Printing an entire database - possible?


I have a database of about 500 documents (80-90% PDF) that I need to print out.

Other than selecting them individually, is there a batch method for printing them all?

So far I can think of (but haven’t tried):

1/ Potentially in Applescript if I was more upto speed on that.

2/ Drop to the Finder, open the Database as a folder, and print from there.

Thanks for any help!

It’s indeed scriptable. Here’s a basic script to print the selected documents:

tell application "DEVONthink Pro"
	set theSelection to the selection
	repeat with theRecord in theSelection
		if type of theRecord is not group then
			set theWindow to open window for record theRecord
			print theWindow without print dialog
			close theWindow
		end if
	end repeat
end tell


(not that I doubted you but I was getting resigned to a much more primitive workflow :slight_smile: )

Thank You, Sir!
