It would be really nice to add a keyboard shortcut to capture all or part of the screen via the sorter.
Remembering the previous choice (screen, window or selection) or creating a shortcut for each choice would be an added bonus.
I find the current way of doing things a bit tedious…
The advantage for me is that I can add a note, tags etc to the screenshot and also select the appropriate folder in the database right away.
For execution I use a Keyboard Maestro macro and so that I don’t have to remember shortcuts, a BetterTouchTool gesture with the mouse.
The linking of the Safari page etc. I create with the app Hook. Here is an example video:
@filou53 yes, I am very happy with the Hook app.
The developers have very good documentation (tutorials) on the app and more apps are being added.
The current beta indicates that an iOS version is coming.
Thank you but sorry, I think I didn’t make myself understood
(I’m a French speaker).
What I would like is to be able to take a screenshot (in JPG or …), from anywhere in DVT (and even if possible outside), with a direct shortcut.
(Yesterday I found a solution based on KeyBoard Maestro as suggested by appleianer)
I use the Apple-supplied screenshot.app found in the /Applications/Utilities folder. I activate with Shift-Cmd-5, then size what I want to clip, then save it to the DEVONthink Global Inbox. I think that achieves what you want.
Further, I have a rule which watches for images files incoming and they are automatically converted to PDF with OCR.
