Re: question about attachments folder(?)


This would be very usefull for me too, in an other usecase, wich I describe

Indeed I use dropbox to sync my notes, this give me little space for my data
(only 2GB for a non-premium account).
In order to avoid using too much space, I let the files I refer to in a
seperate folder, then I add a link to them instead of attaching them (which
avoid the copy of the file in the file tree ). So I keep a "attached file
folder" where I copy all my interesting file with my notes linking to this
folder. This way I use little space in my dropbox account while keeping my
file tree consistent if I copy note & files on an other file system.

It would be great if I didn't have to think about to copy first and then
link. An option could make the use of an "attach folder" transparent.  The
path for the "attach folder" should be relative (or user defined) in order
not to break link consistency.
