Questions about Image and File Handling
Hello hendrik and others,
I recently found this app and felt in love due to the in-app file browser, ability to perform citation, design, etc.
Nevertheless, I have some questions regarding the handling of images:
One use-case for me is writing summaries of experiments I've done (phD student here). These should include images, typically some sort of graph or scetch. Since I eventually write a paper or use them in my thesis (both written in LateX) I currently use graphics as vector graphics, i.e. pdf, whenever possible. Including pdf's in Zettlr is possible like with all pictures:
- While this is working smoothly for PDF export, it always maximized the graphic to the whole page width. Is there a command to restrict graphics to a certain width?
- The graphic is not recognized in Zettlr, and in html there's only a small PDF viewer. Is there something I can do? Is there another vector graphic format (.eps, .svg) which is better suited?
PDF in Zettlr
PDF in HTML
More general questions:
- I believe typora has a function, where you can drop images into it and it automatically copies the file into a subdirectory with the same name as the corresponding .md file. This would be something I would find useful - is there someone else?
- For my described use case and since Zettlr can handle to much data within its opened directory (and I don't need my actual data within Zettlr anyways) I figured a separate directory for my summaries would be usefull (as root directory in Zettlr, see below). I managed to link to the corresponding file directory in my markdown document with
[Link to Directory](file:///home/[...]/Projekte/Project B). Unfortunately this seems only to work with absolut links, which is problematic if the database is synced to other computers. Does anybody knows of a way to achieve the same with relative paths?
Thanks a lot in advance for any time spent to answer and any suggestion I get.
