I’d like to insert DEVONthink item links into certain web-based applications (Notion, Roam) and be able to click on those links and have them open up the corresponding document in DEVONthink. However, when I’ve tried to do that, those links always get treated as web URLs to non-existent web pages that my browser tries to open.
Does anyone have a workaround for this? I have Alfred and Keyboard Maestro, so if you think either of those applications–or just some Applescript–would work well, please let me know (please also know that I am still VERY much a novice when it comes to KM and especially Alfred and Applescript).
Right you are! Thank you. Probably I should have tried it in Roam before writing my message. I’ve been having the problem in Notion and thus figured I’d have the same problem in Roam. Notion remains a problem, both in Safari and Chrome. So if anyone knows a workaround for that, please let me know. Thanks again for the help.
According to Mark Robertson in the Roam FM podcast episode below, Roam is an outlier in terms of web applications that open up callback URLs. He says that one of the things that sold him on using Roam is precisely this feature. He also talks a little bit about how he uses Roam in conjunction with DEVONthink.
I use PopClip app in MacOS. Just double click the item link to highlight, and the first thing the menu shows is a link icon you can click to follow it. Easy. iOS has “Follow Link” in the native highlight menu. Takes two clicks but it’s no big deal.
