I’m very pleased with the latest (v.1.6) of DEVONthink. It is clearly the best and most serious note-taking and organizing tool for the Mac. As far as I can tell, it lacks only one feature that would be very useful to me. The ability to reload imported file from the hard disk (into a read-only data element) or to synchronize DT data with the original imported file.
I’m more interested in the former. It would give me the ability to search data I keep on my Palm using MacNotetaker, not to confused with the NeXT notetakers:
Once a week HotSync downloads the MacNotetaker files from the Palm and into a folder of flat text files. I would like to be able to launch DEVONthink, click on a read-only Notes folder, and reload/reimport with the new Palm data. I thought the new link-to feature might be the answer, but those files are not searchable.
After reading most of the notes in this forum, I see there is a grayed-out item in the File menu: Synchronize. I assume this is a feature whose time hasn’t come. Is this the feature I’m looking for?
All suggestions welcome.
