I’ve been using DevonThink Pro Office for some time for my history dissertation… a few months back, I indexed a bunch of photos of documents, and was going through them and using the annotation keyboard shortcut to create rich text notes that were linked to the photos… Whenever I created the annotations, they would not appear in the database folder in which the photos were indexed, but rather in a separate “Annotations” folder by default. When I opened the folder, in list view, the annotations would be named as follows “Annotation: filename.jpg”
Today, I returned to make some more annotations, but only after having updated the DevonThink software several times, and after having moved the database from my MacBookPro HD to my iMac HD.
Now, when I make annotations, they appear as RTF files in the SAME folder in which I have the pictures indexed, which makes it harder to browse through the pics in thumbnail view. I now have to manually move the annotations to the “Annotations” folder, where the naming convention has changed such that the files are now “filename.jpg (Annotation)”.
Is there any way to fix this? I’m not that concerned about the filename convention as such (I’d really only be accessing annotations by doing a search, or clicking the link to the annotation in the picture file), but would like to avoid having my annotation files crowd the folders where I’ve indexed my photos.
Thanks in advance!
