I just bought DevonThink Pro Office and DevonAgent in the bundle. I did not do a trial period, as I had used DevonThink Personal years ago, and I was confident that it would work as advertised.
I am quite shocked to find that I was wrong — it cannot perform the basic task I want to use it for.
I am writing a book, and have a massive collection of articles saved as .docx, .doc, and .pdf. I trashed the old database left over from my DevonThink Personal usage, and made a new one by indexing 1700 articles. They all showed up in the database. However, when I click on them, while I can see them (in tiny type, which I can’t seem to change), I cannot edit them. More importantly, DevonThink apparently can see into them. When I pick a word in the article and search for it, DevonThink can’t find it!
This means that I can’t do what I bought DevonThink for: Searching within this massive collection of articles.
I cannot find any mention of this problem in any of the forums or help pages or documentation.
Please help me fix this problem.
I am using a MacBook Pro, OSX 10.5.8.
