How to create zip file from selection of PDFs?


Is it possible to create a zip file from a selection of PDF’s located in search in DT3? If so how?

Many thanks


The way I do it, select all the files that you want to zip and export to a temp subfolder until ~Desktop. Then in Finder select them, right mouse click, select “Compress …”

Here’s a little ditty with a nice beat… :stuck_out_tongue:

Do a Spotlight search for Archive Utility.

Drag the application from the search results to your dock.

Launch the application and set the Preferences, like so…

Drag files from DEVONthink or wherever to create a ZIP on your desktop.


Lovely - thank you

You’re welcome :slight_smile:
