I have a folder (group) with many subfolders. When I select the folder, I’d like to see a list of the documents in all its subfolders. Right now, Devonthink is only showing a list of documents in that specific folder (and in this case, there are no documents).
Is there a way to change the settings of that folder so that when I select it, I see a list of all the documents in all its subfolders?
korm, thanks. I realize i only use three-pane view. Selecting all the folders works, although I still wish there were a way for me to see all their contents without selecting all of them. Maybe I need to make a Smart Group that will show everything.
Hi, is there any way to do this without this workaround?
For me, it would be great if groups would not work like folders, but as “filters”.
So a folder would show all the subfolders` contents, and i could drill down into subfolders to refine.
IMHO, group is quiet specific in what it is in DT (same as what folder is in macOS). If u need filters, there are many ways such as using smart group, replicate the items into other groups or group tags, or just tag items and use tags as groups.These ways are not “work around” but are intended as “filters”. Offering too many option for a standardised model (group) is/might going to create confusion for other users. The awesomeness of DT is the flexibility to tailor to diff needs but not the developers to tailor the features to diff users needs…? I am not trying to criticise the validity of a request but to suggest that the fun is to use the flexibility of DT to custom to ur workflow.
