I recently wanted to act on some “text-only” content in a DT3 folder, and realized this is a great job for Tinderbox.
Now I’d never tried to do this before, but I was dimly aware this was a supported feature – but I couldn’t figure it out for the first fifteen minutes or so, and I was going to ask "how do I do this?.
Then I stumbled across this screenshot in an earlier post on this form: Possible problem with Watching DEVONthink Groups in Tinderbox, and I was able to set up “watching a group” by doing the following:
- Create a note
- Open Inspector
- Select category “Watch”
- Select sub-category “DevonThink Group”
- Within DT3, right-click on the group, select “Copy Item Link”
- Paste this within the inspector
… and after some time, voila! … the selected note becomes a container for new notes corresponding to entries from DT3. Problem solved!
So now my question is: is this the best way to set up a watch on a DT3 group? (or have I just worked around it in an obtuse way right now?)
