Free App Integrates DEVONthink, Microsoft Word, and Endnote

December 16, 2014 — Jim Neumann, Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann

DEVONthink user and scientist Jim Falk has created a great little app to help him with his research work. The Mac app named FlunkeyFox facilitates using DEVONthink Pro (Office title: Learn more about DEVONthink Pro) together with Microsoft Word.

  • Creates Microsoft-Word-compatible links to documents in DEVONthink Pro
  • Reveals the corresponding document in DEVONthink when the link is clicked
  • Opens Google Scholar in Safari with the title of a highlighted document in DEVONthink Pro so that the correct citation can be found
  • Imports the citation into Endnote 7 and then into Microsoft Word as a footnote

Jim wrote the app written in AppleScript using GUI scripting and Livecode. It’s compiled as a standalone application but comes with source code. Jim publishes it under the GNU GPL-3 license.

Join the discussion about it in our user forum.

Update: FlunkeyFox is, unfortunately, no longer available.
