Tools Menu
Insert Link to File or Folder

If you would like to refer to one or more files in an iData record, you can create a clickable link to that file. This can be useful for managing project that use numerous files from different applications.

 Clicking the Insert link to a file toolbar icon (or typing control-command-option-L) will open a window in which you can select a file. The name of the selected file will be inserted at the location of the insertion point as a blue underlined link to that file.

Clicking on the link will launch the file just as double-clicking its icon would do in the Finder. (If you move, rename, or delete the file, clicking its link will bring up an alert informing you that the file cannot be found.)

To see a practical example of such a file link, click here.
