Attaching files

GoldenSection Notes allows users to attach external files (.doc, .xls, .jpg, .mp3, .exe, etc.) to Notes. Furthermore, files attached to a password-protected document are also protected using the same password.

To attach a file, select Record - Attached Files - Attach File, or click the button on the toolbar. In the dialog box that appears, select a file to be attached and click the Open button. The selected file will be added to the comment's body of the current record.

Example of a record that contains attached documents:

1. Icon that denotes the presence of attached files for the record
2. Panel that contains files attached to the current record

Attaching files via Drag & Drop

You can attach files to the body of a comment via Drag & Drop from Explorer or Windows Desktop. To do this, drag a desired file to the GoldenSection Notes window. Depending on the place within the program window where you drag your file to, the following activities are performed:
  • If you drag a file to the list of records, it will be added to the record over which the cursor is positioned at the moment.
  • If you drag a file to the comment/note body area, a link to the selected file will be added to the body of this comment/note. While dragging, press and hold the Alt button to attach the file itself.
  • If you drag a file to the panel of attached files of the current record, the file will be added to this record and displayed on this panel.

Working with attached files

You can open, save, or delete attached files. To do this, right-click an attached file. A pop-up menu will appear on the screen:

Attach File - allows to attach additional files to the current record.
Open - opens the current file. Note that if you edit an attached file (for example, an MS Word file) and save changes, the modified data will not be added to GoldenSection Notes. If you want to edit an attached file, first of all, save it to the disk. Then, open it for editing and, when done, attach back to the record.
Save... - displays a dialog box for saving an attached file to the disk.
Save All Attached Files - saves all attached files to the specified folder.
Delete - deletes the selected file from the record.
View - allows you to switch the view mode for attached files in the panel.

If you drag a file from the panel of attached files to a note or comment, the corresponding link to this file will be added. If you drag a graphics file (for example, .jpg), the graphics itself will be inserted in the note body. If you drag a text file (txt), its contents will be added to the body of your note.
