DEVONthink/DEVONnote 2.8.6

DEVONtechnologies has updated all three editions of DEVONthink (Personal, Pro, and Pro Office) and DEVONnote to version 2.8.6 with support for the public beta of OS X 10.11 El Capitan (see “Apple Opens Public Betas of OS X 10.11 El Capitan and iOS 9,” 13 July 2015). All four apps also enable you to drag Calendar events into RTF documents to create a back link to the appointment, use the name of the top group as a placeholder in templates, improve naming of duplicated documents with a filename extension in their name, and update the French and German localizations.

The three editions of DEVONthink now support images referenced in Markdown documents (with keywords imported from Bookends references converted to RTF properties), preserve the appearance of PDF text annotations created by other applications (including borders and background color), and improve HTML-to-text conversion. The Pro Office and Professional editions no longer support the creation of databases in iCloud, Dropbox, OneDrive, or Google Drive folders or inside other databases. (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 all editions of DEVONthink and DEVONnote. 10.7.5+)
