Apple Freeform app as a digital desktop/workbench?
With macOS Ventura 13.1 released a week ago, and iOS/iPadOS 16.1, Apple released their "Freeform" app.
It's an infinite (AFAIK) canvas application with some drawing/annotation features common on iPads, some shape and vector features common in Pages/Keynote, live collaboration (their big selling point), images and file attachments.

This is focusing about collaboration and multi-device usage:
I was interested in checking out how well the file stuff performs.
Can this be a digital desktop for writing projects? Or the current project workbench?
Anyone here using that?
My own experience
I don't think it'll work for me: I can drag and drop Markdown files onto the canvas, but only as embedded copies. This makes sense for sharing/collaboration. But I'd personally want a digital desktop that merely links to my files so I can continue to edit them in The Archive. (Insert sad panda picture here)
