Navigate my databases in DT sometimes can be really a pain (e.g. when chasing and comparing duplicates) so I would like to see implemented a few features, namely:
1a. Clickable path inside the Infobar (below the toolbar). .
1b. After a search using the Find (search field) the Infobar shows info about the search (x items found in y seconds) and if you select a result item the Infobar doesn’t show the usual information; I would like to revert back to the standard appearance when I select an item.
Now you have the path of the file visualized below item name (with is fine and can be left as it is) but: paths cannot be navigated (see point 1a), sometimes paths are too long (so I need to hover over the item and wait the pop-up).
- I’m missing Back-Forward buttons or shortcuts to jump to previously seen groups. The “Go back” command displays the previous document and not the previous group. You can combine “Go back” + “Reveal” commands but it’s a poor workaround.
All these features are present in any file manager (even in the Finder).
Many times I saw in this forum the assertion that “DT is not a Finder replacement” but, as a matter of fact, once your files are inside a database DEVONthink interface is the only way to manage them so it should (in my opinion) offer features available in any file manager out there.
