    How to attach a project archive file to a question?

    DeCo_1926091

      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]

          010-post.JPG

          (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.

            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.
