Attachment visibility

Post by labcottage » Wed Oct 09, 2019 9:10 am

Hi, is it possible to easily tell 'at a glance' that a pdf document has an attachment, or do I need to click on the 'Attachment' button to see if a document has been attached?

Many thanks,

Hello labcottage,

Unfortunately, for the moment the answer is no.

You have to open the Attachments Pane in order to see if there is an attachment in the file.

Regards.

It's a must-have to get a hint, that "there is something" more than the visible PDF-content!

When will PDFX get such an "indicator"? A paper-clip like Adobe Reader somewhere to click on it, and - even better - a message box (warning) when opening such a PDF would be useful.

Hello Guebert,

I cannot make any promises for implementation right now, but this is something that has been discussed recently and may be considered in the future. For the moment however we have not seen enough demand for to prioritize action in this direction.

Daniel,

thanks for your reply.

Just another suggestions: If the pdf contains any attachment, the "attachment"-pane should open automatically, if it closed by default. This seems to be a concept, which does not need a lot of changes in the application, doesn't it?

Hello Guebert,
That is one of the possibilities that we have considered for this, and may be the route we eventually take. The best that I can promise right now is that the idea has not been scrapped.
