SEnding an attachment in email through project automation

I have a proforma form attached to the Jira issue and I'm trying to send it through project automation addon in an email.   You can manually export the PDF, but I can't seem to get it send in email action in project automation.

I've tried using smart values, etc.  Researched the community and doesn't look like anyone has found a solution.

Not sure why the Project Automation addon has "delete attachments" action, but not an add attachments action for Send email action.

Any suggestions?
