I do a fair amount of blogging, and it is great in my blogs to be able to link to images on the Net. I also have PDF files on my harddrive, and from a PDF I can establish links to other PDFs or to URLs on the web. I miss that ability sorely in User Tools, either those that I have licensed or to those that I have created from my own commentaries. It would be nice if I could add a link to an outside (web or otherwise) source as notes to update my copy of a licensed Bible dictionary article.


I don't *think* that David Lang has given us a way to do this already in Accordance. If he has and I have overlooked it, please forgive my oversight. But I would *love* it, if I could annotate my own copies of licensed user tools the way I can annotate my physical books in my library with notes.

Sorry, we have no plans to implement such links.

Harry,
You may have missed this topic:
Linking to other resources

Some of us are using this format:

file:///Users/MyUsername/Documents/myFile.txt

as a solution within User Tools.
