Function and how it works: docFreak is a multi tabbed portable word processor to create hybride documentation, notes and todo's. Hybride means here that it supports (besides text and images) all other file types your desktop already recognizes, too. Files can be dragged and dropped (copied) to docFreak to become part of your docmentation. Documents and notes can be hyperlinked with any other file (like but not limited to: Word, Excel Pdf, Visio, Powerpoint, WinZip, 7Zip, html and text). Your (native) docFreak documents and notes as well as all files that have been copied into docFreak are stored inside 1 single file. It's inside docFreak. A tree visualizes all that's inside docFreak. That same tree can be used like the Windows Explorer to insert, copy, move, group, rename, shortcut and delete items (everything that's inside docFreak). Additionally each item from the tree can be inserted into a docFreak editor tab as an hyperlink. All or any item selected can be packaged and then shared (secured/encrypted) with anyone else that has docFreak installed. When a package is sent (for exmaple by email, Dropbox, Onedrive. Googledrive etc etc) to someone else that has docFreak installed, the package can be merged (not overwrite) with the tree of the recipient. Import of files as well as hyperlink, move, group and share package operations are drag and drop based. The advantages of this single file approach: 1) all related things are now really together 2) allows the creation of documents that can be mixed with many other file types (including audio and video) to create hybride documents and documentation 3) due to the hybride nature; hyperlinking, classification, grouping, shortcuts, copying, tagging, annotate and searching is much easier 4) handing over this type of documentation requires the transfer of a single file (instead of loosly coupled Word documents, Excel sheets, Pdf, emails, zip files etc etc) 5) the visualization by a tree inside this single file, combined with grouping/classification, hyperlinking and annotation (pop-up notes) features makes the context of each item and the documentation as a whole very easy to understand and to change 6) the tree visualization allows straight forward simple documentation based on 1 a single document up to hundred of thousends documents and other files in a complex tree structure. 7) speediness, this special single file is fast and better cached by your OS then multiple different regular files, result: loading and saving (and some tree searches) are done in a split second, no matter how big your docFreak is. docFreak: - Is a personal desktop tool - Does nothing in the cloud online but its result (a single file) can be shared and placed online in the cloud easily - Can be used as replacement for Word and Pdf but can also work with Word and Pdf - Can be used as replacement for Wiki but can also be placed inside a Wiki - Allows simple and complex document layouts - Allows other file formats to be imported with drag and drop - Stores everything inside a single container file - All objects (native docFreak documents, notes and imported files) are visualized by a tree - Has built-in help which can be removed - Let's you group, link, relate all together - Allows multiple editors open (inside tabs) - Allows standalone edits - Standalone edits are reflected inside the single container file - Allows the creation of multiple container files (like multiple Word documents) - Can start small and simple but can grow to as complex and as big as you want - Is easy to backup (1 single file) - Is easy to use and very fast. Note: It is also possible to create multiple containers (docFreak db's) as if you create multiple single Word documents. Supported operating systems Windows 64bit (7, 8, 10 and 11).

Once VLC is installed, docFreak will automatically find the VLC libs when restarted.
