Open local file blocked?

Recommended Posts

I very recently downloaded Evernote, and shortly thereafter got hung up with organizing my notes. I want to create a link in my note to a .pdf file locally stored on my hard drive. Here is what is happening:




I repeated the test using a .docx - same result. When these links are reproduced in a word processor, the files are opened.


Conclusion: User can successfully create links to local filesystem. Evernote may not support links to external objects.


Next I created a link within Evernote to a web address. Success!


Conclusion: Linking to the local filesystem is restricted.


These results are using the download from evernote.com. Similar result using application downloaded from App Store (preview will only load pdf files following specific events, e.g. launching the file from finder, closing it, then accessing via the hyperlink within Evernote).


Has this feature been blocked? I was really excited about this software, but without this feature I will not be able to use it efficiently. Are there permissions I need to enable for Evernote so that it can launch locally stored files?


Thank you!
