I coded a little script for AutoHotkey that sets a link to a file selected in explorer in the notes of a selected thought. How to is written in the script.

You can add a link to every file on your HD to notes easily with that.

Best Regards

Copy the follwing code in a text-file and change the extension to .ahk, then open it with autohotkey:

; *** Add link to files in Notes of TheBrain. ***
; How to: Open this file in AutoHotkey.(http://www.autohotkey.com/)
; Select a thought in your brain where you want to put the link.
; You may set the cursor to the desired position in notes.
; Select a file in explorer. Press Ctrl+R. There you are :-)

Nice script. Sadly for me, I predominantly use Mac OS so AHK not a great option for me. Some of the other integration tricks I have come across elsewhere are also Windows only. Sigh. 

But nice touch, nonetheless. Appreciated.
