Duplicate files - quick info on how to find them?

Hi all,

when Devonthink finds a duplicate file in any group in a database, it is highlighted in blue. That’s a great feature. What I haven’t figured out is: if the duplicates aren’t in the same group, I haven’t found a way to find out which file Devonthink sees as the duplicate.

I would have hoped for a simple right-click option like “reveal duplicates”, but there is no such thing.

If anyone has an idea on how to get this done easily, I’d much appreciate it!

Best regards,

Bring up the info panel for any selected document - Cmd-Shift I - and look for the drop down box titled ‘instances’.


Most databases are pre-populated with the “Duplicates” smart group, but you can add or modify it if you wish

Wow, great info - thanks everyone!

Best regards,
