@canion @jack I still love DEVONthink but in practice it falls into my “neglected tools” category. I don’t know why, but I only end up using it a handful of times every year. I have a hard time making it routine, although there is still no better place for me to stash PDFs of articles that I want to hang onto forever (when I remember to do that). Is v3 of DT more nimble than earlier versions and thus better at notetaking for you?
@twelvety @canion I go in and out of DEVONthink, but it never goes away. Mostly it's my "file cabinet" for receipts, software licenses, financial records, etc. I also use it to house all of the web pages I "clip" from. Currently, I'm also keeping all project-related (PARA) files there. Notes go in Roam, files go in DTP. v3 is a huge upgrade.
@twelvety @jack V3 is a lot better. I’ve got it setup to automatically create a daily note. I edit in Markdown and it has a side by side rendered preview. I can also use wiki links within the markdown note for reference to others notes and reference files. Essentially replicating what NotePlan offers (except calendar integration).
@MitchWagner I received guidance on how to create a new file from this post at the DT forum. It’s starts as a blank file which I use as a bullet journal for anything that happens or I might need to remember about the day. Predominantly work notes. I leave the file open in a separate window so it’s always quickly available.
As for rich text, it does have some benefits but I’m finicky about visual consistency and I end up futzing too much with styles, etc. ensuring perfect consistency with rich text.
