Sync highlight colors and names to DTTG


In DT Preferences > Colors, users can choose 7 colors each for Labels and Highlights and assign names to them. I color-coded the colors to serve different purposes.

Now when I switch to DTTG, the 7 colors and their names for the Labels are synced from DT to DTTG. However, when I highlight PDFs in DTTG, I can’t access the colors and names I created in DT and have to choose from a color palette again.

Since I have already chosen 7 colors and assigned specific meanings to them in DT, I would really love it if this feature could be brought to DTTG as well so that I can use the same set of colors when annotating PDFs, both in DT and DTTG.

Thanks in advance.

Highlight colors are not synced between DEVONthink and DEVONthink To Go. Even if they were, PDFs are handled by a third-party framework so its developers would have to support the custom highlight colors.
