I was working in PAGES today and would like to know if there is a way to save my document directly to DTPO? As opposed to, saving the native document and then “pulling” it into DTPO.
And a second question along the same line; should I try to save all documents into my database instead of (again) saving it natively and then pulling into DTPO? And, if I’m able to do this, (sorry, third question) will DTPO allow the document to open in its native Application?
If you save your Pages document to the ‘Inbox’ folder in the Finder, it will be saved directly into the DEVONthink Global Inbox.
If you save a Pages document (basically just an empty document in the desired layout) to the Global Inbox, you can then select it and choose File > Export > as Template to add it to the templates available within DEVONthink. To use it, choose it from the Templates choices and start editing.
You can always open a document in its parent application by clicking on the ‘Open Externally’ icon in the Toolbar, or by right-click and choosing ‘Open With…’.
A location named ‘Inbox’ is listed in the left column of Finder windows. Items dragged into it are sent to DEVONthink’s Global Inbox - the database named ‘Inbox’ that’s listed in the left sidebar of view windows.
Items dragged into the Inbox in the Sorter will be sent to the Global Inbox immediately if DEVONthink is running, or sent to it when next launched if the application isn’t currently running.
The Inbox location in the Finder can be chosen as the destination when invoking Save or Save As, to save a new or edited document directly to the Global Inbox.
