I am running DEVONthink PE 1.9a. The program hangs during certain searches. I’ve been able to reproduce the problem as follows:
- In the browser window, the Find criteria is set to: All/All Words/No Case/Database.
- Nothing is selected on the left pane.
- I start typing the following characters in the Find box: *co
- The spinning beach ball starts and does not go away unless I force quit DT.
It looks like the wildcard “*” is causing the hang, although not in every scenario.
Same freezing occurs if I open up the Search tool and using the same search criteria as above, starting with the “*” wildcard.
Typing “*co” or “*po” (without the quotes) and clicking on the search button will cause DT to crash.
I have applied all of the Tools utilities: Verify & Repair, Backup & Optimize, Restore Backup, Rebuild Database. But the problem persists. I also tried using DT on another Mac with a different database, but the same crash occurs.
Does anyone else notice this?
