DEVONthink user and scientist Jim Falk has created a great little app to help him with his research work. The Mac app named FlunkeyFox facilitates using DEVONthink Pro (Office) together with Microsoft Word.
- Creates Microsoft-Word-compatible links to documents in DEVONthink Pro
- Reveals the corresponding document in DEVONthink when the link is clicked
- Opens Google Scholar in Safari with the title of a highlighted document in DEVONthink Pro so that the correct citation can be found
- Imports the citation into Endnote 7 and then into Microsoft Word as a footnote
Jim wrote the app written in AppleScript using GUI scripting and Livecode. It’s compiled as a standalone application but comes with source code. Jim publishes it under the GNU GPL-3 license.
