Hi everyone. I’m on a mac. I’ve indexed a folder; however, if I move a file to that folder with the finder, it doesn’t show up on devonthink. I tried to hit “updated indexed items” but nothing change. Am I missing something?
Where is the folder located in the Finder?
in documents folder (which is synced in icloud) I created a subfolder “note”
- Indexing folders in cloud-synced locations may not update automatically. DEVONthink does this to avoid creating conflicts with the sync process controlling the Finder folder(s).
- Did you have the indexed group selected when you tried the Update indexed items command?
- yep, I do, nothing happened. Interstingly, the files showed in devonthink are located in this path
~/Library/Application Support/DEVONthink 3/Inbox.dtBase2/Files.noindex/html/1
while the folder is in ~/Documents/NOTE
Then you haven’t indexed the folder. You’ve imported it.
Have you read the In & Out > Importing & Indexing section of the built-in Help or manual ?
