hello … i have been using DT personal and i want to trial DT pro - but DT pro doesn’t seem to recognize my DT personal database?
Normally, the first time DT Pro is launched on a computer that holds a DT Personal database, that database is copied and changed to the DT Pro database package file type and is saved to the Document folder.
You might check to see if a package file with the name of your DT PE database and the suffix “.dtBase” is in your Documents folder.
If not, you can easily construct a DT Pro database from a copy of your DT PE database, without any harm to the original database.
Make certain that DT PE is Quit.
In the Finder, go to ~/Library/Application Support/. Inside the Application Support folder select (don’t open) the folder named DEVONthink.
Copy (Option-drag & drop) the DEVONthink folder to your Documents folder.
In the Documents folder, select (don’t open) the DEVONthink folder. Choose Command-I to open the Info panel. In the Info panel, rename the folder by adding the suffix “.dtBase” (no quotes, but case is important). Press Return and close the Info panel.
Double-click on the new database file, which will have the blue shell logo of DT Pro. That will launch DT Pro and open your database.
greetings bill and thank you. i had my database stored elsewhere so that must be why DT Pro didn’t convert it when i ran it for the first time.
