Descriptions for DEVONthink Pro Server 3.6.0

DEVONthink is DEVONtechnologies’ document and information management solution. It supports a large variety of file formats and stores them in a database enhanced by artificial intelligence (AI). Many document formats can be directly viewed, edited, and annotated. A powerful search language finds documents in an instant, smart groups keep them always at hand.

Sophisticated organization tools, AI-based techniques that handle even the largest collections, and numerous integration options make DEVONthink the work environment of choice for researchers, lawyers, and educators. Smart rules, flexible reminders, and deep AppleScript support allow automating even complex repeating tasks. And with its fast, reliable, and secure synchronization users keep their data available on all their Macs. DEVONthink To Go for iPad and iPhone completes the DEVONthink ecosystem.

DEVONthink Pro 3 Features:

  • Keeps your data together
  • Scans your paper
  • Archives your email
  • Assists you with A.I.
  • Syncs your data securely
  • Automates repeating tasks
  • Lets you share your data

User Interface

As the most obvious change, DEVONthink 3 brings a completely overhauled single-window interface including support for dark mode. The extended sidebar gives you access to your databases, favorites, smart groups, smart rules, and filters as well as to a new reading list, import options, and more. Inspectors present metadata about documents and groups, offer AI assistance, and let you set reminders or search within the document.

Capturing text, audio, and voice notes, screenshots, or web clippings becomes much easier with the redesigned Sorter. More subtle are the numerous changes to the search engine which now better supports Asian languages, indexes also PDF and RTF attachments, and highlights search hits more precisely. Its enhanced search language allow you to use prefixes to run complex searches without touching the mouse. Focus the displayed items on tags, dates, marks, or geolocation using filters.

Office & Teamwork

If you’re working in an office environment DEVONthink 3 brings you a new 64-bit optimized OCR engine that supports multiple CPU cores, Asian languages, barcode detection, and multiple output formats. Add custom imprints to images and PDFs including placeholder text and Bates numbering.

The rewritten web interface gives your coworkers or clients access to your databases even when they’re not using a Mac. User accounts and per-database permissions let you define what web visitors see and can do. TLS support makes sure all connections are encrypted.

Other improvements include geolocation metadata, ratings, and custom, typed metadata that you can add to all documents and, of course, search. When importing documents, you can let DEVONthink convert metadata to tags, and tag images automatically using machine learning.

Markdown and HTML documents can be edited side-by-side with a rendered preview, sheets with tabular data support specific data types and have a form view. Formatting and editing bars keep frequently used tools at hand and adding cross-references has become more versatile with improved WikiLinking and support for the square bracked syntax. DEVONthink 3 now also supports EPUB ebooks and, useful for research, collects highlighted search hits and metadata for you into summary documents.


Last but not least, we have massively extended DEVONthink’s automation options for version 3. Smart rules perform actions based on events and search queries, where events can be anything from a scheduled time to the arrival of a newly imported document. You can also attach one-time or repeating reminders to any document. They support several alarm options including running scripts. Insert dynamic data in templates, imprints, or smart rules without requiring any programming skills.

Of course, DEVONthink 3 brings also many under-the-hood enhancements. To name just a few: better file system integration for indexed files, better background processing, e.g. for email archiving, indexing, or generating thumbnails, and an improved overall performance.

What’s New in DEVONthink Pro Server 3.6.0

This release brings compatibility for macOS 11 Big Sur, with both cosmetic and technological improvements. Also, document links are a focus in this version. Databases are scanned for link relationships between documents: either outgoing links or incoming Links (“back links”). The numbers of incoming and outgoing links can also be used to search, as smart criteria, or to sort the item list.

Other enhancements include better in-document searching via the Search inspector which now allows wildcards and operators, e.g., `DEVONthink NEAR support`. We have added more Markdown support including a new Daily Journal template and creating a table of contents file in Markdown. There is now the ability to duplicate and replicate via the Move to popover when modifier keys are held. PDFs with a table of contents can be split by chapters into separate documents. The AppleScript dictionary also received several additions and improvements, including faster processing of selected items. Lastly, there are performance and reliability improvements for DEVONthink and its synchronization.


  • Added support for scanning documents for links to and from other documents. This is supported for all newly created files in DEVONthink’s native formats. Existing databases will be scanned the first time they’re opened.
  • Added File > Close > All Except command to leave the current database open.
  • Added an Enable Operators & Wildcards option to the Search inspector allowing use of operators and wildcards for in-document searches. If disabled, the search terms will be treated as substrings. The Edit > Find > Find Next/Previous commands and next/previous buttons in the inspector are available when this option is enabled.
  • Added Tools > Split PDF into Chapters command to split one or more selected PDF documents having multiple pages and a table of contents with multiple entries into the separate chapter documents.
  • Added Go > To Document to quickly open a document in the current main window if the View/Edit pane is visible or a new document window, if not.
  • Added Copy Section Link and Copy Page Link to the contextual menu of the Table of Contents inspector, for Markdown and PDF documents.
  • Added an Incoming Links pane to the Document > Links inspector showing incoming links (“back links”) from other documents. This includes WikiLinks from plain and rich texts, as well as Markdown documents. Clicking on an incoming link displays the backlinked document. Dragging incoming links to Markdown or rich text documents with Command-Option held is also supported.
  • Added support for querying or sorting on the number of incoming or outgoing links to many sections of the interface, including smart groups, smart rules, advanced searching, sorting the item list, etc.
  • Added property icons to the item list denoting items have incoming or outgoing links.
  • Added Daily Journal — Markdown template to Data > New from Template > Productivity. Also, updated and renamed the original Daily Journal template to Daily Journal – Text.
  • Added two new services to capture bookmarks, DEVONthink 3: Capture Bookmark, and to add links to the Reading List, DEVONthink 3: Add to Reading List. Both require having a URL selected.
  • Added a File Location pop-up menu to the Tools > Filters > Info pane to filter imported or indexed items in the current location.
  • Added a submenu to Tools > Create Table of Contents to create a table of contents as rich text or Markdown document.
  • Added Copy Section Link to the contextual menu of the Markdown editor.
  • Added `Any Extension` criterion for use with smart groups, smart rules, and searches. This can be used to check for filenames with or without an extension, e.g., `Extension is not Any Extension`.
  • Added AppleScript terms `incoming references` and `outgoing references` to get explicit link relationships between records.
  • Added AppleScript terms `incoming Wiki references` and `outgoing Wiki references` to get automatic WikiLink relationships between records.
  • Added AppleScript term `selected records` for application and main windows. Contrary to the still supported `selection` property this supports bulk retrieval of properties of the selection. Queries like `name of selected records` or `UUID of selected records` are up to 100 times faster.
  • Added a generic UUID for the global inbox for use with item links, smart groups, and smart rules.
  • Added hidden preference `DisableHighlightColorMapping` to use the same highlight colors for web documents in both light and dark mode on macOS Mojave and later.
  • Added hidden preference `ExcludeOpenedDatabasesFromTimeMachine`. This option is off by default.


  • The Data > Move To command can now be used with files open in document windows.
  • Opening favorite documents via Go > Favorites tries to open them in the current main window if the View/Edit pane is visible.
  • The sidebar header of main windows now shows the number of unread items in the Reading List.
  • Tooltips of results, e.g., search results or See Also & Classify results, are shown if the location of the item is abbreviated.

  • Changed shortcut of Data > Launch URL to ⌃⌘U and Data > Launch URL in Background to ⌃⌥⌘U.
  • Holding the Option or Command-Option modifier keys can be used to duplicate or replicate items via the Data > Move To popover. The title of the popover is updated according to the current modifier keys.
  • Both Data > Move to external folder and automatic moving to external folder, e.g., after adding/moving items to indexed groups, tries to retain the original filenames of the documents.
  • Groups created by File > Import > Notes from Evernotenow retain the creation or modification date of the imported notes. Note: This command only works with Evernote’s “legacy version” as Evernote 10 no longer supports AppleScript.
  • Animated GIFs now animate when displayed. However, they can no longer be modified.
