Link to file vs. Create Copy on Mac



What I did: I dragged Excel files to an Agenda note.

What happened: Agenda created a copy of the Excel file and stored it in it’s own subdirectory

What I expected: I thought it would simply create a link to the file.

Things that might be helpful to know (Agenda version, OS and model, etc): Mac OS 10.14.2; Agenda 4.0 mac app store.

Why this matters: I share this file and collaborate with others. The changes I make need to update the shared file.


If you hold the Control key while dragging in the file it will create a link instead of making a copy, just as you would like to see. Keep in mind that that link then only works on the machine where you dragged the file in for obvious reasons.


Yes, that does it. Thanks.
