Does anyone know of a script that can batch convert a Webarchive or HTML page into an RTF file within DTP? This is nicely done by DTP v2 pb 2 but can only be done for one file at a time. I would like to apply this to hundreds of webarchived and html pages if possible. I would imagine AppleScript can do this. Please post any scripts that can do this and I will give them a try.
Thanks very much!
I need to clarify this… Actually converting a webarchive or HTML page to a Note in DTP works very well, but only on one document at time. Is there a way through AppleScript or other means to batch convert to Notes?
Just select some contents and run this script. But that’s basically identical to running Data > Convert > to Rich Text.
tell application id "com.devon-technologies.thinkpro2"
set theSelection to the selection
repeat with theRecord in theSelection
set theConvertedRecord to convert record theRecord to rich
move record theConvertedRecord to parent 1 of theRecord
on error error_message number error_number
if the error_number is not -128 then display alert "DEVONthink Pro" message error_message as warning
What would need to be tweaked to select and batch convert Webarchive files to HTML? Is this possible. I know it can be done for one file at a time, but when I select more than one, I no longer have the option of converting the webarchives into HTML files.
The next beta will support conversion of web archives to HTML.
