If this is some kind of a feature request post for DT3, than I’ll add my thoughts as well…
I really would appreciate a possibility to arrange all separate windows on my own and maybe even take separate windows out of the program-framing and let the windows float. That is a really nice feature at Adobe products, I do not want to miss and gives me the opportunity to arrange every frame as it fits my monitor arrangments.
This leads to a windows-profiling setup. Would be awesome if I can set up two profiles (one for single-monitor setup and one for dual-monitor-setup.)
Possiblity to rearrange the sequence of the left sidebar with Favorites, Global Inbox, Databases, etc as I wish. I do not use favorites that much, so I really would like to hide that and put it further down, keeping smart groups further up for example.
Advanced Reminder function or advanced script to put it into omnifocus or calender with a specific date and time for reminder.
Happy to join in as well. Still hoping for automated input of highlighted text along with author, etc from Bookends.
This would depend on Bookends’ AppleScript capabilities. I don’t know if it returns anything like highlighted text via scripting.
I’m told it’s possible. I lack the script-writing skills. As to why, I’m happy to offer an explanation. First of all, I follow Dr. Taekman’s blog. He Is a power user and blogs for the academic on effective ways to work. DevonThink already imports bibliographic information and abstract from Bookends. For proposal, presentation and manuscript creation, it would be perfect to be able to imports refs into DevonThink with the key points that I have highlighted (originally blogged for other app combinations by Dr. T) available to me, rather than going back into Bookends and locating the information. This would create extraordinarily useful reference files.
Thanx for the question.
I’m told it’s possible.
If you’re told it’s possible, did this person also offer the script itself?
Happy to respond to that question via direct email rather than this blog.
I’d like to also opt for the behaviour you describe in item 2.: to keep the right sidebar closed at wish. In DT3 it opens with each search and have to be closed manually. I would like the inspector window to be opened and closed manually and not - unwanted - automatically.
The current auto-opening behaviour in DT3 is disrupting. I had hoped for a possibility to shut it off by now (beta3). I very much like my applications staying clean and simple while working and not forcing me for extra clicking or typing.
I am also interested, why not discussing it here?
Still looking for the ability to reduce thumbnail size in View as List/Widescreen/Thumbnails when viewing as a single column.
I noticed somewhere (in another view) that there was a slider bar to reduce image size - can it be replicated for thumbnails?
Maybe (indeed, quite likely) I’m missing something, but database-specific default views. So, database one always has the annotations pane in the inspector when first clicking into it, database two always opens with the general info inspector pane active, etc.
Could you please post a screenshot? Thanks!
Just installed beta4. Thanks for changing the inspector behaviour when performing a search to auto-close when auto-opened!
Also, the ability to re-order tabs would be really good.
Customise Due Date. Format options to include yyyy-mm-dd. Same customisation for created added and modification dates. I prefix entries with yyyy-mm-dd and would like the consistency throughout.
User Default setting for Due Date. For example, I’d like to be able to set it at Once and know that each new entry would default to that, rather than have to manually select.
