This will stop working if I import the files into Devonthink as they will be moved inside a package file.
My goal is to use this action along with the ability to “copy item link” for an imported folder to do the same think.
Does anybody know if this is possible, or have any other ideas on how to solve this problem?
Why not use DEVONthink’s Tools > Create Table of Contents? Creates a document listing document names with active item links for each thing on the list. The list can be added to Excel, converted to markdown, etc.
@KVZ I tried this functionality but I’m afraid it’s not working very well for what I need.
You have to select all the documents for this option to become available. Just selecting a folder deactivates this option.
I created a smart group that retrieves the files I want, then select all files and create the “table of contents.rtf”.
However, this is saved in the same group with the files which is again inside Devonthink.
I guess I could then save it somehow to a folder on my drive so KM could read it’s contents, match with REGEX and paste into excel the way I want it.
I would also have to make sure I delete these .rtf documents after I’m done with them.
And all of this will have to be done by KM.
This is a much more complicated process from what I have now, with a lot of thinks that can go wrong.
So if that’s the only option I will leave things as they are.
