What's new in DEVONthink Pro

Version 3.6.3:

This maintenance release provides modifications to address some issues with iCloud (CloudKit) syncing. For the list makers, creating checkboxes is now supported in Markdown documents. Importing from Evernote is faster when handling notes with attachments. And, of course, there are the usual bug fixes and reliability improvements.

NEW
  • Added On Labelling smart rule event trigger. This is also supported in AppleScript.
Improved
  • Checkboxes are now supported by Markdown rendering and conversion. The syntax is - [ ] or - [x] at the beginning of a line.
  • The Insert > Checkbox command in the Edit and contextual menus can now be used when editing Markdown documents.
  • Pasting or dropping rich text into Markdown documents now attempts to convert the content to Markdown syntax. The DEVONthink 3: Create Markdown Document service will also attempt the conversion.
  • JavaScript is now internally automatically enabled to preview Markdown documents if MathJax, Prism, or Mermaid support are enabled in Preferences > Media and JavaScript is disabled in Preferences > Web.
  • Improved the behavior of the alternative command Data > Group Similar Items.
  • Improved the speed of importing of ENEX files and File > Import > Notes from Evernote with notes containing many and/or large attachments, e.g., Noteshelf notes.
  • Moving an indexed group to another indexed group no longer changes the filename of the group.
  • Limited the height of automatically resized text fields in the Info > General inspector as, e.g., long URLs could require a lot of space.
  • Improved VoiceOver support in the Document > Links inspector.
  • File > Verify & Repair Database and automatic verification before synchronizing databases can detect and repair more issues.
  • Improved overall reliability.
Improved (Sync)
  • Improved handling of retries and throttling related to temporary iCloud (CloudKit) issues.
  • Improved reachability handling of iCloud (CloudKit) sync locations.
  • Improved overall reliability of, e.g., the deletions handling and import of pending items.
Fixed
  • In light mode, the Take Note view of the Sorter could remain dark. Fixed.
  • When the Sorter is set as a docked tab, the Search shortcut set in Sorter preferences didn't focus the search field of the Sorter. Fixed.
  • Rendering and conversion of Markdown textbundle files didn't display linked images from within the bundle. Fixed.
  • When multiple documents were selected, Tools > Summarize Highlights did not list the title of each document in Markdown or rich text summaries. Fixed.
  • Closing the toolbar search did not always display the currently selected sidebar item(s). Fixed.
  • Double-clicking the header of the item list in List view could cause the selection to be opened if the list view was not scrolled to the top. Fixed.
  • Renaming long file names in the item list in Column view displayed incorrectly on macOS Big Sur. Fixed.
  • Setting a Yearly reminder in the Annotations & Reminders inspector could freeze the application. Fixed.
  • Loading the Preferences > Imprinter preference pane did not work in some cases. Fixed.
  • Certain files added to the Inbox folder in the Finder were imported multiple times, e.g., OPML or ENEX files. Fixed.
  • Formatted notes could unexpectedly lose focus on macOS Big Sur. Fixed.
  • A rare multi-threading issue after installing the OCR engine could crash the app. Fixed.
  • Scripts executed by smart rules after synchronization didn't always work as expected. Fixed.
  • The relevance of search results set via AppleScript was undefined and could affect the sorting. Fixed.
Fixed (Sync)
  • The encryption key of iCloud (CloudKit) sync locations was not added to the keychain. Fixed.
  • The garbage collection of iCloud (CloudKit) sync stores could cause temporary 'Missing manifest' issues. Fixed.
  • The global inbox was never marked as needing sync after receiving push notifications and so not immediately synchronized if the schedule was automatic. Fixed.

I've used DEVONthink since it was 2.x. I departed from it for a while, but I'm back and loving its usefulness. It's quite handy to use with iOS devices where Files.app is quite limited. I tried to do everything with just plain text files and folders, but I finally broke down and admitted it was a foolish idea after all. DEVONthink works quite well for capturing all kinds of info with minimum friction and maintain it in a searchable and usable way. Now that I have tried the overly-simplistic method, I can't emphasize enough how useful DEVONthink really is.

I bought this and thin it's one of the worst piece sof software I've ever bought. I tried and tried to make use of it, but the kludgy and confusing interface and workpath was impossible. I'm a historian for a living, and tried to use this for a book I was writing. it was so frustrating that I just gave up on it. Since then I've written another book using just Zotero and FineReader pro, and I was just cleaning up the ol' hard drive and oh yeah, there's DevonthinkPro. Why did I ever buy that awful piece of frustrations-ware?

$199 for DEVONthink Pro. NOT $99. DEVONthink Standard is $99. - - Why the confusion? DEVON messed around with their application naming with version 3. What WAS DEVONthink Pro v2.x is NOW DEVONthink Standard 3.x. Check their website for details regarding changes. (o_0)

This appears to be a marginally useful database app. I am uncertain because I am unable to really figure out how to use it because the entire endeavor is so inextricable confusing. The problem is that I am an educator in need of a solution NOW, not after 6 months of using the product to figure out how to use it. What is even more egregious is the fact that they offer, but do not honor educator discounts. I have tried to obtain this coveted discount but have been denied. They gave me the directions to get the discount, I re-applied, but they refuse to answer now. There are alternatives to this software, and I do not need an overly militant sales dept who drives up revenue by lying to the public.... If their sales dept acts this way, can you immagine what the rest of the user experience would be like?

Looks like they did a good job cleaning up the interface of the desktop app. Unfortunately, their website is confusing. They need to hire a marketing person to tell them what needs to be on their site so that it isn't confusing for customers (and people who potentially want to upgrade) to figure out. A good comparison chart of ALL versions would be a start along with the price for each. It looks like the upgrade from DEVONThink Pro 2 to DEVONThink Pro 3 to get some of the same features that I had in 2 is pretty steep compared to the about $50 I paid last time.

I have been using DevonThink (pro) for a few years now. And I am very satisfied with it. I am now considering moving to version 3 but I continue to find the distinction between the different versions rather confusing! More precisely, I don't like their 'Comparison Edition' page! (on https://www.devontechnologies.com/apps/devonthink/editions ) Rather than see 'The standard edition offers all features portrayed on the DEVONthink product page except those listed above', I would have preferred a simple presentation of all the main features with 3 columns. 'DEVONthink - DEVONthink Pro - DEVONthink Server' IMHO it would have been much clearer.

Is DEVONthink Pro beta 5 - it is "beta" after all - suitable for practical use?? We have been waiting for the final release ... need the software asap for a project that includes OCRing 1500 pages of pdf documents. Comments, thanks.
