Toggle the Sorter with a Hotkey

5. August 2014 — Jim Neumann

Some of you have expressed the desire for a hotkey to show or hide the DEVONthink Sorter. Instead of waiting for us to implement yet another hotkey, you can easily do it yourself.

  1. Go into System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > App Shortcuts.
  2. Press the Plus (+) button and select your edition of DEVONthink.
  3. Type Show Sorter and add your desired hotkey. I used ⌃S.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 but type Quit Sorter in the second one. Assign the same hotkey.

Now you can start and stop the Sorter as your leisure. Note that you can use this to start and stop e.g. the Web Sharing server in DEVONthink Pro Office, too. Also, note that this method can be used in applications other than ours. You just need a menu item that toggles between two states.
