I’m a newbie in using DevonThink and i have just come across a problem that i can’t seem to solve.
I have a folder full of academic papers that i find and download by using the program ‘Papers’.
I want this folder to be indexed in DevonThink and every time i add a new pdf to the folder i want DevonThink to update automatically.
I thought this was done by using the Action Index script, but by the love of god i can’t make it work. Here is what i have tried so far.
In DevonThink i have manually indexed the folder, then used the DevonThink inspector to view the folder properties, and added the Action Index script to the script section. DevonThink then indicates that a script is attached to the folder, but it never updates when changes are made via the finder to the folder (when i add a file to the folder).
Secondly i have tried adding the Action Index script directly to a folder via folder actions in the finder. I set up a workflow in automator and then added that to the folder - since, for some reason, the Folder Actions did not want to let me use the Action Index script directly.
Now i have no idea how to proceed. I have been browsing through this forum and i think i am doing it like it is described in several other posts here. However i am beginning to wonder if i have to change anything in the script itself? Currently i am using the ‘out-of-the-box’ version.
All help appreciated - and this is the first time i am setting up a folder action/automator/apple script, so yes i am a complete noob here
