[Posted this on the Devontechnologies Forum some time ago, but never really got a solution. Since @MacSparky released his Field Guide, thought I’d put it up for discussion here (with a couple of minor modifications).]
I’ve been looking for a way to create a TOC in DEVONthink, but I have had no luck. By TOC, I wasn’t thinking, at least initially, of an Obsidian-style TOC. I just wanted a list of resources I have stored in DEVONthink that I could print out for giving to colleagues, e.g., “Here’s a list of stuff I have. Anything interesting?”
I have many folders and sub-folders in my databases. It is not practical to dig down to the file level in each folder to be able to copy and paste the titles into a text document. I couldn’t see how DEVONthink could accomplish this. Then I thought, “What about Obsidian?” If Obsidian could scan the database and return the title and DEVONthink link, it could create a document that could do this in Obsidian (or even in a mind map app if it could export an OPML). I couldn’t find a plugin in Obsidian that could do this.
The questions I have: 1) Is there currently a way to do this? 2) If not, how difficult would it be to create a plug-in for Obsidian or a DEVONthink automation to do it? I know there are plug-ins that interface with DEVONthink, so that doesn’t seem to be a problem in itself. (Caveat: I know nothing about creating plug-ins and would not even attempt it myself!).
