The PDF is saved in DT3 as a store of record and that’s where I read and annotate it. I would prefer the PDF was not included, but I don’t think that’s possible. I do like that the first page shows, though, which is why I don’t just create a note and link it. Here’s the use case today, but there are many such cases in my work:
I’m writing a paper about a qualitative research study and am listing what I will do to establish trustworthiness. This includes several concepts such as thick descriptions and member checking and peer auditing. I have created a map of trustworthiness and it links to notes for each of the phrases above. I would like to have those notes drill down into a map of papers. So that clicking on thick description would show me a bunch of papers that directly mention and support it. In the TB notes for each paper, I’ll list direct quotes.
I can do this with notes for sure, and from some perspectives that would be best (drag the reference from Bookends, for example). But where I am right now, I want the visual potential of a bunch of papers scattered across a map to jog my memory and help the literature stand out in my mind.
