mac (Archived) link to folder - problem with different user names

Idea

Hi folks, I currently user evernote on a work desktop (iMac) and my macbook air.

 

 

I want to create a  link to a dropbox folder in an evernote note.  The dropbox folder

is available on both machines.  On the iMac it looks like

 

/Users/username1/Dropbox/folder1

 

and on the macbook air it appears as

 

/Users/username2/Dropbox/folder1

 

where username 1 and username2 are DIFFERENT.    Using a link like:

 

file:///~/Dropbox/folder1 

 

does not work and I can't simply use

 

file://Users/username1/Dropbox/folder1 because

then the link would not work on the macbook air.

 

I thought the ~ would fix it but I guess ~ stands for /Users/username1 or /Users/username2 and this adds 

an extra / at the beginning.   

 

Any fixes besides changing the user names to match (not a simple procedure).

 

Best,

RH

 

I know how to create the link.

Hi rhyanes74, unfortunately we currently do not support local links or non-http links. Thanks for your input though!  :)

Hi - actually you do support non-http links, highlight text in a note and then command-k pulls up the link box, use file:///Users/username/directory/

this works great.  The problem I mentioned above can be solve by using a soft link to map /Users/directory1 to /Users/directory2 (or vice versa).

 

Best,

RH
