Can you add this in to the next version please. I'd like to link some shared dropbox files in the brain without moving them from the dropbox folder and upsetting fellow humanoids.

A keyboard accelerator to instantly toggle this behavior would be REALLY helpful.

thanks.

Jim

If I'm understanding this request it should already be possible. I assume you have move dropped files on under the UI Preferences. 
On OS X if you have this set and hold down ⌥ + ⌘ at the same time (option and command) it will change it to link rather than move. It should work the same with Windows also, holding down two modifier keys will reverse the preset behavior (so if you have link as your preference it will move, or vice versa).

I am understanding this the same as zenrain. We also have a newer tutorial on this type of linking:

Holy moly, I had totally missed these tricks - ctrl+alt & drag for windows link object.

Great video Patrick too.

Thank you guys, this is a real help.
