    It would be soooo handy to be able to right-click on an image or an attached file in TF, and invoke a context-menu item: “Reveal in Finder.” I know I can track down the file manually, but it’s just a faster, smoother workflow.

    Thanks for your great work.

    For an image there’s a download button you can click on to save the file out. The problem with showing the file in the Finder is that it is actually stored in the database as a .blob file. That .blob file may actually be encrypted if you’ve encrypted your database. So there would be no way for you to even view the contents of the .blob file without exporting it from the app.

    The same goes for regular file attachments. When you click the “Show in finder” button for an attachment, it just asks you to save it somewhere because it’s reading that blob file (as mentioned above, possibly encrypted) and then saving it to where you’ve asked it to save.
