I’m currently in school and I take my reading notes in markdown. I later run Pandoc on my collection of markdown notes to create a single PDF of my notes. I often will make notes about .PDF or .docx documents. I’ve included a link to the file pathname on my system (ie [Document Title](<file://path_name/document.pdf>). It seems that the link will work, but when I click on the link in PDFPenPro I get a system message that says that PDFpenPro doesn’t have permission to open the document (using the same technique I can easily link to webpages without the same issue).
I have tried to find a way to give PDFpenPro permission to access files on my machine in the system preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > “Files and Folders” but the “+” is greyed out and I can’t add PDFpenPro to my list of applications to grant permissions.
Does anyone know any way to grant PDFpenPro the permission access system file links?
