This is one of those trivial maybe not worth features, but is there a way to define what document DevonThink opens by default each time you launch it? In my case it’s the daily todo-journal. Would save me 400 milliseconds (avoid clicking on it in the Favorites list plus keep the Favorites list always open)?
No, there’s not anything built-in other than selecting it before you quit the app. DEVONthink should reopen in the same state it quit.
However, you could generate a bookmark from the item link and launch DEVONthink by double-clicking it in a variety of ways.
Thx will try the bookmark case, assume this is the DT specific url that I could put into a browser bookmark. Or I will will experiment with Alfred to see if there’s a simple way to associate that with a ‘fake’ search.
- Control-click > Copy Item Link.
- Command-N to make a new bookmark in DEVONthink.
- Drag the bookmark out to your desktop, dock, whatever.
- Quit DEVONthink.
- Launch your bookmark.
Thx that’s cool but it opens up the document inside DevonThink in a separate window rather than in the view pane below when launching the link.
Then edit the URL by appending of the bookmark with ?reveal=1.
Thanks yes that was the trick.
