This explains most of the OOP behavior in this problem.

It sounds like you are using OmniOutliner as a file organizing tool.
Yes. And now that I understand what's going on, it's a powerful one.

The OmniOutliner help for "attach file" covers this material well.
It does. However I couldn't find it until you mentioned it, because I was looking for "link" or "linking" in help. Could a reference be added under that term?

Many thanks for clearing this up!
