Using .bike files as templates in DEVONthink
(originally posted on my wiki, but thought it would be more discoverable here)
I keep several template files in DEVONthink’s Templates.noindex folder so I can easily create copies using Data->New from template…
When doing that with a Bike App template, DEVONthink would create an .html file instead. After some digging, I learned that there’s a hidden preference called “AdditionalPlainTextExtensions” and I needed to add .bike to the list.
First, I checked to make sure there were no current additional extensions (one line):
defaults read com.devon-technologies.think3 AdditionalPlainTextExtensions
Then, I added .bike (one line):
defaults write com.devon-technologies.think3 \ AdditionalPlainTextExtensions -string .bike
