DT workflows using Hookmark

Does anyone use Hookmark along with DEVONthink? Would you share your workflow? I like how quickly I can create bookmarks with Hookmark. I’d love to know a seamless way to also share with DT. I realize there is the Share extension “Add to DEVONthink” but I’ve had mixed success with this method.

A forum search for Hook or Hookmark should return quite a few posts indeed.

@Andrew_Glaser, I’m using Hookmark with DEVONthink in the context of a Zettlekasten (Luhmann’s note filing system) using Markdown. Hookmark just updated to v.5 today so these comments apply to that version. Select two notes to be linked, drag those notes to the Hookmark context window to link them. Select which one of the notes you want to be the “upstream” note and type the name of the downstream note in the upstream Markdown note. When completed, you’ll see that the Hookmark link to the “downstream” note appears as a clickable link in the upstream note. Do the same thing for the downstream note by entering the upstream note’s name in the downstream note and that link will appear accordingly in the note itself. This gives an elegant and simple way to connect markdown notes with fewer steps that using the DEVONthink commands of “Insert Link To” and “Insert Item Link.” As a bonus the Hookmark links appear in their proper places in the Document Inspector’s Links pane. Even if you aren’t using DEVONthink for a Zettlekasten this is a nice way to link notes. It also works with .rtf notes.


Hi there, sorry for jumping in, I was wondering how hookmark can be used since DT3 has its custom links as well. I asked support and they say it complements but to what extent they did not elaborate.
