Hallo everyone,

How to create a button through which I can open an attachment?
I found this option in some other pdf editors but in the pdf xchange editor, I didn't. Thank you in advance!

Hello,

I suppose you mean that an "attachment" is an embedded file in your PDF-document.

To embed, and later open an attachment in a PDF via PDF-XChange Editor by means of a button, you can best use the "File Attachment Tool" (Attach File - paper clip) that is available in the toolbar (in the Classic Toolbars user interface) or in the Comment-ribbon (in the Ribbon UI).

Just click the paper clip icon, click at the place on the page where you like the button to be, select the file to embed, and click Open.

In case you like, you can replace the Paperclip symbol by a Graph, Attachment or Tag symbol, via the Properties pane (View > (Other) Panes > Properties pane).

Regards.
