Well, not en masse, but easier than delete and re-import is to select the item, open the Info panel and change the path. If you’re moving them all to the same location (like, in my case, to ~/Documents/Bookends/Attachments) it was a simple process of pasting right loc’n in. A little mind numbing, but not prone to error the way (for me) the delete-and-reimport is.
It’s probably scriptable, but I’m not a script guy.
Any suggestions for easily searching a relatively large database hierarchy for all PDF documents? Is there a search pattern that matches every document in the database? Or, maybe a Kind field could eventually be added to the History window so it could be sorted to conveniently cluster items by kind? Thanks.
Clever idea, thanks! I’d missed that since the History window (DTP 1.1.2beta3) only displays Name, Age, and Size columns, with all View > Columns menu settings grayed out. So it takes a bit of extra effort to locate the PDF documents between where the last RTF ends and before the first MOV starts (in the particular database I’m using as an example) but at least it’s possible.
Being able to view additional columns in the History window would be ideal. Also, I’ve often wanted to view absolute dates in the History window, as recently as tonight. Those two enhancements would make several global database management tasks quite a bit easier for me.
