Making progress

DEVONthink To Go 2.0b10

We promised to keep you updated on our progress with DEVONthink To Go 2.0 and our new sync technology. Two days ago we released beta 10 to our beta testers. The last new beta testers received their Test Flight invitations today. The next betas are going to see the addition of a second sync mode. It downloads only the metadata at first and the actual documents on demand or automatically when needed. This will make it possible to take out even larger databases and leave...

Tuesday tip: Use Clip to DEVONthink with Opera

Opera icon

For those of you who are using the Opera browser for your web searching, it is possible to add our Clip to DEVONthink extension to it. We don’t have an Opera-specific version but with an Opera add-on, you can use the Chrome extension. Check out the Download Chrome Extension add-on. If you have used our clipping extension in other browsers, you’ll be right at home. If you haven’t, you can now enjoy quick captures from the web into DEVONthink from Opera. (Note:...

Tuesday Tip: Switching from MacJournal

MacJournal To DEVONthink_Featured

We had a MacJournal user contact us, wanting to switch to DEVONthink. While we have no control over how easy or hard this may be, we took a look at what options there are. Nicely, the MacJournal folks have simple but useful export options. (We always applaud when developers resist the urge to lock in someone’s data.) You can export single journal entries, or if you have a more elaborate journal system, you can export entire journals. Metadata is exported...

Tuesday tip: Computers and your eyes


Today it’s normal for most people to stare at computer screens all day long, something that was unbelievable just 25 years ago. Whether we’re shopping online, chatting and tweeting, or working in our DEVONthink databases, we spend a lot of time in the light of our screens. If you are experiencing headaches, blurred vision, watery eyes, or have trouble getting to sleep, here are a few simple tips for you. When ambient light levels are too low we have a...

Tuesday tip: Local database favorites


DEVONthink’s sidebar allows you to keep your favorite databases always at hand. If you want to have something similar inside a database you can easily set it up yourself like this: Make a group named e.g. Favorites; maybe add a label so that it better stands out. Now replicate groups that you want to make a favorite into Favorites. Double-click a favorite and it opens in a separate window. Alternatively you can use tags: Tag your favorites, e.g., with Favorite....

Tool tip: Need to move a file? Yoink it!

Yoink Icon

There are many times we need to move a file from one place to another. On Macs with larger screens, you can easily open and arrange windows to drag and drop between them. However, if you’re on a laptop or don’t have the luxury of using a second monitor, this is often not an easy task. Often we resort to using Spaces in Mission Control to give ourselves as much space per application as we can. This can make file moving...

DEVONagent 3.9.4 updates plugins, filters more accurately

Searching Stack Overflow

Today’s update for all editions of DEVONagent brings updated plugins and search sets. Better filters improve your search experience. They thin out advertising, analytics, trackers, and links to translation services more accurately so you don’t have to. In addition, clearing the search results or switching to private browsing clears the system-wide find pasteboard now too. This makes sure no unwanted private data is left behind if you don’t want to. And finally, the update improves the naming of copied or captured links and...
