Request: Support for GPX files


I’m saving all my outdoor activities in gpx and kml files which I now archive in Devonthink. It would be great if Devonthink would support these files directly:

  • Display a view with a map and a route on it.
  • Display a view with basic data, like length, date and time of the tour.


DEVONthink relies on Quick Look plugins to display files. If there is Quick Look plugin installed on your machine for any file type, then there will be a preview in DEVONthink. Can you locate a third-party plugin and install it?

At least I couldn’t find one at

I now bought the GPX reader in the App Store which says

But I don’t get a preview in Mail, Finder or Devonthink. But that seems to be a problem of this app, not of DT.

You may need to restart your Mac after installing a new app to get the system to recognize a QL plugin.
