Looking for a Mac-based document management system that is not source-code oriented. Google-fu fails.
I currently use Interwoven Desksite for Windows at work. This is a server-based document management system that permits the following:
1. Organizing documents by project
2. Creating new files within the program; checkin/checkout on a per-file basis.
3. Creating a new version of an existing document and retaining previous iterations of the document (for example, save a document forwarded by opposing counsel as version 1, then make my edits to version 2, save opposing counsel's response to my edits as version 3, etc.)
4. Very simple drag and drop import, version control, etc.
5. Comprehensive metadata
Desksite is exceptionally powerful, sufficient for a document count well into 8 figures. I don't need anything remotely that powerful, and will be more than satisfied with single user or small workgroup software. I also need something that provides features 1-5 above.
Devonthink and similar apps don't seem to have the workflow I'm looking for, especially regarding versioning. Versions
is an excellent SVN client, but the workflow is targeted almost entirely at software developers (in particular, Versions doesn't support per-file checkout and only permits checking out a complete folder, which may not be necessary; Versions' import workflow is also weird and doesn't accept drag and drop). I also don't know whether SVN plays nice with Word documents and other binary files.
So ... are there any Mac-based lawyers or other non-programmer professionals out there who are using a satisfactory versioning document management system in their work?
