When I’m browsing in Safari, I love to be able to save PDFs etc. to a folder with an attached folder action that imports to DTPO. I prefer to be prompted where to put stuff straight away, and thus my “Action Import.scpt” has the following
tell application id "com.devon-technologies.thinkpro2" to import thePath to incoming group
rather than the standard
tell application id "com.devon-technologies.thinkpro2" to import thePath
However, I’ve noticed that since upgrading to Snow Leopard that it takes some time for the nice little popup to appear with my database hierarchy, asking where I want to put the new file. This was really annoying me, so I began to look around and found this on the AppleScript release notes for 10.6*:
Does anyone know if there is a way around this or a better way of importing stuff that might help me here?
There’s a better way in which to send files directly to the Global Inbox of DT Pro 2 or DT Pro Office 2:
Inspect a Finder window. Look under Places in the left column. If there’s a Place named ‘Inbox’, great. If not, look for a folder named ‘Inbox’ at ~/Library/Application Support/DEVONthink Pro 2/ and drag it into the Places area in the left column of a Finder window.
Now you can save files from almost any application directly into the Global Inbox.
If, for example, your browser is displaying a PDF file, Save As to Inbox will save the PDF in Global Inbox.
If the browser is displaying an HTML page, Save As to Inbox will save a WebArchive in Global Inbox.
You can save directly to Inbox from Word, Pages, Numbers, Excel and other applications that have the FIle > Save (and/or Save As) command.
