no web searches for local pdfs

similar web pages, web pages and Web search are all activated in the preferences and do work for some items, they do not for others. In these cases only items indexed locally will be reported in a see also search by Devonsphere Express, not similar content online.

In these cases, the Show: All categories box underneath the pdf in question will only show “pdf documents” and “Devonthink Pro” ticked. When online stuff does show up, there are additional checkboxes for “Web pages” etc.

Is this behaviour intentional or am I simply missing something? Looking for similar publications online to the pdf I am working with locally would be very helpful.


Similar web pages are only supported by items having a URL, e.g. the current tab while you’re browsing. But it’s not (yet) possible in case of local documents.
