As a casual but regular DEVONthink user:
Is it possible to gather all ungrouped items into a smart group and filter items that are grouped out of search results?
Currently, I’m categorising files into research areas. However, when starting a new area (by creating a group, and searching for files to add to it) I’m encountering files I’ve already added to other groups. My question is asking whether I can filter these out, either in the search results or automatically with a smart group - and how.
Thank you in advance for any help.
The location of items is shown under the name in search results.
Thanks for the response. Ah, and sorry for the confusing description. I was wondering whether I could filter my search results for all items not currently in a group.
This is currently only possible by excluding the group from searching, see Info inspector.
Thank you guys for adding the option to exclude sub-groups from the search results in the latest 3.9 update.
If your central database has the files organised:
[file, file, file, etc.]
‘Exclude Subgroups’ enables you to find your “unorganised” files (i.e. files yet to be organised into a group). You can then use the ‘Move To’ hotkey to add them to an existing or new group. Thus, this new option allows you to organise files into groups quickly.
We’re glad you’re finding it useful!
