Early summer updates: DEVONthink 2.9.12 and DEVONagent 3.9.7

DEVONthink To Go 2.1.5 was first with an update, today it’s the turn of DEVONthink, DEVONagent, and DEVONnote to receive an overhaul.

DEVONthink Pro and Pro Office 2.9.12 allow you to copy a universal URL for databases. Previously item links were only available for groups and documents. Link to other documents or to resources such as images and CSS files from Markdown documents with absolute paths too. Zoom or rotate images with trackpad gestures, set a reminder to a custom date, and access the subgroups of your Favorites in contextual, action, or popup menus. Finally, DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.9.12 let you zoom in and out of web pages with gestures.

Our internet research assistant DEVONagent now sends all enquiries to Google and Bing over secure connections (https). DEVONthink Express and Pro 3.9.7 get updated Macintosh News search sets, and the Pro edition a new command for retrieving see-also results for selected text. And, as usual, there’s even more: Click here to read the news.

We recommend these free updates to all users. Get them directly by using the apps’ update function or our Download page. If you purchased them in the Mac App Store you’ll receive them as soon as they’ve passed Apple’s review.

    This is an amazing update. Thank you.

    How do one use CSS files in markdown? Is that custom styles for markdown documents? What is the syntax to include it? Thanks again

  2. @ Lex: The same way as for HTML files, by adding a <link> tag referencing the CSS file in your database.

  3. Jason says:

    Do you have plans to allow users to replicate (not copy) documents between databases?

  4. @ Jason: That’s technically not possible in the way replicants are implemented. But you can get an item link and add a bookmark for it to the other database as a first workaround.

    @ Eric: Thanks, that’s one way to do it – and also I can apply separate tags based on the database. However, it doesn’t display the actual text of the object (e.g. if it’s an RTF file), which means it’s difficult to see while browsing in the other DT database.
