I’ve got a lot of content in my DevonThink system. As you can see here, over 805 files in the Inbox of my gfDefaultInbox alone.

I’ve been promising myself to spend some time looking into LISP, and I KNOW that I’ve been collecting content about LISP for a year or so. So, lets do a search in my database for the word “lisp”
So there a few matches there, but I want to get a look at all the content I’ve got about LISP in a single folder. I thought, hey, I can do that with a Smart Group that is defined with Meta Tags.
Here is the definition for the Smart Group to build a folder with all files that are tagged LISP or lisp
Now you can see that I’ve a got a folder, mostly PDF files, that have been tagged by me to have quality LISP content.
One small thing that I only noticed recently, when you search for a term in DevonThink and then open a file from the search window, it will take you directly to the first page of that term.
And there a keyboard shortcut to keep moving through the document for the next instance of that term.
That little trick let me review over a 50 files in less than 5 minutes.
DevonThink is the schizz people. It does things that you want do. It’s taken me two years to get this far and I just keep going deeper and deeper.
