Hi all

After my first week or so with org im finally starting to switch to it full
time. Im also in the process of migrating all my notebooks from all other
apps. previous note apps ive used stored attachments/images inside the
notes/databases. this made me wonder how i should approach this with org.

I take alot of screenshots and attach alot of PDF's/ scrips to my notes. I
would love to hear back from the community on how people organize these "
realted" org files. do they go to separate folder per org note file, IE
having a research2000.org file and then a research2000 folder for all
related files? is it better to just dump all files into one big repository
for ALL org notes? are there better solution?

thanks alot in advance

z.

I have a few different ways I organize my files:
1) I work a lot of tickets in specific source-code directories.  Each
directory has a .capture.org file in it w/capture templates for TODOs and
NOTES. These typically get archived with the ticket is finished
2) I also use emacs/org on my tablet for note-taking in class.  These org
files all go in a subdir off my Dropbox directory:  ~/Dropbox/ClassNotes
 with a classname-date naming scheme
3) I also have a org directory off my home director (~/org) that holds all
my more general org files such as more general TODO & NOTES, my daily work
log file, and so forth.
But really, the big thing is that whatever order you use, that it work for
you.  Plus, it can always be changed later if it doesn't work quite right,
or needs expanded.

Take a look at http://orgmode.org/org.html#Attachments - it's «the
Org-mode way» of attaching files to a node.


However, I generally use a different kind of approach. Files like
screenshots I name similar to «2013-01-14T10.01 Screenshot - calfw week
view sketch.png», thus including an ISO 8601 date/time-stamp.

With Memacs [1] I do use a module that generates an Org-mode index
of all files that start with such a timestamp [2]. This way, I can
refer to any file: [[tsfile:2013-01-14T10.01 Screenshot...]]

This custom link (tsfile) takes me to the corresponding
Org-mode/Memacs buffer which has the link to the file. So, it's an
indirect link but this way, I do not care in which directory the
(unique) file is located. This is handy especially when the folder
is not the same on different machines you are using. Or when you
like to move files (after finishing a project or similar).
