Dear Korm, dear Jim,
thanks a lot for your quick answers!
Korm, I can definetely see why you promote the approach to use another app and then drag this document / PDF into DevonThink. The last thing I want is DTTG to become a bloated piece of software that tries to do everything at once.
But let me give you a different perspective on that. Judging from your website, your target group is „knowledge workers“ - lawyers, educators, researchers, students… I think that all these people would love working from a "blank canvas“ that they could design using a combination of their handwriting and other features of DTTG.
I myself see numerous applications for this. Think about the author who can quickly jot down a network of relationships for his new novel and link specific elements to chapters or folders within his database. Think about the researcher who needs to create visual representations of his work - and maybe make them searchable by using OCR within DevonThink. The educator who wants to create quick visuals for his students. The student who needs to note down something during a lecture. The list goes on and on.
I guess, being a creative person I am just a big fan of the “blank canvas” that can spark ideas and see a lot of enhancements by the technological change that came with devices like the iPad Pro and Apple pencil. To me, it would be great if this was reflected within DTTG.
My workaround thus far has been to create a blank PDF, e.g. in Pages, and use it within DTTG to create my notes on it. It already works quite well (and is less cumbersome than using another app), however, I see a lot of potential for further development and ease of use.
Looking forward to your comments!
All the best
