I’ve been using MarginNote to annotate my PDF files. These annotations can be exported in various export types, in which the annotations are divided into a set of discrete notes, along with their respective comments and tags.
I export my MarginNote annotations in OmniOutliner format, and then run a script that groups the annotation notes by category - tags (e.g., Category POULTRY - tag - Chickens, Turkeys, Quails). (The OmniOutliner file also has a dedicated column for each hashtag, per annotated note.)
This process uses a TaskPaper file – as a kind of reference file for the OmniOutlier reorganization script – which contains each category on the first level, and tags on the second level.
I don’t know if this is remotely possible, but I’m wondering if there’s some way – either through a smart rule or script – that I could import such files into DEVONthink, and then:
Use the OmniOutliner and/or TaskPaper file(s) to create the same taxonomy of categories and tags in DEVONthink, and then…
…import a set of MarginNote-produced annotated notes (e.g., from an OmniOutliner file or another export format), and have DEVONthink store and organize them according to notes’ tags.
MarginNote can export annotations in what they call a “DEVONthink format,” which is basically a batch of RTF files. But it seems a bit clunky – and I thought the TaskPaper file and/or the re-organized OmniOutliner file might just be easier for accomplishing what I’m seeking.
BTW, I read this post on “Set tag of current doc via ios shortcuts / sharesheet?” and thought there might be some elements of @BLUEFROG’s Smart Rule that might be used to accomplish what I’d like to do.
Is this possible? If so, how would users suggest I put together a process for accomplishing this?
