DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.7.1

Send Article to a Friend

Following up on a number of issues introduced in the recently released version 2.7, DEVONtechnologies has updated all three versions of DEVONthink (Personal, Pro, and Pro Office) and DEVONnote to version 2.7.1. In particular, the update fixes an issue where DEVONthink opens in addition to the Sorter after a restart, and it fixes compatibility with DEVONthink To Go for both DEVONthink and DEVONnote. A few additional glitches have been fixed in DEVONthink, including random issues with synchronization, changes in formatting for nots after links were added, and a problem that prevented double-clicking already open databases in the Finder from bringing them to the front. (All updates are free. DEVONthink Pro Office, $149.95 new, release notes; DEVONthink Professional, $79.95 new, release notes; DEVONthink Personal, $49.95 new, release notes; DEVONnote, $24.95 new, release notes; 25 percent discount for TidBITS members on DEVONnote and all editions of DEVONthink)
