I’ve been moving to a tag-based system for organizing content in DEVONthink. All of my content for each database goes into a single group called “reference.” If I want to find something, I search the hierarchical tag structure instead of diving into some arbitrary list of groups.
But I still have groups that I’d like to collapse into the reference group. So I wrote an AppleScript to perform this action. Notably, most of the action is in the
processGroup() handler which is recursive because we do not know how deep the group hierarchy goes.
Here’s the script if it’s something you can use:
-- collapse all groups into a single reference group
