DEVONthink 2.9.16 speeds up synchronization

Importing two databases from WebDAV

With our maintenance update 2.9.16 for DEVONthink we focused on enhancing the built-in synchronization. We now let you import multiple databases at the same time from a sync location and pending items are automatically downloaded from the next available location. In addition we’ve made connections to servers more reliable and efficient, store credentials separately to avoid issues related to macOS’ sometimes flaky preferences handling, and clean up sync locations more aggressively. This improves the sync speed especially of databases containing...

DEVONthink 2.9.15 with rewritten PDF sidebar

New PDF Sidebar

We’ve finally decided to replace the system PDF sidebar with our own code to fix some long-standing issues with macOS El Capitan and later. DEVONthink 2.9.15 brings a completely rewritten PDF sidebar that is not only more reliable than its macOS counterpart but also offers better clipboard, drag-and-drop, and keyboard navigation support. Other enhancements include a new URL command for creating groups, enhanced drag-and-drop for Tinderbox, and improved linking to other materials from Markdown and HTML documents. Groups created, e.g., by importing from Evernote are no...

DEVONthink 2.9.13 with better decluttering and Markdown support

Clip to DEVONthink clutter-free

Today, in the heat of the summer, we’ve released another round of updates for DEVONthink and DEVONnote. For version 2.9.13 we’ve updated our decluttering service for clipping articles from the web. In addition we’ve rearranged a few menu commands for clarity and improved importing bookmarks from Google Chrome. If you work in science or education you might like that you can now copy references also from Bookends purchased in the Mac App Store. Version 2.9.13 allows you to reference scripts from Markdown...

Early summer updates: DEVONthink 2.9.12 and DEVONagent 3.9.7

DEVONthink To Go 2.1.5 was first with an update, today it’s the turn of DEVONthink, DEVONagent, and DEVONnote to receive an overhaul. DEVONthink Pro and Pro Office 2.9.12 allow you to copy a universal URL for databases. Previously item links were only available for groups and documents. Link to other documents or to resources such as images and CSS files from Markdown documents with absolute paths too. Zoom or rotate images with trackpad gestures, set a reminder to a custom date, and access the...

DEVONthink 2.9.11: New declutter web service and more

Clip to DEVONthink with "Use clutter-free layout" option

Two weeks ago Instapaper silently made their public API available only to logged-in users. If you are one of the DEVONthink users whose workflow relied on Instapaper here’s the fix release for you. DEVONthink 2.9.11 now uses our own Markdownifier web service for decluttering clipped web pages and articles and so removes the dependency on a third-party service. That not being enough, version 2.9.11 improves sharing notes from Apple Notes to DEVONthink and makes notes imported from Evernote independent from their mothership. It’s never been easier to...

DEVONthink 2.9.9 imports notes from Apple Notes

DEVONthink importing notes from Apple Note

If you’re an Apple Notes user but would like to move completely to DEVONthink and DEVONthink To Go now, this update is for you. DEVONthink 2.9.9 adds an option for importing notes and attachments from Apple Notes. It honors the folder structure in Apple Notes and uses formatted notes to preserve formatting in a future-proof format. But that’s, of course, not all. We’ve rewritten the fullscreen text editing and made importing UNIX email mailboxes with DEVONthink Pro Office easier. Version...

DEVONthink 2.9.5 and DEVONthink To Go 2.0.4

As with most major operating system releases, macOS Sierra and iOS 10 bring not only new features but also many under-the-hood changes. We have just released updates for all editions of DEVONthink as well as for DEVONnote and DEVONthink To Go. The maintenance releases for the Mac work around the multitude of issues introduced with Sierra’s overhauled PDF library, changes in Mail’s script support, and more. On iOS, DEVONthink To Go 2.0.4 fixes many issues related to memory and database management....

DEVONthink 2.9.3 and DEVONthink To Go 2.0.2

We know how important a robust sync is. And so here’s another maintenance release for both DEVONthink for Mac as well as DEVONthink To Go. We’ve made synchronizing to e.g. WebDAV or Dropbox up to 3.7 times faster. Direct connections via the local network are more reliable now too and during a sync you can see which database is being synchronized. On the Mac side DEVONthink now shows if there are unsynchronized changes and truncates sync location names in the middle instead of at...

DEVONthink 2.8.11: Better OCR metadata panel & more

OCR Metadata Entry Panel

Just a quick note that we have just released DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.8.11. The update brings, among many more detail enhancements, a revised view/edit pane and better compatibility to RSS 1.0 feeds. Automatically opened panels such as the Activity or Log panels are no longer activated by default. This way they don’t unnecessarily interrupt your workflow. If you are a DEVONthink Pro Office user you will like the rewritten OCR metadata entry panel. You can resize it to better see which document asks for your...

DEVONthink sharing extension

DEVONthink 2.8.10 also offers new contextual menu commands for HTML 5 videos, e.g. played in a web view. Conveniently copy links to the videos or download the video files to your Mac using the contextual menu. When verifying your databases all editions detect more issues than before and are able to repair...
