DEVONthink/DEVONnote 2.9.15

DEVONtechnologies has updated all three editions of DEVONthink (Personal, Pro, and Pro Office) and DEVONnote to version 2.9.15 with a revised PDF sidebar that deals with some long-standing issues with OS X 10.11 El Capitan and later. All four apps add a new URL command for creating groups (x-devonthink://createGroup), improve compatibility with macOS 10.13 High Sierra, enhance memory management and handling of background tasks, and fix an issue where importing previously exported folders into the Tags group could create duplicate tags. They also get enhanced clipboard, drag-and-drop, and keyboard navigation support.

All three editions of DEVONthink resolve links in internal HTML or Markdown files to match DEVONthink To Go and other compatible apps (such as MathJax), bring extended drag-and-drop support for Tinderbox, fix a bug that caused an edited HTML page to change its URL to the path of the page, resolve an issue where scanning from network scanners timed out, and address an issue with High Sierra where it was no longer possible to scroll images with the mouse wheel. DEVONthink Pro Office improves support of the Apple Mail plug-in and email archiving in High Sierra and improves the Import, OCR & Delete folder action script.

DEVONtechnologies always offers a 25 percent educational discount, but it’s bumping that discount to 40 percent for students and teachers through 15 September 2017 (requires a valid student or faculty ID).
