Empty DEVONthink's Trash Automagically

July 26, 2011 — Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann

Using Keyboard Maestro you can automate emptying DEVONthink’s trash including dismissing the confirmation dialog. For this create a new Keyboard Maestro macro with the following steps:

  1. Type Shift-Command-Delete.
  2. Pause for 0.25 seconds.
  3. Press the OK button.
  4. Execute some AppleScript code to empty the Finder’s trash.
  5. Post a notification.

If you like the idea of automating things, you should have a look at Keyboard Maestro.
