editable canvas. And you can create links between different sheets for navigations.

We do not use tabs to organize opened files, instead, there is a list with all the editing files inside and you can filter them using keywords, or navigation using simple button clicks.

Sheets of file can be added or removed. But there must be at least one sheet for one file. Copy and paste is availiable cross different sheets. Sheets within one file are organized in tabs,you can easily switch between them.

Sheets can be exported in different formats(.PNG, .JPEG, .JPG, .SVG, .PDF etc). Choose the right option for your needs.
