OmniFocus 3.11.7 (v149.14.0); macOS 10.14.6.
… I have four attachments, with a “1” appended to the name of the files (before their extension).
The attachments in my user folder do not have a “1” appended.
- Are (the copies in the database) orphaned files? Should they be deleted (and if so, using Terminal, using the /private/var/… location)?
On attachments in general (quoted text is from Help):
“When you embed an attachment and sync OmniFocus, that file is copied into your OmniFocus database and is stored on the sync server so it can be pulled down wherever you need it.”
What is the relationship between embedded attachments copied to my database and the file in my user folder, i.e., do the two ‘copies’ sync to each other whenever the file changes?
If the OF database were somehow deleted, the file in my user folder would not be deleted, correct?
If the (attached, embedded) file in my user folder were deleted, would it be deleted from my OF database automatically?
(For questions 2–4, I realize everything is designed for work just fine, and I’ve not had any problems—just wondering to be sure I have all my bases covered.)
- Is there a way to ‘know’ if an attachment is embedded or linked from the Attachment List window?
