Yes, that's possible. To link any file (a PDF, URL, movie, etc.) to an entry, drag the file over the details view of the entry in Bookpedia. (The details view is the one below the list or grid view, at the bottom of the main window.) A link will automatically be created to the file and depending on the details view template you have selected you can then click on that link in the view to open the file.
You can choose in the Preferences/General whether you want your files to open inside Bookpedia or with an external browser.

If you have more PDFs on your computer that you haven't catalogued in Bookpedia yet you can also just drag those files over the Bookpedia icon to import them as entries with the link automatically attached. The program will try to extract as much information from the file as possible to create the entry.

Nora,

Sorry about the late reply, I've been away a few days. Thank you for that info.
