O, wow. It seems that I found a very interesting workaround for Anytype read-only files limitation. I think it may be usefull to some, as multiple people asked about ability to edit files stored/linked to Anytype.
I wanted to be able to insert .docx files into Anytype in a way that allows for editing them. I want to have a clear list of “all the document I’m working on right now”. The problem was - if you upload a file into Anytype, it becomes read-only. If I wanted to work on a file stored on Anytype, I would have to upload it every time, I make any changes.
BUT you can create a link to a file path (file:///) and as long as the file path doesn’t changes, the link keeps working. So I can create a local file, place it somewhere I intent it to stay and then create a link on Anytype. Then I can access the file directly from Anytype, without having to use windows explorer to find the file.
It works only on single device, but still, until we get a option to edit stored files (or to create links to local files directly from Anytype) this workaround opens new ways for local file management.
First, I tried to use .lnk files but after couple of tries, I managed to make file path links work as well. .lnk files still seem to be an only option if file path uses non-english symbols.
