A recent update to DEVONthink 3 (3.8.7) might be of interest to anyone experimenting with using DT3 to index a folder-full of Bike files:
Today’s release brings several additions, improvements, and fixes. A major improvement is that highlights in HTML-based files can now be displayed in the Document > Annotations inspector. These highlights can also be summarized.
i.e. DT3 now:
- indexes any phrases or passage marked by Bike > Format > Highlight, listing such texts in the DEVONthink
- can generate
summarydocuments from the highlit passages in any number of Bike outlines.
See, from the DT3 manual:
Creates a document with all highlighted text passages of the currently selected documents. In case of items located in multiple databases the summary is created in the global inbox. From the submenu, choose to create the summary in a rich text document, Markdown document, or a sheet.
The summary documents can take the form of a tab-separated value list, displayed in DEVONthink as a tabulated sheet.
