Is there a way to use linked documents in the Mac version? If not, will it be coming with the version 8 release?
Also, is it possible to use an external library on Mac? There seems to be some documentation indicating that you can on the site, but the relevant menu options are not there in the current version. I hope that this is on the roadmap because storing large amounts of data in the ~/Library folder on Mac OS means that your system drive must have enough space to hold everything. Personally, I don't like to see ANY programs store user data in ~/Library without a way to change it for this reason.
Finally, when you do use linked documents, how does it affect Atlas.ti when the linked document changes. For example, I'd like to create a library containing all my journal article PDFs as linked documents from their relevant location in my Zotero library. What will happen if I open that document in Acrobat and add annotations and then open it back up in Atlas.ti. Alternatively, I could point Zotero at the managed version in the Atlas.ti library; what potential issues would that bring up?
