DEVONThink's '.tsv' files are treated like text '.txt' files when dragged to Tinderbox for tab-delimited text data import.
DEVONThink offers OPML export which Tinderbox can happily consume.
DEVONThink 'item links', which use the protocol
x-devonthink-item:// can be used in $URL (or any user URL-type attribute) to open such links, assuming the DEVONThink database is running on (a drive mounted on) the same Mac - these links only work locally. The basic link looks like this:
The long code string is a DEVONThink unique ID for that asset, whether stored within DEVONThink or is just indexed by it. The URL format also allows 3 optional forms of suffix to these URLs (as at DEVONThink v2.4.1):
?page=4. This will open (paginated) documents scrolled to the indicated page. Note however that the index in the URL is zero-based, so page #1 is '0', etc. Thus
?page=4will open the fifth page of the document (i.e. 0->1->2->3->4). Example:
?search=Albert Einstein. For text documents, DEVONThink will search the document, highlight all the matches and scroll to the first one. Note that the example given may not work as it is not URL Encoded, better would be to use
?search=Albert%20Einstein. For PDF documents, they must have a text layer, e.g. scans saved as PDFs but not OCR-ed won't work with this method. Example:
?time=80.4. For movies files such as MOV, MP4, this will open the movie at the time code, in seconds, as given. Thus to open a movie at 1 minute 20 seconds, use 80 seconds. Decimals of seconds are allowed. Apparently the method does not work for audio files like MP3, but this may change in due course. Example:
Whilst the Edit menu and right-click in file listing in DEVONThink will copy a 'bare' item link (i.e. with no special suffix as above), right clicking on display of a partially played movie will add a
?time suffix. similarly, right clicking the scrolled display of a paginated document will append a
From v6.3.1, dragging a DEVONThink item into Tinderbox will set the newly-created note's $URL to a URL pointing to the source DEVONThink database item.
From Tinderbox 6.4.0 and DEVONThink v2.8.8, Tinderbox notes can be copied/pasted to DEVONThink. Copy note in Tinderbox. In DEVONThink use Data menu, New -> from clipboard (Cmd+N). The following map to DEVONThink:
- $Name - > new RTF item title
- $Text -> text of item
- $Tags -> item's tags
- $NoteUrl -> item's URL
