What's New in Version 2.8.4

This release simplifies moving files into the database and trashing the originals in one go. It also improves smart groups, adds support for more file types, and retains tags when splitting documents. In addition, the Activity panel informs about the progress with more details, DEVONthink Personal handles PDF annotations spanning more than one line smarter, and it's much easier to create templates from folders of files.

The update also improves the overall performance and reliability and addresses a number of issues and glitches. It is recommended for all users.


- Adds the ability to import files and folders from the Finder into the database and move the originals to the trash by holding the ⌘Command key while dragging.
