In today's world, everything is digital. From shopping receipts to important research papers, your life often fills your hard drive in the form of emails, PDFs, Word documents, multimedia files and more. Questions eventually pop up, like where do you store all of this stuff? How do you organize these very different file types, and even better, how do you find the exact file you're looking for the second you need it? It's almost as if you need a second brain just to keep your digital life straight.

DEVONthink is the solution to the digital age conundrum. It is your second brain, the one and only database for all your digital files, be they PDFs, emails, Word docs or even multimedia files. Boasting a refined artificial intelligence, DEVONthink is exceedingly flexible and adapts to your personal needs. And if the files are not digital yet, digitize them with DEVONthink Pro Office.

Use it as your document repository, your filing cabinet, your email archive, or your project organizer; DEVONthink can do it all. You can even collect and organize data from the web for your own use, enrich it with sound and movie files from your hard drive, and then export the finished product as a website or to an Apple Pages document to print, should you so desire. Or copy the content to your iPod! The possibilities are only as limited as your imagination.

DEVONthink Professional Office extends DEVONthink Pro with three additional modules: Pro-grade email archiving, paper capture including optical character recognition, and integrated web sharing (search only.)

What is new in version 2.8.3:

Improved

  • Classification. Improves "See Also", "Classify", "Concordance", automatic grouping, and summarizing.
  • Quick-Look-based views, e.g. Microsoft Office or OpenOffice documents, support selecting and copying text.
  • Double-clicking OpenOffice documents opens them in the default application, similar to iWork of Microsoft Office documents.
  • More user interface optimizations for OS X Yosemite.
  • Converting indexed markdown files to rich text supports linked local images.
  • Automatic Wiki-linking support for plain text, e.g. Japanese Katakana.
  • Scripts of the "Scripts" menu are cached and therefore properties are persistent during runtime.
  • Handling of "Scripts" menu more compatible to third-party software.
  • Overall performance and reliability.

Fixed
