I am enjoying using DTPO 2 and delving into Joe Kissell’s book as I reorganize all my material. I have been using DT since 2003 but not very skillfully. I have now indexed (and synced) reprints associated with Endnote, and having that access is working very well, and I am doing a lot of scanning of hardcopy material.
I am a taxonomic botanist with my research materials mostly in DT, Endnote, Aperture 3, and 4D relational database. I think I can only import static reports from 4D, where I have most species distributional and nomenclatural data, so do not expect much change there.
I do not see any way I can index my images in Aperture to DT, but that is what I would like to do. Any advice on workflow and possibilities is most welcome. I know I can export contact sheets and some metadata to DT, but that is not what I need.
I would like to use DT to house or refer to my decades of taxonomic research, so that I can search, view, and write drafts directly in DT. I hope ultimately not to have to go to Aperture, 4D and DTPO individually to see what I have and then export material as needed from all three sources.
Many thanks for any suggestions and pointers.
