I’ve been an enthusiastic user of DevonThink Pro Office since 2008. It’s been an essential part of my workflow ever since, helping me write several books, capture the research for my PhD and so on. Really a wonderful piece of software that I’ve considered essential to my workflow and digital life for years.
I made the upgrade to DevonThink 3 just yesterday and I’ll admit to feeling quite at sea. Many of my old workflows, shortcuts to get to certain menu items, or views and behaviours — all gone / disrupted or hidden.
I did a bit of browsing through the forum here expecting to find many others like me, but it seems a lot of this was handled a few months back among beta users.
While I feel very much at sea / lost in the application’s interface at the moment, from previous experience I know I have the capacity to get used to a new interface. It’s disruptive and unwanted, but what to do? I miss the three-pane view, but it seems it’s not coming back, so I have to adapt myself.
My question is: what resources are available for users making this transition?
I was thinking of reading through the manual cover to cover, and then starting with some kind of a database to see what workflows might suit me best. But I wondered if there are videos or walkthroughs for people like me. (There must be others who would benefit from a “if you did it this way in v2, you should do it this way in v3”).
