I know that in 2.0, you will be able to use two databases and that currently it is not supported, however, I live two lifes. A professional life and a personal life. I have two major databases that I am finding myself using all the time. It has become a real pain to keep opening the other database (the one I always need is never the one I have open).
1.x does not support multiple databases but I found a way that seems to be working for a small cost. I can create a copy of the application DEVONthink Pro. I named mine DEVONthink - Personal. I can even change the icon for that copy. Now, when tabbing through my apps, I see the normal DEVONthink Pro icon, it has my professional database open. I then see my personal icon (a person) that has my personal database open.
This method seems to be working just fine. Does anyone have any reason I shouldn’t be doing this? I’d hate to trash both of my databases!
