Erm I thought we could already do this??

Local files can be linked from CN notes using the "file:///" protocol prefix; should there be any spaces inside the path string, replace each of them with "%20" (without quotes; some other contentious characters like quotes and ampersand will need to be replaced, too).

Example:
Code:
file:///c:\Documents%20and%20Settings\USER\Desktop\My.txt


Or are you seeking to tidy this method up?
No trees were killed in the creation of this message. However, many electrons were terribly inconvenienced.

Yes, first the automatic URL en/decoding so no "%20"'s are needed anymore, then something like adding a "..." (browse for folder/file) button next to the arrow button with the ability to pick the file.
Also there should be a possibility to specify multiple links.
