DEVONthink 2.9.8: Revised Media preferences and more

Media preferences panel

Markdown is a brilliant way to unobstrusively add basic formatting to plain text files so that the result is readable to both humans and machines. DEVONthink 2.9.8 revamps its Media preferences and adds a new option that lets you choose how you want to open Markdown files, in “pure” editing mode or as graphically pleasing HTML. In addition, version 2.9.8 improves auto-saving further, makes scanning multiple pages more comfortable, and — you guessed it — fixes more issues with macOS...

If you want to synchronize your DEVONthink databases flexibly and securely via an internet-based service such as Dropbox, Box, CloudMe, or just any WebDAV server, we’ve just added a new tutorial for you.

DEVONthink 2.9.7: More Sierra fixes and other improvements

DEVONthink 2.9.7 scanning interface

macOS Sierra 10.12.2 will soon be knocking at the door. DEVONthink 2.9.7, which we have released today, addresses further PDF issues related to Sierra (but does not fix them all; they’re just too many). Both DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.9.7 improve auto-saving, RTFD attachments show their size, and the Reveal contextual menu command is available for local smart groups too. In addition, DEVONthink 2.9.7 adds support for OmniOutliner 5 files and commands for inserting checkboxes into HTML-based documents. The scanning user interface has been...

On the iOS side we’ve made DEVONthink To Go 2.0.5 remember reading and playback positions. The update also adds a handy PDF thumbnail view, lets you stop and restart...

We have immediately sent a bug-fix release to Apple which is now waiting for Apple’s App Store review. If you experience this problem also on the Mac you can create a custom smart group searching for Instance is Pending and Instance is not Indexed and remove or update the pending items manually....
