Linking to non-supported docs


I’m trying to use my DB to link to unsupported docs (e.g. Mellel files, Scrivener packages etc). The help file tells me that I just have to drag them into the database as usual and, since they’re unsuppported, they’ll form links rather than being imported and indexed. Unfortunately nothing happens.

The same occurs if I try to force a ‘shortcut’ but holding Cmd + Opt. No dice.

Is this a bug?

To either Import (copy into the database) or Index (create a blank document with a Path to the external file) “unknown” file types, it’s first necessary to check the option for Unknown file types in Preferences > Import - Files.

Thanks, Bill. That’s it.

Much indebted.
