Tuesday Tip: Linking to other Documents from a Record

At the moment, records in DEVONthink Pro store only plain text contents. So, hypertext linking is not available. Here’s a workaround: Add a new column called ‘Link To’. In that column type or paste in  the name of a document that you would like to refer to from the record. To make the ‘jump’ just select the text string and press  ‘Command-/’. That will initiate a search in DEVONthink. For quick response,  limit the search to Name. Note that multiple documents can be  referenced in a Record. Just adopt a convention such as delimiting by comma, semicolon or slash to separate the names of documents in the  ‘Link To’ column of the record.
