DEVONthink – Get Organized, Unleash Your Creativity

DEVONthink is your paperless office. It stores all your documents, helps you keep them organized, and presents you with what you need to get the job done. The app lets you focus on your work, while it remembers all the details.

With its powerful tools and custom A.I., DEVONthink enables you to collect, organize, edit and annotate documents of any kind, and have them automatically analyzed, connected and filed. And even better, everything is securely synced between your Macs, iPads and iPhones.

For example: Set up a smart rule to watch a folder for added files. With its rich set of options, the app will automatically import matching files and sort them appropriately – a huge time saver for receipts, for instance.

DEVONthink is a file and media browser, but doesn’t stop there. It’s a snippet keeper and note taker, but doesn’t stop there, either. It’s a database and organizational tool. It’s what you need it to be to get stuff done.

Yoink – Simplify and Improve Drag and Drop

Yoink offers you a “shelf” for files you drag from Finder, or app-content like images from websites. It frees your hand and mouse cursor to let you more easily and quickly navigate to the destination of your files.

Use Yoink to get even more files into DEVONthink, even easier and faster 😎

Yoink for Mac, the drag-and-drop improving utility, is now available in version 3.6.8.

What’s New?

There’s now a preference for having Yoink dynamically provide JPEG and/or PNG data for TIFF, HEIF and/or WebP image files you drag out of it.

I’ve also fixed a couple of bug fixes and made some quality-of-life improvements, like having a dedicated “Pinned Copies” sub-menu in Yoink’s contextual menu’s Clipboard History.

Where to get Yoink

Website (+ free, 30-day demo)
Mac App Store
Setapp

As always, it’s a free update for existing customers of the app.

It requires macOS Sierra 10.12 or newer and runs natively on Apple Silicon and Intel Macs.
Yoink is available in English, German, French, Italian, Simplified Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Portuguese.

Enjoy 🤗

With Yoink for Mac‘s clipboard history working again on macOS Big Sur and newer, I’ve seen, in forums and such, some questions about how the clipboard history operates and what it stores, in regards to privacy. I’ve answered those questions, but figured I’d let everyone know about it as well here on my blog, since this *should* be publicly available info:

General Notes about Yoink’s Clipboard History

  1. By default, the clipboard history feature is disabled.
    It has to be manually enabled by either clicking onto the widget in Notification Center, or in Yoink’s preferences, under Extensions.
  2. The clipboard history feature can be disabled at any time (and will clear any stored items at that point) in Yoink’s preferences, under Extensions.
  3. Individual items can be deleted in the Clipboard History browser, accessible by command-clicking onto an item in the widget, by selecting Clipboard History > Organize… in Yoink’s contextual menu, or by clicking Organize… in Yoink’s preferences under Extensions.

What the Clipboard History stores

By default, Yoink stores anything you copy or cut, be it some text from a document, an image on a website, or a file in Finder, for example. Please read “What the Clipboard History does not store” below for important exceptions to this.

The clipboard history can be configured by you to completely ignore copy/cut operations in certain apps. This can be done in Yoink’s preferences, under Extensions, by pressing “Ignored Applications: Edit…”

The clipboard history is stored locally on your Mac and does not leave your Mac, unless you do it manually.

What the Clipboard History does *not* store

Yoink completely ignores cut/copy operations from any app or process that has one of the following in its name:
Keychain, Enpass, 1Password, KeePass, LastPass, Password, Kaspersky, mSecure, AppLocker, Keeper Password, Passwort, oneSafe, Secrets, Strongbox, RememBear, Dashlane and Bitwarden.
Anything copied from an app whose name contains one of the above (case insensitive) does not get stored in Yoink’s clipboard history.

In addition to that, Yoink also ignores copied content from any app, if the resulting clipboard content contains any of the following data types (as suggested by developers, for developers, on nspasteboard.org):
com.agilebits.onepassword, org.nspasteboard.TransientType, org.nspasteboard.ConcealedType and org.nspasteboard.AutoGeneratedType.
If you copy something from an app, and that app writes, say, a string to the pasteboard, and also specifies one of the data types above, the clipboard history will not pick it up.

If you have any suggestions, possible additions, questions or feedback regarding this, please do mail me.

I’ve also updated my privacy policy to clarify all of this.

Long story short: I’m not interested in anybody’s data. I don’t do any tracking, no usage statistics, and, if my apps use your internet connection, it’s exclusively for a specific feature that it offers to you, the user.

Take care : )
