how to attach text documents? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

just got omnioutliner and got into a problem:

I need to have an outline which contains text documents from my hard disk.

so I would drag them into a field, but when editing with text edit from within my outline, the text of the document on my hard disk is not changed. it seems some copy is made, but revealing it in the finder gives the original document.
so how should this be done?

I do this in Circus Ponies Notebook (where one easily can add documents by reference) all the time and it is very useful (I e.g. use this for having those text docs in sync with my iPhone), but would need this working in outliner too. advice appreciated.
OmniOutliner allows you to have your choice of a link to an external file, or embedding the file in the document. Bring up Help->OmniOutliner Help and search for "Embedding files" for the details on how and why.
