Sticky type notes

Hi all

Some time ago I added some sticky type notes to some of my documents, it looks like a small yellow box with black lines, it I click on it it opens out to a larger note.

Now, for the life of me I cannot find out how to do this. I have searched everywhere I could think of with no luck. Could someone please point me in the right direction?

Many thanks.


This is a Note Annotation. It is accessible from Edit > PDF Document > Note or in the Toolbar when you double-click the PDF to open it in its own window.

Apart from Jim’s comment about PDF annotations:

It’s a cool idea, but not something that DEVONthink does now – sticky notes. You know you can click a document and use Tools > Show Info (⇧⌘I) to open a panel where you can type Spotlight Comments for that document?

There are lots of 3rd party apps for sticky notes (including Apple’s). Something like AntNotes can attach notes to an app or a file in Finder – but not to a file in DEVONthink. There’s also the DEVONthink widget for note taking in the Dashboard – it sort of has a sticky interface.

Thank you, that’s what I was looking for
