Hello, I know very little about Devonthink. However, I think I am ready to move full force into it. This will mean migrating my scan snap home scanned images and my Obsidian notes. I know that there is an obsidian integration, but one reason for migrating is to have a single source instead of the 2 or 3 I usually deal with…
1: How many databases should I use. For example, right now I have an obsidian folder and a flat file storage folder called “pets”. and from there I have a folder for each pet with notes in obsidian and important files in a flat folder with scanned documents. Would I create a separate database for pets? Al in all, I have about a dozen categories. Would I go ahead and match my current structure and make 12 databases?
1.5: As I experiment I see that a single database, though there are “groups” it still seems to sort of jam everything together. would a best approach be to create a database for each pet, to easily organize? Is the proper approach to Devonthink to create lots of databases? or fewer databases with tags and such to organize?
2: I plan to import my notes from obsidian manually into text files in Devon think. I want to do it like this as a chance to review my notes and see what I really need. However, what is the best way to move my folders that contain PDFs and images in? Do I just select all and drag them into devonthink where I want them to live? do I point the database at a folder? Thanks sorry, for the noob question.
anything else I might be missing? thanks! sorry, im researching a bit on my own, but hoping for some comments from experienced users. thanks
