When I drag a favicon into a DTP folder it saves a bookmark flagged ‘unread’.
But when dragged into the Sorter it saves a webarchive with no ‘unread’ flag.
This seems inconsistent.
I generally prefer to save webarchives.
Is there an override key or a preference setting to alter the default saved file format for folders?
Thanks, Brian Liddell
You can add bookmarks to the Sorter by pressing the Command-Option modifier keys while dropping the link. Stuff dropped to an inbox should be also marked as unread. However, we’ll unify this in a future release.
Dragging a URL onto an Inbox in the Sorter creates a webarchive. This is counterintuitive – especially considering that when I drag a URL directly into DT (2.0.6) it creates a bookmark.
Regarding the Sorter, the documentation states: “For URLs dragged from a browser this creates a bookmark and does not add a web archive of the page.”
Dragging a URL into DT with or without keyboard modifiers (command; command-option) just creates a bookmark.
I believe the text that precedes what you cited from the manual fully describes the behavior:
“Command-Option-drag to add only a reference of the item to DEVONthink Pro Office
(index). For URLs dragged from a browser this creates a bookmark and does not add
a web archive of the page.”
Command-option-dragging to the Sorter creates an indexed document, unless the item being dragged is a URL. The documentation is accurate, even it one considers the behavior inconsistent. However, there is a bug in this behavior-documents (not URLs) that are command-option-dragged to the Global Inbox will still be imported. Documents dragged to other inboxes in the Sorter will be correctly indexed.
Ahem…Yes, I re-read the ENTIRE paragraph this time. My excuse is that I was very tired and misread it previously.
I noticed that one, too.
I’m a newbie to DEVONThink; so, I appreciate the kind replies and other useful info.
Currently, I’m experimenting with document links. It’s not as easy to use as SOHO Notes’ “attachments,” but it does appear to be quite flexible.
