DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.8.2: Indexing iCloud Drive and more

Coeur d'Alene (Idaho, USA), November 20th, 2014. — DEVONtechnologies, LLC updates all editions of its intelligent information and document manager DEVONthink as well as the smart notebook DEVONnote. Version 2.8.2 brings a few handy features, improvements, and bug fixes. The updates are free and recommended for all users.


Version 2.8.2 of all editions of DEVONthink fully supports indexing files and folders stored in iCloud Drive. An additional script indexes all user-generated folders on iCloud Drive without manually adding folders or documents to the database. Users can install it with a single click from the built-in Support Assistant.

DEVONthink 2.8.2 now indexes and searches documents created with the application Scapple. New preference options store an author name that the app reuses in various places where the user adds or creates metadata. Users can set a default image zoom and default PDF display modes, too. A new hidden preference option allows to disable the Dock icon badge.

DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.8.2 come with revised editing preferences. All HUD panels now appear optimized for OS X Yosemite. The new version improves DEVONthink's compatibility to Spotlight metadata importers, too. It also deals better with invalid filenames or damaged file systems. Finally, the updates fix bugs on OS X Yosemite and improve performance and reliability.

"One of DEVONthink's greatest strengths is its ability to accommodate almost any workflow. With version 2.8.2 we now integrate also files stored in iCloud Drive into DEVONthink. We keep our users in control. They decide if they want to keep their documents in the database, somewhere else on their hard drive, or in iCloud Drive," comments Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann, President of DEVONtechnologies.
