Also any jstor article matches every other jstor article b/c they all have more or less the same header page. Seems to be no way to set text or portions of documents to exclude. These false matches make it much less useful for academic use if you have a lot of papers from jstor.

So-called AI is pretty disappointing at first attempt...I loaded some 7000 documents in, and no matter what I search for, the first 7 or so "See Also" results are the same -- each of them is a pdf containing an entire book, so (presumably by virtue of their size) they have lots of words that match.

Devon Think is extraordinarily powerful but it is not really agood, simple, information catcher. I find these days I use Devon Think for big projects but prefer to use other, cheaper, programmes for day-to-day note taking and capture.


Can anyone help with pdf manual for DevonThink Pro v1.3.3?

I know it's not the latest but I'm going to start using DevonThink Pro v1.3.3 because I'm still at OS 10.3.9. Unfortunately, . DT Technologies does not support this version anymore and the other software SOHO, Yojhimbo etc does not fit my needs.

Appreciate if anyone could post a link for me to download.


I've been sometime inspecting DT Pro, Soho Notes and Yojimbo. This last one is the most user friendly and mac of them all, everything appears in spotlight, tags, smart folder, draggeable's great. however doesn't support subfolders, so if you want to track 4-5 research at the same time, it is useless. Soho is too bloated and DT lacks several functionalities. It has its own commercial database, sometimes it is slowand spotlight cannot index it. Hmm, no perfect research app yet.

Devonthink is an amazing information manager. I've tried StickyBrain and Yojimbo and in terms of power and features, Devonthink has it all.
Note: I use Pro, and the applescripts provided are indispensible

Superb information manager. Has really nice document management capabilities -- great for replacing PageKeeper or PaperPort for switchers.

DevonThink is simply the one piece of software that I would rescue if my computer would ever be in mortal danger.

Simply the best not taking software out there. It combines the best features of Circus Ponies, Yohjimbo, Safari, and Webstractor. The most powerfull feature is the AI for auto-sorting of newly added documents. It is actually better than the user at finding the appropriate group to add it to.
