As DEVONthink cannot (yet) open multiple databases at a time, there can be the necessity to combine two databases. Here’s Bill DeVille’s quick guide to combining databases:
- Assume the contents of databases A and B are to be merged into database C. In the Finder, create two new empty folders, named A and B, which will be used to hold the contents of their corresponding databases.
- In DEVONthink Pro, open database A. Select all of the contents of the database. Choose File > Export > Files & Folders, and choose folder A as the target.
- Do the same for database B.
- In database C, select File > Import > Files & Folders. Choose the content of folder A. Repeat, choosing the content of folder B.
Now the three databases have been combined. DEVONthink Pro uses “DEVONtech_Storage” files to keep meta data during export/import.
