allow editable version of attachments

So for example, I'd like to attach a spreadsheet to a note, then clink on that attachment, open it in, make edits, then save those back to the attachment of the note.

Right now it seems like when I open an attachment in a different app, the different app says "read only".

    Hi Elliott,

    I guess this is a problem of shoebox apps like Bear and MacOS sandboxing, I'll double check if something is possible.

    Thanks for looking in to it. I know apps like Curio do this, but they aren't in the app store. It does seem like since a lot of apps are moving back in to the app store, there might be some recent change that's allowing more flexibility?

    I'm afraid not, but I'll double check on Mojave.
