DTPO-3 and DTPO-2 simultaneous - permitted? advisable?


I did not have sufficient time to experiment with v3, so chose to keep using v2 instead.
Today I’d like to get more into v3.
I have both on my macbook.
However, the Inbox in the Finder is still linked to v2.
How can I change this to link to v3?

Thanks for helping out!

You can’t. They are independent of each other and th Global Inbox isn’t linked.

You could copy the ~/Library/Application Support/DEVONthink Pro 2/Inbox.dtBase2 file to the ~/Library/Application Support/DEVONthink 3/ directory.

Note: DEVONthink 3 is in beta testing, meant for testing, finding and reporting bugs. It should not be used in mission-critical or production environments. When beta testing, it’s always wise to use copies of data or test data. I personally also advocate running DEVONthink 3 on a separate macOS User account to keep things isolated. Your data, your choice - but I always err on the side of caution with peoples’ data.

Thanks for your input!
I’ll look into the dtpo support folders / locations.

But I do think we can use a commonplace sync store, don’t we? That way (apart from inbox) I still have data omni available?

Yes, this is possible to add an existing sync location to DEVONthink 3.
