I use a dedicated scan app in iOS to scan receipts or even full documents. The app is optimized for documents so it makes it square and exposes it properly. I use Scanner Pro but there are others. Use the share feature to send it to my favorite DTTG database and on to DTPO.
Perhaps the folks at DT will do even better as DTTG grows up, who knows.
I did so too, Scan+ from Smile. But when the same company just turned their TextExpander over to subscriptions wanted to look for other options for the future.
And ironically enough the app I love most and use daily but only know 10% could do exactly what I was looking for! And I can sync via WiFi so nothing important goes via the cloud. Just amazed how much thinking and time the developers must have put in to this single system.
I am a newbie even if I used the DevonThink ECO-system for two years now and knowing it can do receipts on the go, and even voice recordings was new to me.
Will spend some time reading up on the Manual again.
No you cannot put a Smart Group in your database that displays the contents of the Global Inbox.
You screen must be very tiny.
You can show / hide the Global Sidebar with [size=150]^⌥⌘D[/size]
You can reduce the size of the Global Sidebar to show only the icons:
If you are using Sierra, then the databases can appear in different Sierra windows and you just change tabs to see the Global Inbox
Though, I suspect the only answer is the one you’ve said you want to hear. So, yes, you can write a script that opens the global inbox and add that script to your toolbar as a button. Maybe someone would be interested in doing this for you.
Why not just capture the New Photo to the inbox of your Main database in DEVONthink to Go to begin with? The ‘+’ button will save the photo to whatever group you are viewing at the time, or to the root of the database if that’s what you are viewing.
