Notes 8.5 wish list


One of the things I find myself doing many, many, many times a day is saving an attachment from Notes to my hard drive, and then navigating in file manager to that file to launch it locally (so when I make edits or changes as a work in progress, it's already in it's final location).  

What I really want is something like Firefox's download capabilitiy (or the Download Status Bar), so I can with a click open the file locally from the location I saved it to.  Is there no way to do this with one of those newfangled Notes 8.5 widgets or sidebars or something?  Does the location I specify to save the file from the dialog box get passed back to Notes?  Any suggestions out there?
