I’d like to be able to clip PDF docs from Safari to DTTG but that’s not an available option. I have to convert it to another format and then manually re-download the document when I’m back at my laptop. I’d like if I could Clip to DEVONthink > Format “PDF” when appropriate.
On the off-chance that this is a config issue on my end, here’s how I reproduce the current state of things:
View a PDF in Safari
Clip to DEVONthink
Hit the top-right arrow to select format
See options for Bookmark, Web archive, Web Archive with Instapaper, Markdown, Markdown with Readability
It should also be quite trivial to do this with Workflow.app
Simply create a workflow that creates a PDF of the current safari page and then import with DTTG. Here is a very ROUGH draft of what you could do. Mind you, this could be greatly improved. workflow.is/workflows/da4339909 … b2a245e855
Another alternative which I find works very well, is toggle Safari’s Reading Mode (creates a cleaner view of the web page sans all the adds and added cruft) then share > print and finally use this trick Print to PDF in IOS 10 now available!
To be clear, I’m talking about the specific case where I’m already viewing a PDF in Safari. Use fake-printing to make a new one with the same content isn’t quite the same. For instance, suppose I’m viewing a contract: I want to save that exact file to DTTG, not print that PDF to another PDF that (probably) looks the same.
