    Great podcast, one important reminder:

    It works great to use .Pages documents in DevonThink.

    Think that question remained unanswered. I have all my .Pages, .Numbers documents in my DTPO.

    Regular MPU listener, now DEVONthink Pro & DEVONagent Pro user. That was a great MPU episode that led me to some powerful research software. I’ve been looking for something like this for a while now. Love it – I’m so excited I’m still playing with the bubble wrap.

    Thanks DEVONthink & MPU.

    In the podcast, Gabe says multiple times that it’s possible to automatically create tags based on the groups (folders) that the items are in. How to do this?

    (Or did I misunderstood?)

  5. jneumann says:

    @Nick Jones: No, you didn’t misunderstand. If you select File > Database Properties > and the desired database, you’ll see a checkbox in the upper left corner of the Properties that reads “Exclude Groups from Tagging” (they are excluded by default). Uncheck this, your Group icons will turn yellow, and Group Tags will now be applied.
    Note that you can selectively exclude Groups from applying Tags by right-clicking (Control-clicking) on a Group and choosing “Exclude from Tagging”.
