Canvas: Support attachments (images, pdfs, html) located on the device but outside the vault

Add the possibility to show in Canvas local (in this device) attachments (images, pdfs) that are outside the vault.

This is a related FR for notes


Adding my interest in this feature. Use case:

I have a bunch of archived (Teleport, WebCopy…) websites going back 20 years for which I would like to use Canvas to organize and access.

Tried the Surfing plugin but seems a bit wonky still. For example, can’t actually click a link on a local page and have it open. Ctrl-click will open it in a new tab, or click plus clicking the refresh button (hotkey does not actually work).

Tried copying the entire site backup directory into my vault, and that was just a mess for various reasons, both with and without Surfing.

For now, my solution is to grab a screenshot of the page and embed with a link to the file. Then it just opens in the browser.
