Copy web site to DEVONthink

Posted by Patrice Neff Sat, 21 Apr 2007

I’ve been using DEVONthink Pro for writing notes and cataloging my know-how for a year now. I’m trying to copy news I read and want to keep there.

Using the internal web browser of DEVONthink it’s possible to copy web sites as rich text into DEVONthink. But it’s a hassle to copy first the web site link into DEVONthink, then open it, and from there create the rich text note. So I’ve always wanted to do that from Safari directly.

Lo and behold, it’s easy to do it from Safari: In the services menu (which I so far almost never used) there is a DEVONthink pro entry. Just select some part of the current web site then select Safari->Services->DEVONthink Pro->Take Rich Note. The short cut is Apple+).

It’s even possible to add the selection to the currently selected document in DEVONthink using Append Rich Note.
