first of all, my congratulations to devon technologies for a great piece of software.
here comes my question: it seems that I cannot mark text in dt’s internal viewer in pdf files. I would like to do this to be able to make clippings from pdfs. when I open the file externally with mac os x preview, it’s perfectly possible to mark text.
Correct. Text cannot be selected from indexed PDFs.
This will change in a future version. With the release of the Tiger OS, Apple will provide developers PDFKit and the programming hooks to provide similar functionality to Preview, but inside DEVONthink.
Can we have an aproximate time table on this? It’s a very important capability to me and I am pissed off at Adobe for teasing us with the ability in prior versions of Reader and then taking it away. Now you need a whole expensive infrastructure to even use markup and sticky note annotations.
