DEVONthink

Tinderbox can now automatically import selected groups of records from DEVONthink Pro (and DEVONthink Pro Office).

To connect Tinderbox to a DEVONthink group, create a root level container (and it can only be at root level) to hold the imported notes. set the container's $DEVONthinkGroup attribute to the unique DEVONthink ID of the group to be imported (this is the group's Item ID).

Currently, only one watched group is allowed per TBX document. From v7.3.1, multiple groups are supported, i.e. more than one (root level) watched DEVONThink group.

This is not a sync mechanism, but a method to pull current DEVONthink data into Tinderbox

The DEVONthink target must be a group and not an individual item (if necessary, place a single item in its own group). Tinderbox will now automatically import or update that container whenever the TBX document is reopened, and periodically thereafter as part of the AutoFetch cycle.

The resulting imported notes inherit from a built-in prototype named "Imported From DEVONthink", making it easy to set common key attributes or visual appearance.
