Thank you for the finally fully functional global inbox.
Would you please explain for dummies like me, how exactly this global inbox is working?
Launching the app all items from the global inbox have been imported in the database window under ‘Global’. But it did not empty the folder in Applications Support -> DEVONthink Pro 2 -> Inbox. Have we to do this manually after importing?
With DT Pro open I dragged some items to the global Inbox, but they were not imported immediately to the global Inbox.
The Help file says:
I am glad the Sorter did not play a sound, but I would like an optical sign like the jumping icon in the dock, when items have been imported successfully.
In my case they have not been imported from the global Inbox, dragging them to an other database’s Inbox worked as it should.
I got a bunch of never seen error messages and suddenly two Sorters on the desktop, quit DT Pro and after a restart the folder Application Support -> Inbox has been reimported to the Global Inbox and finally emptied. The global Inbox shows now 994 items and a folder called Inbox with 480 items, most of them duplicates. Ufff. (This folder has been the reason, I did not find recently imported items, at first launch I thought, they are identical, obviously searching the wrong folder.)
I have two Inboxes in Application Support -> DEVONthink Pro 2. One with the same Icon as the open DT window, the other called Inbox.dtbase2. Is this the Inbox for every open database?
In ‘Globals’ is a Trash, containing a (previous?) Global Inbox and another one, from my default database. OK?
Finally after the restart I got the sounds when dragging items to the Sorter. Unfortunately, in my case. I hate speaking machines.
But my real problems are the increasing amount of inboxes. I hope I will get them sorted out one day.
These two folder are both in ~/Library/Application Support/DEVONthink Pro 2. The Inbox is empty, 44KB. The Inbox.dtBase2 package contains 63,2 MB. I did not have this package before the update. Should I import this database and then delete it?
Because this is the global inbox, why should it be emptied? Like I said - ignore this package, if you’re experiencing troubles, then it’s related to the folder (and only to the folder) ~/Library/Application Support/DEVONthink Pro 2/Inbox.
And this folder is NOT the inbox, only a temporary storage created by the Sorter of previous betas.
