Keeping files together

Instances where retrieving a single item out of EF is not enough:

  • .pdf and .skim
  • .webarchive and “convert for editing” .rtfd
  • formats that need compilation to be indexable (.tex and .pdf)

How do you handle this?

  • Restrict EF to storing sources and keep derivates somewhere else
  • Use fragile x-eaglefiler links in item notes (in both directions?)
  • Include those with identical titles whenever re-tagging/moving items
  • zip it and loose fulltext search
