Local Indexed Folder Not Syncing

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”

  1. 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).
  2. Did you have the indexed group selected when you tried the Update indexed items command?
  1. 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 ?
