Hello folks !
Has anyone here some experience with storing .scriv bundles within DevonThink 2 ?
I just tried with a couple .scriv and it seems to work with no problem (DT2 imports them all right and even shows the titles of the different drafts present in the document - but not the research documents).
I’m just worried about possible troubles along the road that could corrupt the .scriv bundles if I decide to store them only in DT2 (ie : no copies in a plain old folder on my disk).
(But I of course do backup DT2’s database though )
I’m not totally sure of the workflow I’ll adopt, but I feel DT2 could really help me there (I’ve outgrown Yojimbo even though I still really like its simplicity compared to DT2).
I sure could phase out Scrivener as DT2 allows decent writing and my new job won’t involve print publishing (ie : hand out Word docs) anymore, only web (ie : copy-paste in a web form).
But I feel Scrivener is much more comfortable to write with for larger projects, and much better designed to organize my writing. After six month using it i really feel at home writing in Scrivener.
Anyway, I’ll probably post later on about the workflow, but for now the question at hand is to know if DT2 can safely hold .scriv bundles and allow me to get them back out at anytime (and, of course, if DT2’s sorting and search functionnalities would also work with the documents present inside the .scriv bundle)
(EDIT : DT2’s database is a bundle, it’s possible to dive in and find the .scriv bundle itself, nicely sorted in a “scriv” directory created by DT2 a import. That’s a good news)
