DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.7.3

Send Article to a Friend

DEVONtechnologies has updated all three versions of DEVONthink (Personal, Pro, and Pro Office) and DEVONnote to version 2.7.3, with DEVONthink gaining support for importing items from Yojimbo. (Note that this new feature is available only if you’ve purchased DEVONthink directly from DEVONtechnologies, and not the Mac App Store.) The three editions also add filtering by date plus time, support for iWork documents containing Quick Look previews when exported as a Web site, improve the speed and reliability of the Quick Look panel on OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and 10.9 Mavericks, and fix an issue that caused slow indexing and importing of items dragged from the Finder to the Sorter.

The Pro Office edition improves support for ScanSnap, improves the reliability and performance of email archiving, and enhances the Web interface to make it more compatible with iOS devices. DEVONnote receives the date plus time filtering addition and several user interface improvements and fixes. (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.)
