Labels & annotations: DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.7.4

Preferences > GeneralColored labels are an easy way to mark files important to you since Apple introduced them with System 7 in 1991. Today we’ve released maintenance updates to DEVONthink and DEVONnote that give you more control over how they’re shown to you: by tinting as in the Classic days, as a bubble around the document name, or as a colored dot, Mavericks style. And that’s of course not all: We’ve enhanced PDF annotations, added support for AirMail, fixed some bugs, and more.

We recommend these free updates for DEVONnote and all editions of DEVONthink to all users. Get the new versions directly by using the apps’ update function or visit our Download page.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. I absolutely hate the label dots of Mavericks and found the tinting to subtle to be useful. So thank you for giving me back labels I can actually *immediately see*. It’s these “tiny” considerations of actual user behavior why I love DEVONthink.
    (Frankly, the only thing I’m really missing is a good encryption when syncing. I frequently use the network at work, i.e., it is not under my control. I don’t want admins (or skilled ‘users’) to have access to my private files that get synced as well, not do I want to deselect private databases each and every time.)

    Great having the “Modern” labels option back for so many of us dot haters. Thanks so much! You are among only a handful of developers that are actually doing something about this issue!

    HOWEVER, what happened to the Preferences > General > Startup options that were so suddenly trashed?

    • Open new window
    • Open windows that were open on quit
    • Do Nothing

    Devon has never had a “Close All Databases” command and now if we have many databases open ( I use about 30) they must be closed individually or they will all open again next startup. This is extremely clumsy to me and quite a shocking database management surprise. Is there some workaround or a script I might use to replace the previous options?

    Thanks for adding the “Close All Databases” command in vs 2.7.5. This really makes a difference.
