saving embedded media inside rednotebook directory

Asked by Wolf Weidner on 2016-01-01

I use a synced folder to access my rednotebook on several machines. this works well as long as I don't embed any files. those are just links. Is there way to make rednotebook save them along with the entries? and if the link could be saved relative that whould mean I could acutally sncy my rednotebook

Thanks for the comment. It is planned to allow storing files inside the data folder.

You did not mention how your are linking, but if you are using Windows and Dropbox, I found this site to be very helpful:

Naturally, I use the /J option, and it is "almost" error free with rednotebook on multiple machines. I suggest you uncheck the "close to system tray" option, and you will have to manually open the default journal (General) when you switch machines.

I have not tried linking to files yet, but see that coming, also between different machines. OneNote (Microsoft) actually moves copies of the files into the notebook. This is very good because it allows you to have the version that pertains directly to the notes. The only drawback is that the notebooks can get quite large, and of course since they insist on trying to sell their servers to make their products work, most of their products (like OneNote specifically) don't actually work or are very unreliable.

With the current trend in disk prices, it would seem copies are attractive, as long as bandwidth or sneaker net using USB drives is supported when you have multiple machines to sync up. We sometimes forget that sneaker net is a viable alternative to bandwidth and backups.

Finally links to a USB drive might work regardless (perhaps solving your problem), since in most cases their location in a system can be controlled (by drive letter or mount point - or even /J linking in windows)

I second this suggestion. When I put an image/other file into a rednotebook post, it should copy to the directory where the post is. This way if I reorganize the files in my hard drive, the images will always be visible in rednotebook.

This is planned for a future version.

Can you help with this problem?
