Add files instead of file links as a default
Well, I am using Omnifocus on 2 Macs (iPhone and iPAd as well). Sometimes I want to add a file that should be synced to the other Mac as well.

I realized that dragging a file to the Action item will "only" add a file path (not even a dynamic link although the link can be updated if thr file is moved later)

Now I would really LOVE to have a full file uploaded to the OmniFocus database as a DEFAULT without having to choose the file via a file dialog. Any hidden settings? Any tricks? Any plans to add this to a new version? ;-)


(back from Things & ToodleDo by the way...)

Hold down the option key as you drag the file and it will be embedded instead of linked.

Great. Thank you. Any way to get this as a default?

I don't believe so, and I expect that the impact that embedded files can have on sync time would be the reason why not.
