Thank you @mwra for merging the first DTP-contributions in Updates for v7.2.0 to this new thread.
Some first impressions and experiences
Drag and Drop works fine. The two new attributes
SourceModified are a delight to work with. Thanks.
dragged-dropped-eMails from DTP to TBX
Dragging and dropping eMails (stored in Devonthink) into Tinderbox does result in gibberisch both in
And: The auto-populated
$URL does not show the complete link back to the eMail stored in DTP but only always just: x-devonthink-item://true.
PDF to TBX
As @PaulWalters points out: Problems with PDFs almost always derive from bad scans:
The most common complaint about PDFs (other than the messes that Sierra created with PDFkit) is “my text is gibberish”. And the most common reason is “your scan is bad”.
As far as can see: All PDFs I dragged-dropped into TBX (v.7.2) are gibberish (both
$Text) only as long as I do not check
$AutoFetch. As soon as I check
$Text are properly displayed.
Better, though, one follows @PaulWalters’ suggestion to convert PDF to Plain Text --> then import this Plain Text file into TBX. Thanks, Paul.
Or even better: One converts PDF to RTF / RTFD whereby the latter nicely displays even tables etc. from the original PDF. Cool!
Meanwhile, @eastgate reports that they are investigating the PDF import issue. Thanks.
