i’ve been using DEVONthink for several months now, and am finally starting to put a lot of information into it. however, i’m trying to understand how (if?) i can make use of DEVONthink’s features but still keep my data accessible in the Finder. i have been importing items and telling Dt to use links to them, and that works well. but it would be great to have a way for Dt to notice when the contents of a folder have changed, or to be able to create a new group in Dt and have it appear as a folder in the Finder.
for example, i have a projects folder in the Finder. this folder has thousands of documents in tens of sub-folders. i need to be able to acces the folder in various ways, including over networks, so i can’t just copy everything into the Dt database.
i guess my basic question is this: is there some way to use Dt as a smart mirror of my Finder file structure? that way i could work in Dt when i’m at my computer, but would also still have access to all of my data when i’m remote.
