I’m not yet a Devonthink user, but I’m seriously thinking of becoming one.
Before taking the plunge, I have a couple of questions:
1/ I understand that thanks to “artificial intelligence”, Devonthink is capable of scanning my documents to detect affinities and similarities which I may not otherwise have noticed.
I work in two languages: English and French. How can Devonthink detect affinities within documents written in different languages? Does it contain routines which will do this automatically to some extent, or does its ability to “jump” between languages depend on the user adding tags?
2/ On the question of tags, I am very interested in being able to tag a wide variety of documents in order to enhance the program’s effectiveness. It is also important to me to know that Devonthink will not “take my data hostage”; even if I stop using the program for some reason, I will still have all my files in their native form.
However I would like to know whether the tags I add to documents will remain attached to them.
In other words, if for some reason I stop using Devonthink in the future, will I lose the benefit of all the tags I’ve entered?
Many thanks for your help on these questions.
