DEVONthink To Go 2.7.2

In the last few months we focused on getting DEVONthink 3 ready for prime-time and so it had become a bit quiet around DEVONthink To Go. Today, version 2.7.2 has passed Apple's review.

Our maintenance release brings the sync mechanism on par with DEVONthink 3, makes its handling of indexed items consistent to the Mac, and brings back the sync status sheet. Change the stacking order of PDF annotations and, finally, view highlight annotations added with DEVONthink on the Mac.

Dropbox to DEVONthink To Go

Sometimes you might want to add data from Dropbox into your DEVONthink databases. With DEVONthink on a Mac this is as simple as dragging and dropping. On iOS, however, Dropbox's mobile application doesn't allow for this kind of interaction. So is there an option for easily adding Dropbox data to DEVONthink To Go? (more)

Building the Perfect Database

One of the requests we occasionally receive is: "Tell me how to create and set up my database in DEVONthink." This seems like a simple enough question to answer, but in truth, it is not.
