Use the categorization to organize and find your designs. The categories specified will be available in the design edition and search dialogs.
If you work with the neoCatalog Server version, you will be able to work with server advanced options. The server version offers more categorization options to label and organizes designs and colorways.

In 'Edit Design Info' the data can be added from the list in the corresponding field.
Using the multiple selections in the Edit menu you can label multiple designs with Keywords, Collections, and Statuses.
In Advanced Search, you can search design items using the categories in the corresponding field.
Keywords and Statuses may initially look allowed to be entered with spaces. This is deceiving because when neoCatalog is restarted the part of the keyword that was typed after the space and the space itself are removed. In the attached picture, "test test" would be shown as "test" after restarting neoCatalog.
Additionally, if a keyword with a space is added this prevents neoCatalog from adding right afterward a new keyword made up of the first word of the keyword with the space. In the attached picture, "test" would not be added right after entering "test test". If a compound keyword is required, the recommended character is underscored (_).
Use keywords to label designs to have an easier organization and search. The available default keywords are:
Floral, Ethnic, Abstract, Stripes, Tropical, Camouflage, Nature, Border, Geometric, Animals, Birds, Checks, Paisleys, Texture, Animal Skins, Tribal, Folkloric.
To create a new one, simply type the name of a keyword and press enter to save it. Use commas as separators to add multiple keywords. To delete keywords, click on 'x' in the keyword name.
This option is made to replace or rename keywords in neoCatalog. Choose the keyword you want to modify in the list and type the name of the keyword you want to replace or modify. Once clicking on 'Change keyword', then it will be modified and even the designs containing the keyword will use the modified or replaced version of the keyword.
Use keywords to organize designs by collection to have an easier organization and search. To create a new one, simply type a new name for a collection and press enter to save it. Use commas as separators to add multiple collections. To delete the collection, click on 'x' in the name.
Use status to define the different states of designs. To create a new one, simply type a new name and press enter to save it. Use a comma as a separator to add multiple, to delete click on 'x' in the name. You can create and apply a status color from the same page. You can use the color picker, random gradient colors, or type RGB hex values like '#FFFFFF' or CSS names like 'blue'.
Once the status is categorized in designs, then the thumbnail's circle with the corresponding status colors is shown. The status name is shown in a tooltip when moving over the circle.
Extra module feature to work with another design section area, that must be enabled in the application modules. To create a new one, simply type a new name and press enter to save it. Deleting sections can be done from the "Remove Section" below the Section name field. When deleting sections that contain designs, then the designs will be moved back to the designs view.
In version 3.16.8 and lower, deleting sections is restricted, and can be done from admin in advanced preferences as long as the sections contain designs. First, remove the designs from the section you want to delete or move the designs to another available section. Deleting all sections is restricted and requires one section to exist.
Trademarks & Sub-trademarks
Use marks to define brands and sub-brands for designs. To create a new one, simply type a new name and press enter to save it. Use a comma as a separator to add multiple, to delete click on 'x' in the name.
Different methods of superposition methods for coloring that alter can be applied to the design information. To create a new one, simply type a new name and press enter to save it. Use a comma as a separator to add multiple, to delete click on 'x' in the name.
Tags are label words that you can add to the design making them easier to group and find. For example, you could add the
blue tag to all designs related to blueish colorways. That would allow you to easily see, display, and search for related designs. Enable tags in modules to start working with tags.
There are two ways to work with tags:
- The manual option will label your designs with tags that allow you to search and identify the design. To create a new one, simply type a new name and press enter to save it. Use a comma as a separator to add multiple, to delete click on 'x' in the name.
- The automated tagging option using Clarifai AI will index your designs and detect if similar designs in your neoCatalog exist. It allows you to search images with two options: How to tag designs with Clarifai AI
