Trouble exporting text of 40 files DTP3 to TBX

Hello TBXers,
I’m having a hard time with something I assumed was simple: getting the text of a bunch of files into Tinderbox. I can do it with TBX’s “watch,” but I can’t make an assigned prototype stick even with readonly turned off.

According to aTbRef, I should be able to drag file text from DTP. I can, but when they’re dragged all together, only the displayed attributes show up and not $Text. Same thing when I do it just one at a time. I should also be able to export then drag into TBX. That doesn’t work either.

What could I be missing here?


Is there in fact text in the documents you’re dragging from DEVONthink Pro to Tinderbox? What sort of documents are these?
