I’ve got an external drive attached to my desktop with my PDF library stored in folders as files. This drive is shared using Apple File Sharing. I wan’t to hook to them in Obsidian (and other places) which I use on 4 devices (desktop, laptop, iPhone and iPad). Now I also have DevonThink where I could put the PDFs but the way that DevonThink syncs is that it moves entire libraries to the devices you are synching with, so I use DevonThink for focused work while the PDF library is used less frequently.
So, if I want to use Hook to link those files on that external drive to other project files is it better for me to just put them in DevonThink or can I keep good links across at least my laptop and desktop? I’m not so concerned about them working on the iPad and iPhone but thought I should mention them in case there is some golden solution that marries them all.
So far: I’ve put my (synched) obsidian vault in the same path on both computers.
The question: Is this even possible? Am I going about it the wrong way? I’ve been at it for a year but it’s become more important recently so I’m braving the forum for answers. I’ve looked here but haven’t found anything yet.
Thanks so much.
I apologise if this is unclear and will edit to provide clarity if needed.
