I haven’t been following changes in DevonThink very closely. Regarding sync, I used to have a Mobile Sync group in my databases. (I use local sync only, using a Mac as the server and an iPad as the client.) As I recall, I used to replicate groups or items that needed syncing to this Mobile Sync group. That allowed me to keep the amount of space used on the iPad to a minimum. Reading the most recent manual, I found references to choosing which databases to sync, but not which parts of a single database to sync. Is that option no longer available?
Assuming it isn’t, are there any canonical strategies for avoiding overloading the iPad?
