DEVONthink 2.9.8: Revised Media Preferences and More

December 1, 2016 — Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann

Markdown is a brilliant way to unobstrusively add basic formatting to plain text files so that the result is readable to both humans and machines. DEVONthink 2.9.8 revamps its Media preferences and adds a new option that lets you choose how you want to open Markdown files, in “pure” editing mode or as graphically pleasing HTML.

In addition, version 2.9.8 improves auto-saving further, makes scanning multiple pages more comfortable, and — you guessed it — fixes more issues with macOS Sierra’s changes in PDFKit. That’s the part of the system that is responsible for displaying PDF files. If you’re a tagger you’ll like that you now drag tags or words from the concordance into the Tags bar or Info panel to add new tags to documents or groups.

We recommend these free updates to all users. Get the new Mac versions directly by using the apps’ update function or our Download page.
