importing .dat files


I’ve just installed Devonthink and I’m busy importing my files into it. One of the main filetypes I’m using are .dat files, which just contain text.

When I try to import/index these into Devonnote it seems to consider these as videos - and I definitely can’t view them as textfiles.

Is there any way to tell devonthink to treat these as .txt files or something like that? I have far too many to rename them all - and as I was hoping to take advantage of the index feature with these it’s quite crucial they remain named as .dat

Is this possible?

Not yet. This extension is used for all kinds of files, quite often binary files, by various applications and on Mac OS X it’s by default associated with QuickTime.
