I have 2 databases, the global inbox and another which I use mostly to store old data, let’s call it the OLD database. I only work in the global inbox because replicants are so important for my workflow.
My problem is that everytime I open DevonThink, both databases open and I have to close the one with the old data. When I forget to do so I get mixed up filing new data.
I can’t find a way to configure DT so that only the global inbox is opened when I open DT.
I wonder if it could have to do with the fact that my global inbox database contains the inbox of the old database. Should I change this ? where ? Or would you have another idea ?
thanks in advance for your time and help
If you close a database before quitting DEVONthink, it should remain closed on the next launch of DEVONthink.
Are you saying that’s not what you’re seeing?
hello ! It’s been a while !
As I was waiting for an answer, I found the problem.
If the inboxes are unified (pref → general→ interface→ unify inboxes), then both databases open each time I open DT. When I uncheck unify inboxes, only the global inbox opens.
thanks very much
Indeed, it has!
Actually, the other database should still open. However, its Inbox will not be showing in the Globals section of the Navigate sidebar.
OK thanks !
