I have recently learned, at the cost of a sale, and maybe more than one, that when I attach a document (proposal) that I want to file in a directory tree that is useful to us, ACT! 9 automatically creates a copy of that document in its own "Attachments" file - which I wouldn't mind - but then REPLACES my just-created link to the original document with a link to the document in the Attachments folder. Thus I have two versions of the proposal. When I click on the link I get the document I expect. I may make modifications to the proposal (very common) and save them, and happily proceed thinking I am modifying the document I originally attached! And this is OK if I print out the proposal to deliver. But often times I come back from the presentation with needed modifications, make them, and then E-mail the changed proposal. The trouble is that I attach my ORIGINAL document to the E-mail, which means I am sending an unmodified version. In at least one case this angered the client enough to kill my chances. This is a stupid, stupid "feature" that you should be aware of. The only "fix" I have found is to do a "save as" after saving the linked document, so that I can save the latest version in the specific folder I always thought was holding my linked document. Why can't ACT! let me attach a document and leave that the hot-link? I don't care if it wants to make a copy - just leave my attachment path alone! Cripes.
