DEVONthink is your paperless office. It stores all your documents, helps you keep them organized, and presents you with what you need to get the job done.
Updated on Sep 26 2023
This release brings a new command that allows you to copy selected text including an item link to the source document. You can now view and edit custom metadata on multiple selected documents, use Markdown code syntax highlighting with three more languages, and, on Apple silicon Macs, preserve the original page image when doing OCR, retaining the original resolution and quality. A few new scripts let you handle rich text content or change the case of item names.
Amongst the other improvements, we have again made modifications to prevent PDFKit from potentially corrupting text layers in PDFs. This also enhances performance when working on larger documents. And, of course, we have made many more changes for better performance and reliability as well as for compatibility with macOS Sonoma.
file://URL, e.g., dropped into Markdown documents, are better named.
%pageNumber%placeholder no longer inserts spaces before or after the number.
create record withAppleScript command is more reliable.
verify databaseAppleScript command, e.g., in the Scripts > Data > Verify & Optimize Databases and Scripts > Daily Backup Archive scripts.
compress databaseAppleScript command more quickly returns control of DEVONthink back to you when compressing databases located on local APFS volumes or local volumes supporting hardlinks. This also improves the performance of the Scripts > Export > Daily Backup Archive script.
synchronize recordcan again be used in smart rules and triggered scripts.
add custom meta dataAppleScript command is now better converted to the appropriate data type.
compress databaseAppleScript command didn't correctly handle optional internal metadata stores. Fixed.
