DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.8.11: Usability enhancements & more
Coeur d'Alene (Idaho, USA), June 8th, 2016. — DEVONtechnologies, LLC updates all editions of its intelligent information and document manager DEVONthink as well as the smart notebook DEVONnote. DEVONthink 2.8.11 brings a revised view/edit pane, better compatibility to RSS 1.0 feeds, and user interface improvements. DEVONthink Pro Office also comes with a rewritten OCR metadata entry panel and email archiving enhancements. All editions fix minor bugs and glitches too. The updates are free and recommended for all users.
The revised view/edit pane of DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.8.11 shows icons for documents that cannot be displayed. Automatically opened panels such as the Activity or Log panels are no longer activated by default. This way they don't unnecessarily interrupt the user's workflow.
Adding metadata to PDFs created from scans using text recognition (OCR) becomes much easier with DEVONthink Pro Office 2.8.11. The rewritten entry panel can be resized and allows to browse all pages of the created PDF. Users can select and copy text or use the contextual menu for more options. Also, email archiving with DEVONthink Pro Office fixes attachments on-the-fly. This improves viewing, indexing and converting of attachments. It no longer indexes corrupt messages, too.
DEVONthink Pro and Pro Office 2.8.11 are more compatible to RSS 1.0 news feeds. Images in news articles scale by default to full width now. All editions of DEVONthink and DEVONnote also fix several bugs and minor glitches.
"A great deal of all information we receive today comes in electronic form and can be immediately used e.g. in DEVONthink. But if it arrives on paper it has to be scanned. Text recognition makes it machine-readable and searchable. Because this is so important to our users, DEVONthink Pro Office 2.8.11 further improves its straightforward OCR workflow with a resizable and interactive metadata entry panel. No more typing account numbers from the paper original just to name the document, no more guesswork which of the 23 invoices asks for metadata," says Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann, President of DEVONtechnologies.
