How to insert attachments in Bear notes

You can attach any kind of file to a Bear note. Each file will be displayed in a small box reporting the name, modification date, and a representing icon.


You can add a file to a note by dragging and dropping it into the Editor. You can achieve the same result by selecting FormatInsert File in the menu bar, or the corresponding element in the Style Pane.

Pro tip: Click an attachment in a note, then press the Space Bar to Quick Look its contents. As long as macOS supports Quick Look for that file type, you’ll get a preview of its contents without the need to open the file’s corresponding app.


You can attach pictures and files to Bear notes by tapping either the camera icon or the attachments icon in Bear’s keyboard bar.
