I’m having the following problem with DT Pro Office:
I have a large collection of scientific articles in pdf format,
the pdf files are normally named AuthorYear, so e. g. Sago2003.pdf (=Full text).
All the pdf files are indexed.
Furthermore I have a bibtex database with >2000 entries, where the entry is named (bibtexkey - in DTPro the field is called “@”) AuthorYear,
so the bibtex entry name “Sago2003” belongs to the file Sago2003.pdf
(Normally, the bibtex field “pdf” also contains the file name, e. g. “Sago2003.pdf”)
So far, so good.
I now want to take notes about the different articles.
I highlight them with Skim (and also index the .skim files with DTPro).
For very important ones, I also take notes in RTF format.
I create those “reviews” in DTPro directly and they are named “Sago2003_rev”.
Those citekeys (like “Sago2003”) are normally unique in the database, they could only “interfere” with “Sago2003a”, b, c…
So, for my understanding of the See also function, if I select “see also” for the RTF file “Sago2003_rev” - I would like to see Sago2003.pdf and the entry “Sago2003” in the bibtex database as some of the first results.
Unfortunately, this is not the case and it seems to me that DTPro somehow ignores the object names in its search.
I created an empty rtf file “Sago2003_rev” and so see also is also emtpy.
If I paste “Sago2003” as the only text in this file, nothing changes.
If I paste “Sago2003” a second time, then the bibtex database entry appears in the “see also” results.
- this gets even worse if I add more text to the review-file (text notes about its content):
- even if I insert the complete bibliographical information (Authors, Title, Conference, Year) in the RTF, the bibtex database entry is not in the results…
- even if I add 12 times the citekey “Sago2003”, the bibtex file does not appear in the results! - I have to add it 13 times (in addition to the 67 words in the text file)
Another example: For books, I may have more than one pdf files (10…50 copied pages as single pdf files) and I save them in a folder named e. g. “Hemingway1940”.
If I now create the RTF review file “Hemingway1940_rev”, the folder with the nearly same name (Hemingway1940) does not appear in the “see also” results!
Does that make sense?
The name of the objects (which I tried to use as an identifier) is not that highly rated by the AI engine for see also.
Any hints for me, how to make my system better?
(or can the behavior of DTPro be improved?)
(Sure, this is somehow obvious and I know that “Sago2003.pdf” belongs to “Sago2003_rev”, but it makes me feel uncomfortable that DTPro seems not to understand this system of mine.
