Rate your documents using labels

Labels as Ratings

Adding the ability to “rate” items in DEVONthink, e.g. with stars, is already on our to-do list. Forum user Truhe couldn’t wait and simply used labels for his ratings. To create your own ratings use e.g. the Unicode characters ☆ and ★ to name the labels from ★★★★★ to ☆☆☆☆ and set the colors to support the rating. To enter the stars use the menu command Edit > Special Characters, switch to Bullets/Stars and double-click the symbol you’d like to insert.

    Something that would complement this nicely would be to have a set of colours and labels per database.

    Please consider including ½ star ratings.

    In the Netflix rating system, 5 stars equals I love it, 1 star equals I hate it and 3 stars equals I like it.

    There are a lot of movies that fall between 2 and 3 stars and between 3 and 4 stars.

    An ability to add more labels (than the 7) would be good. I know I could use tags or groups but labels have the advantage of colourizing the icon or text which makes them more obvious in an unfiltered list
