Tuesday Tip: Delete (and undelete) in DEVONthink To Go

Put Back

Here are three ways to delete a file in DEVONthink To Go… With the file shown, click the Organize icon in the toolbar, the squares with the downward facing arrow, and choose Move to Trash. In the file listing, lightly left-swipe the file and choose More > Move to Trash. Also, in the file listing, quickly left-swipe beyond the edge of the application and the file will be sent to the trash automatically. And here’s something else you may not...

Tuesday Tip: Read it later in DEVONthink

Sometimes you have a need to store a bookmark but have no time to read it now. One option is to use an online service like Pocket. Another option is to add the bookmarks to Safari’s Reading List. But maybe you want to keep these items in your DEVONthink database. Here’s one way to do it: In a DEVONthink database create a group to house your bookmarks. Drag this folder to the Favorites section of DEVONthink’s sidebar. This will give...

DEVONthink To Go 2.6.2 brings enhancements and fixes

Update URL Command

Last night our latest maintenance update for DEVONthink To Go has passed Apple’s review. Version 2.6.2 allows settings flags and labels using URL commands, removes path extensions from the name of files imported from, e.g., the Files app, and warns before adding a database with pending items to a new sync location. In addition the update fixes bugs and improves the overall stability and reliability. You can find the complete list of all changes always inside the app (tap the question mark button on...

DEVONthink adds iCloud sync

iCloud synchronization

Sychronization via iCloud was the no. 1 feature request on our list. And here we go: DEVONthink 2.10 and DEVONthink To Go 2.6 let you keep your databases in sync via iCloud and without entering anything except for the optional encryption password. No messing around with sync store names, server addresses, or login credentials. Add the iCloud sync location, check off the databases you want to sync, done. It can’t be any easier. In addition DEVONthink on both platforms synchronizes...

DEVONthink To Go 2.5.1 enhances security and reliability

DEVONthink To Go 2.5 Security Settings

For the DEVONthink To Go 2.5.1 maintenance release we’ve thrown enhancements to the clipping workflow and to its new app security into the package. Clip to DEVONthink adds text retrieved for web pages to the comments of bookmarks and recognizes URLs provided as simple text. The security lock screen now covers also full-screen videos and popovers. That being not enough, no maintenance release comes without reliability and performance improvements. The update makes synchronizing via sync stores more reliable and checks...

DEVONthink To Go 2.5 adds security features

DEVONthink To Go 2.5 Security Settings

We know that you care about your privacy. But we also know that from time to time you hand your iPhone or iPad to friends or colleagues. Which means that they could, in an unattented moment, open DEVONthink To Go and have a look at your databases. With its new app-wide passcode version 2.5 makes sure that they can’t. Optionally use Face ID or Touch ID instead of typing your passcode over and over. You can also set how long...

Tuesday Tip: Shorten long filenames

Names. Names should allow us to quickly identify something at a glance. “Tiger”. Yeah, I know what that is. “2012 Taxes”. Got it. “4d0f1bfec91ff2472.doc”… wait, what?!? To make things easier we can create a more specific name, like “BankOne VISA – January 2018 Statement – PAID – 2018-01-15.pdf” This is certainly more clear but such long filenames may not fully display in all applications or on smaller form factor devices. And word-wrapping can sometimes add to the confusion. Here is an...

Tuesday Tip: Find a file service or make OneDrive work with sync

Icon showing a computer and iOS devices synchronizing

Our synchronization technology for DEVONthink and DEVONthink To Go supports direct connections via the local network, Dropbox, and WebDAV. WebDAV is a standard protocol for connecting to file services over the internet. You can mount WebDAV servers in the Finder just like a remote hard drive, upload and download files, or move things around. It’s a solid standard and DEVONthink can use it for managing its sync stores, folders containing all the files needed for synchronizing one or more databases between...

Decluttering service working again

Clip to DEVONthink clutter-free

Due to a server update our decluttering service no longer worked since last Thursday. The service is used by our Clip to DEVONthink extension on Mac and iOS for capturing articles from web pages without ads and other chrome. The issue is fixed and clipping web pages should work again now. We apologize for the inconveniences.

DEVONthink To Go 2.4.3 improves sync reliability and more

DEVONthink To Go Sync Automatically Setting

We’ve just released an update for DEVONthink To Go to version 2.4.3. This time it’s all about synchronization. So we added the ability to synchronize when you switch to another app. This makes sure that the changes you’ve made are uploaded to your sync store. If you lock the device, iOS immediately removes access to all encrypted data on disk to protect it. In this case DEVONthink To Go stops the synchronization quietly and retries when you come back to it later....
