Hi all. I am new to DevonThink, and am wondering if I can use it to take research notes in a way similar to how I used FileMaker Pro in the past. If not, I’d love feedback on how I might shift my process to accomplish the same ends with DTP.
What I did with FM was make an input form that I used to enter standard info for each book/article that I read (e.g., Title, Author, Themes, Category, Notes, Research Implications, Related Sources). The form helped to standardize my input and it kept me focused as I read.
In DTP, the Notes interface is quite formless. I see that there are templates, but I’m not finding any documentation on how to create my own template, which I am assuming is the way that I’d set up this kind of form in DTP.
Is there a way to design your own template, in Pages or Word, and then to easily call it up whenever I want to take notes? Or to design a customized Note setup that would let me enter notes in this way?
