So if there is a serious hickup in the synchronization you might end up with several thousand freshly written words just being gone, forever. A pdf you downloaded to DT can be downloaded again, but that new text has to be written again, from scratch.
Scrivener is primarily not a database app.
Yes. I hesitate to say that people *don't* write long works in DevonThink. It's theoretically possible, and there are users in the DT forums who talk about assembling long and detailed notes that could certainly morph into technical papers, if not books. But just as Scrivener is *not* primarily a database, DevonThink is *not* primarily a writing tool.
