… and I discovered just now (I hope that I am wrong) that having the Sorter open and thus being able to take a quick note also means that I can’t call up the panel that allows me to put a clip (text or image) into the desired folder.
The Sorter has the big disadvantage that it can’t hold all the 50 or 60 folders that I have.
So it’s either being able to take a quick note but having little folder choice; or not being able to take a note but having the folder panel open.
Thanks, Devon folks, for the many features in the update.
But may I second the request in this thread? It was extremely useful to be able to route quick notes to any desired folder via the HUD panel. Now it’s really a big pain to have them all land in the inbox, where they need to be sorted out later on.
I’m frustrated, but not worried–you guys are very responsive. Thanks for that.
Perhaps if this was the final release, but it seems unfairly premature to judge DTech based on changes they’re making during relatively dynamic beta product testing (which presumably you’ve volunteered to participate in and hopefully provide productive feedback).
I did not volunteer for anything. Why should I? I paid around a 100 Euros sometime in June for DTP 2 along with DA.
I like DTP 2 a lot. As I said it is my foremost tool. But the developers in my opinion are not very skillful when it comes to dealing with their customers.
This is my second negative experience with the developers. The first involved the “expiration date” of DTP 2. The update that extended the expiration date came just a day or two before the app presumably went dead. This is, I repeat, no way to treat a customer.
For whatever reason(s), you chose (“volunteered”) to purchase and use a product during its beta testing period. I’m not interested in rehashing previous discussions about DTech selling betas, etc. nor further discussing “support politics” (e.g. Customer service 101: play it straight) in this thread.
I’d like to know if/how note taking functionality might eventually return without the Sorter dependency. My hunch is it’s going to remain Sorter-dependent so it usable without DTP(O) running. If true, those of us not running Sorter may be interested in alternatives.
It is rather quite simple: we’re just sticking the old plugin back (without the hot key on Pro/Office because we reserve that for the Sorter) and you can do whatever you want. DEVONthink: it’s all about choice®.
