Different ways: * Drag/drop links to DEVONthink groups. * Cmd-L [Open Location] in Safari to highlight the current page link in the address bar, followed by Cmd-( [Take Plain Note] to run the DEVONthink service. * Copy link to clipboard, then use "New With Clipboard" from DT's Dock menu to select the destination group. The last two methods use part of the URL as the item name in the database. How I change the name and its group depends on the item and context. More often...
DEVONthink has search-as-you-type capability. Nowadays I'm saving more bookmarks (links) in DT than browsers.
I wondered about that, too. It doesn't show up in Microsoft Windows Media - Sleek New Design screenshots. Was it Photoshop'd in (the .uk site's not responding so I can't look at the shots more closely)? Or hmurchison may want to retract his "Microsoft is going to kill napster" comment.
Sounds like that inheritance can work like a per-directory umask, probably obviating the need for the seriously limited global umask. Cool. What I'd really like is an automatic way to ensure consistent file permissions when installing software. Too many third party apps are installed with world writable directories, as running "find /Applications -type d -mode 777 -ls" will reveal.
Or, as the ReadMe file that Software Update installed says: The new build number will be reflected in the 'About This Mac' window once you log out and log back in.
In 10.3 it's annoying having to mouse-click buttons to confirm/cancel replacing a preexisting file when copying in Finder. I want (Replace) and command-. or (Stop) keyboard shortcuts back.
Okay, maybe it was more the potential for discussion of interesting topics, like what you wrote about metadata both here and in this thead. I was surprised how much your posts about it were like an eloquent summary of several I've written over the past few months. It's a topic I'd enjoy discussing more and it's still getting attention in that other thread, minus the llama fluff. Redundancy is inevitable and unavoidable with any larger online communication group.
Really. I tried using FFM with CodeTek Virtual Desktop and quickly abandoned it. Certain click-through inconsistencies can be annoying and that's the sort of UI refinement I'd prefer Apple focus (no pun) more attention on. Greetings from the other side of the O'ahu, mmmpie, if indeed you're in Honolulu.
Well, okay, that was a bit strong...Gee, really? Never mind. Actually, the topics here are generating some interesting discussion. Sorry for the distraction.Ahh, those Usenet times. Like we needed that reminder.
Concord, While I may agree there are ways UIs could be more "adaptive" to individual choice your condescendingly fanatical rants haven't been a particularly convincing or friendly way of discussing that topic. Why not try giving people more credit for realizing the issues involved rather than accusing them of not understanding? Thanks for mentioning that SA article, Kickaha. Maybe I can find the April issue in the library...
