DEVONthink/DEVONnote 2.9.8

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

DEVONtechnologies has updated all three editions of DEVONthink [1] (Personal, Pro, and Pro Office) and DEVONnote [2] to version 2.9.8, adding .fountain to the list of known plain text extensions and improving handling of graphics card switching on MacBook laptops with a discrete graphics card. All DEVONthink editions now enable you to specify whether you want to open Markdown documents in edit or preview mode by default, get a revamped Media preferences pane, improve scanning of multiple pages, reduce flickering while moving or resizing PDF annotations (in macOS 10.12.2 Sierra or later), fix a bug where the PDF sidebar did not support reordering and dropping, and fix a crash related to Dropbox. Global smart groups in DEVONthink Pro and Pro Office editions now support manually updating indexed items. (All updates are free. DEVONthink Pro Office, $149.95 new, release notes [3]; DEVONthink Professional, $79.95 new, release notes [4]; DEVONthink Personal, $49.95 new, release notes [5]; DEVONnote, $24.95 new, release notes; 25 percent discount for TidBITS members [6] on all editions of DEVONthink and DEVONnote. 10.9+)
