DEVONthink 2.9.5

DEVONtechnologies has updated all three editions of DEVONthink (Personal, Pro, and Pro Office) to version 2.9.5 with workarounds for a variety of issues introduced with the overhauled PDF library in macOS 10.12 Sierra. The three editions of the personal information manager also now include thumbnails in notifications, enable you to zoom videos to 25 or 50 percent, add recurring schedule for every X minutes, allow you to bring back dismissed alerts (see Preferences > General), speed up cleaning of Dropbox and WebDAV sync stores, and improve reliability of moving items to external folders. To avoid data loss, DEVONthink Pro and Pro Office no longer let you create and synchronize databases in the Desktop and Documents folders in Sierra if these folders are synchronized by iCloud Drive. (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; 25 percent discount for TidBITS members on all editions of DEVONthink; 10.9+)
