I am trying to attach a copy of my project to a discussion question.  I created a bundle and it was saved.  Then I created a discussion question and clicked on the attach icon at the lower right of the message editor.  I then selected the file (or is it a zipped folder?) but there seemed to be nothing I could do to get it accepted as an attachment to the question.

Maybe I'm too stupid to operate a question box!

I'd be grateful for some help.

Thanks,

Dennis

Hi,

Reading your question, I think that you have done most the steps.

But to make it sure, I did the following steps to create a discussion with an attachment.

(1) Created a project

(2) To make the size of attachment, clean the project

Select the project from the Workspace Explorer, right-click the project and select "Clean <project>"

or

Menu: Build > Clean <project>

(3) Create archive file of the project

From the Workspace Explorer, right-click the project then select "Archive Workspace/Project..."

or

After selecting the project in the Workspace Explorer, Menu: Project > Archive Workspace/Project...

(4) Workspace/Project Archive dialog appears, check "Compress Archive" and "Minimal"

(I think that they are defaults)

Then select [Archive]

(5) Summary Dialog appears, select [OK]

(6) The folder containing the archive file opened.

Note the path or keep the folder opened for later reference.

(7) Start (create) a discussion in the forum of your choice.

(8) To create a discussion, enter "Title", check "Mark this discussion as a question", if it is so.

Then enter the content of the discussion (or question)

Then select "Attache" at the right bottom.

(9) A file select dialog shows up.

Select the archive file, you created at the step (6) then select [Open] (if in Japanese [開く(O)])

(10) Now the archive is attached

(11) Then post the discussion using the left bottom button [Post]

(12) A discussion (question) with an attachment was created.

Hope this can be a hint for you 😉

Hi,

Some additional tips.

During the discussion, the default reply window does not have "Attach" button.

020-Reply.JPG

Then select "Use advanced editor" in the top right corner

021-use-advanced-editor.JPG

The "Advanced" Editor has "Attach" in the bottom right corner.

In case you want to attache a file to the original post of yours, although there is no "Edit" button in the bottom left,

there is "Edit" in the right side of the message.
