Document selection when deleting ROUND TWO

I’m seeing the behavior referenced by Greg_Jones in the “Document selection when deleting/moving documents” post (Document selection when deleting/moving documents). Unfortunately, the suggested fix isn’t working for me (deleting my DEVONthink pref file).

No matter what I do, my selection jumps to the top of my window whenever I delete a document in any smart group, no matter how it is sorted. Is anyone seeing this? Was there ever a solution found?


I still can’t reproduce the issue. What version of DEVONthink and operating system are you running?

DEVONthink: 2.11.1
OS: Mojave 10.14.2 (18C54)

Can you record a short screencast and post a link to it?

Sure, I’m about to leave the office for a meeting. I’ve never shared a screencast publicly. Do you have a preferred method? (if not, I’ll google it when I get home later tonight).

<<< EDIT >>>

I looked at the earlier post and used the same method. Here’s a link:

Let me know if it doesn’t work. Thanks.

Yes, that works. Thanks! We’ll look at this again.

How is the group actually sorted (see View menu)?

By Date Created. I’ve tested this with other choices (for example, “by Name”), and I get the same result (selection moves to top of window).
