I want to second the inline support for PDF and have the first page show up as if it were an image file. Mail.app does this: if it’s a one-page PDF it shows the full page inline, if it’s a multi-page PDF, it shows a generic icon. I’d be happy with this type of solution.
In fact, if I could drag a page from an open PDF in Preview (from the thumbnail column) directly into Bear to insert just that page into the my note and have it remain visible, that would be the best of all worlds. (Currently If you drag it from Preview to the desktop, a single page PDF file is created, so this doesn’t seem difficult to implement in Bear.)
I take notes of presentations, and this would allow me to insert the current stack page into my notes.
Bonus if you can make the PDF content searchable!
Thank you for the great product and ongoing improvement!
