DEVONthink offers a variety of methods to add your data to the inbox, from simple drag-and-drop to the Services menu and the bookmarklet. Power user and forum member ‘bartekb81’ has now even written a native Safari plug-in that inserts a Save to DEVONthink menu command into Safari’s File menu. It saves any web page you are viewing as PDF into your inbox.
Installation is still a bit clumsy as you need to fix file permissions, so here is how you do it:
- Download the plugin.
- Unpack it.
- Quit Safari.
- Copy the ‘SaveToDEVONthink’ folder to ‘~/Library/InputManagers/’. You will be asked to enter an administrator password.
- Open the Terminal application (in the Utilities folder) and enter the following commands (best use copy/paste to copy them from here), each line followed by the Return key:sudo chown -Rh root:admin /Library/InputManagers/SafariToDEVONthink
sudo chmod -Rh og-w /Library/InputManagers/SafariToDEVONthink
- Open Safari again.
You should now see the new Save to DEVONthink command in the File menu. Thank you, ‘bartek81’!
