Annotation Bug in Beta 6 - Preview Panel Freezes

I believe there is a bug with Annotation in Beta 6

Can you reproduce this:

1 - Select a PDF document

2 - Open the Editing Bar and select the Rectangle annotation tool

3 - Place a rectangle annotation in the document. In the Annotation Inspector, add some text in the details fiel

On my system, these steps repeatably freeze the document preview pane - it does not change if I select other documents. I can only fix it if I exit DT3 and restart.

Not seeing an issue here. Does it persist after a machine reboot?

The reboot fixed it - thanks

And I see that you have added the feature to highlight in the annotation inspector pane the selected annotation - very nice.

One other question/observation:

Whenever I add a new annotation I get this popup box - is there a way to suppress that?


No. That is is Annotation Properties pane, which was also present in DEVONthink 2.

It seems to me that if I want to make a bunch of similar annotations on a document it would be helpful to configure the annotation once and not have to close the window every time I make a new annotation.

Surely others must experience this too?

I have actually never heard any complaints in the last 7+ years :thinking:

If this should happen again, then please launch Appleā€™s Activity Monitor application (see Applications > Utilities), choose the frozen DEVONthink 3 in the list of processes, select the menu item View > Sample Process and send the result to cgrunenberg - at - - thanks in advance!
