Linking DT file to Jursim:
Outline of the problem:
Need to manage the bibliographic reference / metadata information in Jursim (=zotero), but need the referenced file (e.g. pdf) to reside in devonthink for managing annotations.
1>Create bibliographic entry in Jurism
2>Click menu bar icon paperclip
3>Select “Attach link to URI”
4>Select and Right-Click file in DT
5>“Copy Item Link”
6>Paste link in URI Link field (Jurism) [ref. step 3 above]
The bibliographic entry in Jurism will now call the linked file in DT, bringing up current and future annotations to that file.
This method prevents possible versioning errors by having a stale file in Jurism and active/fresh file in DT.
Is it possible to paste the “Copy Item Link” information into DT somewhere so that it calls the file? Pasting it in the search field does not seem to call the file.
Sometimes I do not want to go through the steps of creating a bunch of URI Links and simply copy paste the DT item link into a Jurism note as text.
As I understand it, the “Copy Item Link” function produces a unique document identifier (= the number&letters after the x-devonthink-item:// ).
