Is there any way to have the DEVONThink Safari plugin send a web page to DT in the background without switching the user to DT? Currently, the user has to approve the switch, then be switched to DT, which is very disruptive to one’s workflow if one wanted to save a web page and continue working.
I realize that DT can’t send a web page to a server somewhere as Evernote does, but it would be helpful if the user weren’t switched out of the current app.
It looks like Bill DeVille responded to a post about this in 2011 (DevonThink Activated When using Safari Clipper), but his solution isn’t that much better since it involves manually selecting text to be captured as rich text (and wouldn’t work for really long web articles that are divided into separate pages).
I understand DT needs focus, but is it possible for the DT Clipper Chrome extension to at least bypass the prompt asking how to import? I’d like to clip a web page using my previous settings, particularly, the Group and .webarchive format.
Following up - I solved the issue by using the DT bookmarklets for Chrome, instead of the clipper extension. There’s one that prompts with the popup (where to save, tags etc), and one that bypasses it, silently saving.
The app comes into focus for the latter, but at least it’s doesn’t require action.
PS. I did notice that some websites dont save well… I dont mean one’s that are single page applications with heavy JS, like say Gmail… but content sites.
