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.

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.

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...

DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.8.5

Web sharing to Windows 8.1

E-Books, either as PDFs or ePub, establish themselves more and more for technical literature. Starting with version 2.8.5 DEVONthink indexes ePub and iBooks books natively and lets you convert them if you need to. Better annotations make working with PDFs more comfortable. And the faster and more secure web server lets you work better together with your coworkers stuck on Windows. The maintenance update for all editions of DEVONnote and DEVONthink come, of course, with many more little features to make your...

DEVONthink To Go on iPad

Today our update to DEVONthink To Go 1.5.5 became available in the App Store. The new version fixes e.g. crashes connected to broken databases on the Mac or to exporting data to the iTunes document folders (emergency export). For example databases without a valid UUID (universally unique identifier) could crash DEVONthink To Go. Update your copy from within the App Store app on your device or through iTunes. DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.8.3, which we’re released last week, also fix an issue with synchronizing items moved into...
