I just wanted to flag an issue that I’d like to see improved. When I add a note to a pdf highlight, DT3 occasionally bogs down with the spinning wheel cursor for 10-15 seconds or so. Sometimes it happens right away as I click “add note” from the right-click menu, and other times it happens as I’m typing the note. It’d be nice if DT3 wouldn’t freeze up when I’m adding these notes, if possible.
Are you using a Bonjour sync?
No, this database isn’t set up to sync with any other devices.
What operating system and version of DEVONthink are you running?
Does it persist after quitting and relaunching DEVONthink?
How about after rebooting the machine?
I’m running Catalina 10.15.3 on a 2016 mbp. I rebooted, opened DT3 to a pdf, and repeated the process of adding a highlight and then adding a note. The first time it worked perfectly. The second time it froze for about 35-40 seconds.
After playing around a little more, DT3 does not freeze with pdfs that have been in the database for a long time. Is it possible that the “add note” function bogs down while new pdfs are being indexed? I often highlight pdfs immediately after importing them into the database.
Could you please launch Apple’s Activity Monitor application (see Applications > Utilities), select the frozen DEVONthink 3 app in the list of processes, choose the menu item View > Sample Process and send the result to cgrunenberg - at - devon-technologies.com? Thanks in advance!
