  1. Will Evernote ever note the fact that it cannot link to a Windows file or folder by simply dragging the file or folder into a note? This is a blaring shortcoming in an otherwise incredibly useful tool. I realize these links will not work if you open the note on a different platform. But if we're willing to accept that caveat then why not give us this very useful functionality. Here's how I would envision it working. Drag a file or folder into a note, upon dropping it we get a pop-up menu that says "Copy" or "Hyperlink". If we choose Copy then do the normal thing, if we choose Hyperlink then give us a hyperlink like C:\Myfolder\MyFile Please do not respond to this message unless you are an Evernote employee. No offense, but the well intended suggestions get off-topic very quickly.
  2. Are you looking for a link to a file not saved in the Evernote Database? I'm not sure why it would do that, since that would be outside its file structure. I'm able to drag various files into the EN window. Not sure if you can drag in a folder, but I don't think I've ever tried. I find that I save more files into EN and skip the usual folder structure of the computer itself. Windows search capability has been slower than molasses since Win7, at least in my networked environment. For many good reasons, we must maintain our Windows file/folder structure. Evernote should link to outside files and folders just like it can link to an URL. It is possible, but cumbersome - you create a shortcut to the folder or file in Windows, then drag the shortcut into Evernote. We should be able to drag a file or folder directly into Evernote and get the option to copy or link it upon dropping. If we link it, we should get a link in blue just like when we drag&drop an URL. As it is, we get a box with file name, date and time that takes up three times the room it needs to.
