DEVONthink To Go 3.5

May 25, 2022 — Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann

This update for DEVONthink To Go brings a new text editor for plain text, Markdown, RTF, and the HTML-based formatted notes. Other enhancements include a three-column layout, more keyboard commands, and new PDF view options. The update also improves the overall performance and reliability.

The new text editor supports, e.g., images and tables, pencil drawings, videos, and sounds in RTF and formatted notes. You can also enter text with the device’s camera (on compatible devices) or the Apple Pencil. If you prefer Markdown, we have something for you, too: editing Markdown happens in WYSIWYG, like in DEVONthink for Mac. There’s a better default styling, and you can provide your own custom CSS without including a stylesheet.

Accessing databases, smart groups, and settings without losing the navigation position is now possible with the new three-column layout. Reorder databases and use the many new keyboard commands now neatly arranged in categories. Other enhancements include new PDF view options, external microphone support for voice notes, and the possibility to exclude groups from tagging without using DEVONthink for Mac. The PDF search field by reuses the search term entered into the main search field.

And finally, DEVONthink To Go 3.5 shows more details in the sync status sheet. It also more thoroughly verifies sync stores, and uploads to and downloads from iCloud (CloudKit) up to 1.5 times faster.

You can find a complete list of all changes by choosing ?⃝ > Release Notes in the toolbar of the database list. We recommend this free update to all users of DEVONthink To Go. Get it from the Updates area of the App Store.
