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 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.

DEVONthink 2.8.9 supports Finder tags of folders & more

Import Files and Folders

New year, new maintenance update for DEVONthink and DEVONnote. Version 2.8.9 now imports your Finder tags of folders too. When exporting, both applications assign tags created in their databases to folders as well. The update also lets you make document windows fullscreen on OS X El Capitan. DEVONthink 2.8.9 supports dragging images to formatted notes. It also names captured items smarter, e.g. images, bookmarks, or notes. Formatted notes are based on simple HTML with embedded images. They are portable and can be viewed...

DEVONthink 2.8.8 improves Tinderbox integration & more

Just before Thanksgiving and right in time for the Eastgate’s release of Tinderbox 6.4 we’ve made DEVONthink 2.8.8 available. The update improves, among many other things, the integration with Tinderbox. Multiple copied notes can now be pasted to DEVONthink including backlinks and tags; they become plain or rich text notes depending on the pasted contents. DEVONthink 2.8.8 also makes working with PDFs more comfortable, reuses existing groups when importing contacts, and adds newly created groups immediately to the recent destinations. For bookmarks and clicked links DEVONthink...

OS X El Capitan updates for DEVONthink & DEVONnote

OS X El Capitan is out and DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.8.7 add some necessary changes for it. In addition to this we’ve overhauled the built-in synchronization both between Macs and from Mac to iOS. Importing or indexing files is up to twice as fast as in previous versions and DEVONthink 2.8.7 groups attachments and cross-links them when taking over notes from Evernote. Other improvements include more comfortable navigation within PDF documents, better PDF printing, and fullscreen support for videos from web views....

Ready for El Capitan: DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.8.6

Markdown with images in DEVONthink

OS X El Capitan became just available as public beta. Right in time, DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.8.6 bring important compatibility changes for it. In addition, DEVONthink 2.8.6 supports images referenced in Markdown documents. When importing Bookends references, DEVONthink imports their keywords too. PDF text annotations created by other applications keep their appearance. They are only restyled as soon as you edit them with DEVONthink. For Calendar events dropped into rich text documents both DEVONthink and DEVONnote add a back link, too....

Tuesday tip: Don’t use DEVONthink as a junk drawer

Sometimes, people do indiscriminate dumps (import or index) into DEVONthink or DEVONnote, imagining it to be a Finder or Spotlight replacement. This is really no more truly effective than the junk drawers we all inevitably have at home. And it leads to more false positives in searches and use of far more resources than it needs to. Searching for a AAA battery in the junk drawer is far harder than it needs to be. Even trying to open that drawer, with screwdrivers...
