Pasting copied text not possible


I have a markdown note with in- and outgoing item links (not Wiki Links)
When I right-click on any incoming item link in the Links Inspector I can select copy in the context menu and can insert the copied link to any application except for DEVONthink

Steps to reproduce

  • Create a markdown note with incoming links
  • Open Links Inspector, right-click on one of the incoming links and select “copy”
  • go to the edit view of the markdown note, right click into it and select “paste”

Result: No text is pasted.

Expected behaviour: the copied link would be pasted into the markdown note.
Hint: if I right-click on one of the outgoing links in the Links Explorer behaviour is as expected: I am able to copy and paste it into the markdown note.


  • DEVONthink Pro 3.9.4
  • MacOS Ventura 13.6.1

Thank you for the bug report, the next maintenance release will fix this. In the meantime you could use drag & drop while pressing the Command and Option modifier keys.
