I’ve asked about this subject somewhat obliquely in a couple other posts and didn’t get a response so I’ll dedicate a separate topic specifically to it.
I will sometimes get a document where after importing into the database, it’s in there but it doesn’t seem to BE anywhere. I’ll import it (via printing to PDF or capturing a web archive) and will see it’s not in my inbox. So I’ll do a search for text content and it will come up in the search results, but it’s not in any folder (I have auto classify turned off). I look at ‘show info’ for the document but it doesn’t give me any information about where in the DTPO database the document is residing.
So, it’s like it’s in there without BEING anywhere.
OK, then if I assume the document is held at the root level, how do I view documents held here? I can’t click on it, if I click in the pane that has all my folders, I cannot do so without selecting some folder and thereby selecting something other than root.
Given that button, I’m far more comfortable with documents residing at that level. Thanks for the input.
Question: is there a way to specify that all documents imported automatically go to the inbox? I could’ve swore I read documentation that says I can specify that behavior but I’m not seeing it anywhere in preferences.
I guess the one issue I have remaining here is what I perceive to be inconsistent behavior upon importing a document. Sometimes they go to my inbox, sometimes they go to the home level, and I have no idea why the difference. Perhaps there’s a perfectly valid reason and I’m just not aware of it, but to me it seems random.
