The attachments work great, I especially like the full-width images. Some things I like in particular:
Attachments aren’t searchable. I know others will disagree, but I love that the attachment content isn’t indexed. This lets me include attachments without polluting search results – I search only my notes’ content. If one day Agenda adds searching within attachments, I hope there will be a way to maintain the current behavior.
Attachments aren’t editable. Double-clicking an attachment on OS X opens a locked file. To edit it, you have to explicitly unlock it (I assume, I haven’t tried it) or create a copy. I like that I can use Agenda to archive documents without accidentally editing them. If I want to edit an attachment, I can drag it to my desktop, edit, and then replace the attachment within Agenda – or just add the attachment to maintain an archive of both versions.
Paste attachments in iOS. Most iOS applications permit a quick export via the share menu, with the share target being “Copy.” Using that, I can export from any app, and paste the attachment directly into Agenda. It’s pretty amazing really!
A few requests
- Render PDF attachments in-line like images, including full width.
- Show a media player for audio files (and video files would be cool too, though I don’t use it as much). So an MP3 / M4A would show a play button right in the note.
- Export / drag multiple attachments at once. On macOS it’s currently one-at-a-time.
My use case that would benefit is keeping a musical journal. I export a PDF of sheet music and an MP3 and add them to Agenda. Rendering PDFs would let me see a thumbnail / a decent size in full width, and a media player gives me one-click access to play a sound.
Of course today I am able to view the PDF and audio file by tapping them, so it’s already quite convenient. These suggestions would just make it that much more polished.
