I think we got a bit off topic.
For example, if I want a Google doc as a PDF, I will just paste the links on miro.com and then tell miro to expand the doc/sheet/slide. It will lay out every page on the board and I can do what I want on them in terms of drawing or further edits.
I really like to avoid code. I like visual tools. For example, I prefer Keyboard Maestro’s designer more than AppleScript. I prefer MIT Scratch to writing Python.
It’s just so much easier to wire something up using a tool like NodeRed than it is to think about writing loops and low level coding ideas.
So I do try to avoid scripts.
Anyhow guys, I only responded to say thanks for the cmd+s so I can now type some markdown and see the result.
I don’t understand, just like the original poster doesn’t understand why the markdown tool isn’t WYSIWYG…
And the only reason I was looking at Markdown was because for some reason, when I paste a link like this into a text document…
for some reason DT3 would highlight it the first time and then when I reopen the text document, it is no longer highlighted until I hit space after it.
So I settled on doing this style of link in markdown, which works fine
The plain text document should highlight devonthink links automatically when opened. It doesn’t.
So I go into “find a workaround” mode. I found a workaround.
Markdown, but markdown doesn’t show me the edits as I add them to the document, so I have to work around that… and the workaround is a cmd + S.
Appreciate all the posts here on the forum. Without them. I’d probably never understand how the product works.
