I currently use Word’s notebook view to take notes during talks or meetings. Its ability to record audio and link it to what I’m typing is great. BUT I hate the program itself. It crashes constantly, and DT has serious problems importing its files.
Just now, I was looking around for alternatives to Word, and I noticed pearnote. But then I also noticed that Circus Ponies notebook also offers the feature. So I thought: what’s stopping Devonthink from having that feature? That would completely cut out the middle man for me, and I’m certain that plenty of users would find it useful.
