I’m new to DevonThink; got it as part of the MacHeist bundle currently running.
Right now, I’m trying to wrap my brain around what it can do. Specifically, I’ve been using Sticky Notes/Chronos Notes for several years to hold and catalogue things like web purchase receipt pages, interesting emails that I think I might have use for later, etc. What’s not immediately clear to me is what Devon Think offers that Chronos Notes does not. And if I switch, is there a way of getting my current Chronos Notes database into Devon Think?
Hi Steve: fwiw, and imo only, I think you’ll short-cut a lot of digging in the docs by checking out this official tutorial/screencast. Lots of in that video. Spend the 20 minutes first; then the docs should be much more helpful.
Steve, that probably depends on the export function in Chronos Notes. If it allows you to export notes as text or rich-text files, then DT will certainly import those.
If you have other file types, like PDF, bookmarks, web archives, etc. it will depend on what condition they are in after export. I took a fast look at the SOHO Notes page, and there’s no information offered on exporting files.
See the Help files for your Notes version and they may help you with the export process. The Export command is most likely in the File menu. --Will
