Attachments macro to see item from another page: something goes wrong

Using Attachments Macro on Confluence 5.2

On the home page I want to show attachments of a children page, specifying the page name in the macro parameters page.

The problem is that some features doesn't refers to the page:

  1. The preview of the file show the message: Error rendering macro 'viewfile' : The viewfile macro is unable to locate the attachment "nameoftheattachment.pdf" on this page (this refers to the office connector plugin);
  2. Tha upload tools attach the document to the home page and not to the page specified;

My point of view suggests me that all the features of the macro mast refers to the page specified: is it a bug or I don't understand something?

the point 1 is solved in the 5.4.4 (I certified it)

the point 2: using the link browse for file works good

using drag and drop, the file is attached on the wrong page.

So actually the issue is not solved for 2.2

2 on 3 is good
