    Posted: 29 Jan 10 at 8:32AM
I have recently started adding attachments to my PDFs (usually it's other PDFs and it's a neat way to store them rather than adding on the bottom as additional pages).  Since there's a beta in development, I thought I'd throw something in (it might not get any airtime, but at least it's not yet too late!)

My suggestions are for making some improvements when selecting files to add as Attachments, so that
  • when the "Attach Files" dialogue opens, it uses a sensible location.  Currently it seems to default to C:\ which isn't much help; how about the documents folder?
  • if adding more than one file as an attachment either remember the location of the first added file or allow two (or more) files to be selected at the same time (currently selecting two pdfs at the same time doesn't seem to work: or it lists the two files in the Attachments box, but with no size in brackets)
  • maybe permit drag-and-drop to add Attachments?

Hope this isn't already covered in the beta or elsewhere & this is the right place for these thoughts.

Hi,

   Excellent suggestion, thank you. I have added that to my "todo" list. The drag'n'drop is indeed possible too - although I may need to change how the "list" displays files to show all files, not just PDF files.

   Cheers!
