Add a link to a single attachment: how?

In older versions of Confluence it was easy to add just one attachment as a link into the page. You could just choose a file from all attachments of the page and it as easily added into the text.

Now I can't find anything like this in the Cloud versions. Just Attachments micro that gives me a list of all attachments of the page. But I don't want a list. I need a simple link that readers can click and download/view the attached file.

Is there any way?

@Alexey Gerasimovich There is two ways to do this. 

  1. If you have not uploaded the file yet you can just drag it onto the page and it will create the thumbnail link for you on the page to the single document.  
  2. You can select view of the file on the page and then copy and paste the URL from the bowser in as your link.  

Neither is great but they are workarounds.  

Thank you, Brank! This is the same workaround I use. But it is interesting if there is some other more convenient way. Because I am 100% sure it was

I agree. Is there a macro or wiki mark up to show an existing attachment as a link?
