Drei deutsche Autoren, die ihr mögen könntet

Like the software market the market for books is currently undergoing extreme changes. Many authors are trying to catch the attention of readers and customers, and ebooks, app stores, and flatrates are fueling the “price race to the bottom”. Therefore today I’d personally like to point those of you reading German to three extraordinary authors who happen to be also my personal friends. Maybe you’ll like their books and blogs. Der Büchermarkt befindet sich, wie auch der Softwaremarkt, derzeit in einer großen Umbruchphase. Viele Autoren buhlen um die Aufmerksamkeit...

Tuesday tip: Import from Instapaper

Instapaper Logo

Getting your articles from Instapaper to DEVONthink automatically isn’t straightforward, unfortunately. Power user Annard Brouwer has written a great little script that takes a CSV file exported from Instapaper, converts it using Numbers, and imports the cleaned up result to DEVONthink Pro or Pro Office. Click here and switch to Install Extras in the Support Assistant or choose Scripts > More Scripts inside the app to install the script. You’ll then find it in Scripts > Import. Annard also provides the script as gist on GitHub.

Save tabs to DEVONthink with these scripts

AppleScript script icon

DEVONthink power user Veritrope has created two new scripts that creates a list of all the pages currently open in tabs in Safari or Chrome. So with a single click you have saved all your tabs in a single HTML document in DEVONthink Pro (Office) and you can re-visit the pages later at any time. Download the Safari script and the Chrome script from his homepage. Veritrope has many more scripts and tips for dealing with browser tabs.  

Tuesday tip: Hotkey toggle

Some of you have expressed the desire for a hotkey to show or hide the DEVONthink Sorter. Instead of waiting for us to implement yet another hotkey, you can easily do it yourself. Go into System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > App Shortcuts. Press the Plus (+) button and select your edition of DEVONthink. Type Show Sorter and add your desired hotkey. I used Control-S. Repeat steps 2 and 3 but type Quit Sorter in the second one. Assign the same hotkey. Now you...

DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.7.7

DEVONthink Export Menu

DEVONthink is the document and information manager for the Mac. Version 2.7.7 recognizes Apple’s new and shiny Swift source code files, retains more metadata than before when you export documents, and prefills the Save panel with tags for you. Many more small interface improvements make using the app easier. DEVONthink also indexes external folders faster and supports OS X Mavericks tags based on former labels. For HTML pages it uses Open Graph metadata. The Pro and Pro Office editions come with further...
