How To Move Non-Indexed Files Into An Folder At Finder?


I’ve created an intelligent group that displays all PDF files which are not indexed.

Now I would like to move all these files into a new folder in Finder, in order to keep them as indexed items in DTPO.

How to achieve this?

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards, Friedrich

You could select the files you want to move to Finder and drag them into a folder in Finder, and then index that folder.

Or, slightly faster, you could create an empty folder in Finder, index that folder, go back to DEVONthink and drag the PDFs into that indexed folder and then use “Move to External Folder” from the contextual menu.

The second method sounds more complicated but I usually find that it’s actually faster.

BUT – I have a feeling that neither of these options is what you are looking for?
