Drag And Drop

Vago supports drag-and-drop in every table widget. This means you don't need to click the "Add" button to add new files (or folders) to a table. You can drag the files with the mouse and drop them in the table, and they will be added automatically.

Tooltips

All of the tables that appear in Vago contain tooltips for their cell contents. This is especially useful for checking if the contents are correct without resizing the table columns.

Context menus

The main program conversion tables support contextual menus which can be very helpful. To access them, right-click on the contents of the table.
