Taking Smart Notes with DEVONthink has just received a major update. If you’ve already purchased the book, you get the update for free. Just use your receipt to access your files..

After diving in and studying other note taking apps like Obsidian and Roam Research, I returned to DEVONthink with more conviction than ever. But I also came back with some neat ideas to implement.

Taking Smart Notes with DEVONthink is now 20% larger than at its original release, with over 100 pages added.

The update includes:

  • A significantly updated set of Keyboard Maestro macros. Also available is an appendix referencing macros throughout the text
  • A study workflow using a “Leitner” study system
  • Updates to using bracketed WikiLinks, taking advantage of the new DEVONthink option to combine WikiLink options
  • A daily journal workflow
  • An experimental “sidebar” from a link
  • An updated style-sheet

… and much more!
