Specifies the OS path to the object (in POSIX form).

The object can be either a file or a folder. Only one file may be attached per note; to attach several files drop a folder containing the desired files. This linked asset may also be an OS alias to a file or folder.

Adding a new note to $File replaces the existing reference. $File can also be set by dropping a file on the File button of a text window's sidebar.

When opened via the sidebar, $File's contents is passed to Finder which opens a finder window (for folders) or opens the file according to the files OS-associated application.
