DEVONthink To Go 2.6.5

DEVONthink To Go Search Field

Halloween’s over and the ghouls kids have hoarded the sweets they need to survive until Christmas. On a side note, DEVONthink To Go 2.6.5 has become available too. The maintenance release indexes items without searchable text locally, e.g. email synchronized from DEVONthink Pro, and enhances the way it handles the keyboard when searching. It also improves the reliability of retrieving web page thumbnails, the progress indication when verifying and cleaning sync stores, and the overall reliability and performance of the synchronization.

Web Tip: How to save time with automation on iOS

Klaus Kandert

Our power user Klaus Kandert writes complex Shortcuts workflows for iOS. He uses them for managing business proposals, projects, and other inquiries solely on his iPad. And now he has begun writing about his workflows and how to put the iPad to use for professional work: In the first workflow of this blog series I’m going to generate a PDF automatically and save it to Devonthink to Go. A new group is created for the new project with a new...

Reading Tip: How professionals use our software to be productive

From time to time I post some links to articles out there that give an idea on how other people use our software. DEVONthink and DEVONagent are part of what makes them productive at their Macs, iPads, and iPhones. Paul Ryan Katz is a PhD candidate in Latin American History. In his article Paul describes his DEVONthink workflow for archival reseach. Documentary filmmaker Kirby Ferguson lays out his writing workflow in, what else, a short video. Of course DEVONthink plays a role too....

Web Tip: Workflows for scholars

Jeff Taekman

In his blog, Workflows in Personal and Professional Productivity, Jeff Taekman lays out his workflow for Reading, Extracting, and Storing Scholarly Information. Of course this also involves DEVONthink: The whole purpose of extracting annotations and full text from each manuscript is to gain granular access to the information I’ve read. Through its “see also” feature, Devonthink can identify information I’m looking for. But more importantly Devonthink finds related content based on the context of my original query. (…) The next...

Among many other improvements DEVONthink To Go no longers sleeps during very long sync runs and uses a less storage space when importing databases shallowly. We now also warn you when you choose a reauthentication delay that would break Files app...

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 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...
