Open File with default application


when I open a file (word, pdf whatever) in DT3 with double click, this file opens in the DT3 Viewer not in the the default application like word oder adobe. The default application was selected in the Finder.
Sorry can´t find more then the tip to select the default application in the finder, what I did.

Kind regards

There’s a DT preference for it.

See Menu: DEVONThink → Settings → Tab: General → SubTab: Interface → Click “on” Double Click Opens Files Externally.

Elaborated on page 161 of the “DEVONthink Manual” (3.90 version).

While there in Settings and in the “DEVONthink Manual” have a look around to get familiar with other things you might want to do.


Thank you so much.
