To Document… works great for searching by name. But it doesn’t work with item links.
Scenario: I’m work with two documents side-by-side in full screen/split screen mode. The note I’m reading in one pane contains a link to an item in my database. Now I want to open that item in the other window. Whats the best way to do it? Genuine question. I do not know.
In Finder, if I’m in a similar scenario with two windows open, I would select the item I want to go to, then use the default keyboard shortcut
C to copy the path to the item. Then I would move my focus to the other window and hit
G. It opens a dialogue box where I can paste the path, hit
return, and instantly go to the location. It’s very quick. Can I do something similar in DEVONthink?
My first instinct was to try to use the
To Document… command in DEVONthink, similarly to my Finder workflow. But rather than using the path to the document, I figured I could use the item link. Alas this was not successful. Instead, I can highlight the text containing the hyperlink and
Copy it to my clipboard. But this is only useful if the display text of the link matches the item name.
