Hi there, today I played with the seemingly new function（at least to me） that enables us to drop any files in a sidebar folder “inbox” and suddenly it can be automatically sent into devonthink inbox.
I find this extremely helpful. I almost immediately make a decision to prioritize it as my main method of importing from now on.
Then I rename it “DTInbox” to replace the default name “inbox” cuz I think it was not specific. But after renaming, it doesn’t work anymore. I try to drop files into it and the files still stay in there and are not sent to devonthink as expected.
I was wondering how to fix this? Can’t the folder be renamed?
Thanks in advance！
Does it work after renaming it back to Inbox?
what a speed!
No changing name back to Inbox doesn’t address the issue
Is there still a folder named Inbox in ~/Library/Application Support/DEVONthink 3?
Yes and no from what I can tell. cuz it’s a bit weird the folder name at its root location is DTInbox not the original name.
Do I need to change the name at the root folder and not directly at the sidebar so as to effectively implement the name changing process?
There exists 2 importing folder at root folder. It seems the new one “DTInbox” formed after I renamed the original one. Then I add both at sidebar and experiment to see if both behave the same. as a result, only the folder with original name can function normally, the renamed one still can’t.
The bottom line is the inbox folder cannot be renamed.
That’s correct, this isn’t supported.
Thank you so much for your help! cgrunenberg
