Data detectors in 3.5

Thanks for adding data detectors in DTTG3.5! URLs are recognized (they are colored blue), but I’m not able to click them in edit mode. Is this the expected behavior?

Yes, this is expected. In edit mode you edit, in view mode you can click links etc. But @aedwards could elaborate further here. Alan?

We previously discussed a similar topic here and it seems that in the next release on macOS they would be clickable. Would be great to have that behavior on iOS too (especially since you now already have a setting to disable data detectors). If e.g. clicking links is not a feature, the only added value of data-detectors would be syntax highlighting, right?

DEVONthink 3 will support this in its next update. In DTTG we are looking at options to support this in a future update.
