copy as link = copy as citation

For cross-work with DT, I'd like to be able to make my "copy as link" style to simply be the same as command-Y, {name,date,uniquID} I tried to make a format style like this, but it doesn't seem like the uniqueID is available as an output. Could an option be added to the general preferences for "temp...

Re: suggestion for handling "local links"

I had assumed that Devonthink's internal structure stayed consistent, but I was informed that I was wrong—paths to files can change internally. So using paths as potential attachments would not work. Sorry for bringing up a dead end. Hi, I realize this is a bit late to add to this thread, but it mi...

Re: small suggestion

I do this on occasion, but I find sometimes I click to fast, and the click that should "grab" the item ends up highlighting the whole field :D Then I give up and just hit copy, mouse to the field and hit paste.

small suggestion

Very small suggestion that would nonetheless be helpful.

Can their be a right-click option available in the Title field, so that highlighted text in the field would be made the Short title?

Thanks

Re: suggestion for handling "local links"

Ah, I see.

I've emailed you an applescript. The script grabs the path of the DT file as well as its DT link, and places them on the clipboard (with a return in between them).

Would BE be able to use the path as the attachment, and add the DT link to the URL field?

Re: suggestion for handling "local links"

I think we mean the same thing. I'm assuming BE looks at the dropped PDF for a DOI and then searches the internet for autofill, right? Instead of "making a new reference" when dropping a pdf to BE, can a URL path be dropped and that PDF looked at for its DOI?

Re: suggestion for handling "local links"

Okay Jon, I'm getting somewhere. DT is scriptable, and someone on the DT forum provided me with a simple script that hands the path of the file to the clipboard, I'm going to update the script so that it grabs both the path and the DT internal link. When I'm done, I'll give it to you and perhaps it ...

Re: suggestion for handling "local links"

Yep, I've seen this and make use of it. Perhaps I/we want to have our cake and eat it too :-) simple note-taking is best in the bibliographic manager (for me anyway) so to see the PDF in BE is desired. But major searches and research is done in DT and I'd prefer to manage my PDF's in DT, making full...

suggestion for handling "local links"

I made this suggestion in the Devonthink forum, the Sente forum, and want to suggest it here too. I'm always looking for better integration with Devonthink and I've thought of something that could be a really good means of integration. I'd like to see BE be able to handle "local links" as if they we...
