How can I attach a generic file to a question?

Hey Confluence Team,

is it possible to add other attachments than images to a question of the "Confluence Questions" Plugin?

Thanks in advance for a short hint,

Hey Lars,

Yes - you can add attachments using the Insert link button and then choosing "Attachments" or by dragging and dropping a file into the body of the question space, just as you would add an attachment to a Confluence page.



I'm having issues dragging and dropping any kind of file other than an image file.

I receive the message

I have received this error with .pptx, .docx, .xlsx and .pdf file types. 

Image files attach normally and are displayed in the Question/Answer.

Oh, ok. I think I just found it myself. By adding a link, I can chose attachments...
