Apologies if this issue belongs in the inter-app workflows but figured this was a basic enough for here. I also read throughthis thread but couldn’t figure out how to address the following:
I have a container with an onaction to assign prototypes of notes I drag into it from other apps (i.e. a text file from day one, individual notes from mac notes).
a key part of the prototype is for specific attributes to display - in this case $container & $path and in other cases a user-created attribute I named $citation
It is working fine so far except for when I drag text files directly from DevonThink - When I drag from devon think into the container, the visual aspects of the dragged note follow the prototype but the attributes do not and instead show up as:
If I drag the text file out of DevonThink onto the desktop and from desktop into the container - the onaction works fine (although I then lose the link to DevonThink and it adds an extra step)
the text of the original file from DevonThink does not show up in the note that is dragged from Devon into Tinderbox - I know I can copy and paste the text into the note but that seems to be an extra step.
What am I missing or what can I do to drag directly from DevonThink and have the prototype applied to the note with the desired attributes displayed?
