  1. I’ll be honest: I first tried DEVONthink four years ago and it just didn’t stick. However, over the years as I have collected more and more information, and still haven’t found a great way to aggregate my data, DEVONthink is becoming more appealing.

    The relationship/related features snuck right by me; now I see their value. I also love that DEVONthink Pro Office supports OCR! I’ve been using NeatWorks but it’s limited with a bad UI. I’ve migrated my PDFs to iDocument, but it’s extremely limited in functionality as well.

    Keep these posts coming! I’m learning more and more how DEVONthink may be the answer to my Digital Disarray.

    It must be obvious because he did not say how he integrates his Diigo articles into DevonThink.

    My thought precisely, Gary.

    Is there an easy way to import web archives from Diigo to Devonthink?

  5. eboehnisch says:

    @ Dan: This all depends on what export formats are available for this Diigo service. If it can create webarchives in a format that OS X can digest, or PDF with links back to the original source, it should be no problem.
