How can I move an attachment into a different space?

I would like to move a page attachment from one space into another (personal) space. When I assign the new page title in the attachment properties I get an error message:

You cannot move the attachment to a page that does not exist.

When I try to use "~<user>/<page title>" a similar error message is shown.

What is the syntax to move an attachment into a different space?

Hi,

Does the page in question exist already? If it does, can you please try and rebuild indexes from scratch and see if that helps? https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFKB/Rebuild+the+Content+Indices+from+Scratch

The related documentation can be found here, but I believe you are aware of it: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Moving+an+Attachment

Kind regards,

Peter

The page exists and already has other attachments. I also can create a link to the page using "[<page title>]" on the page where the attachment currently is linked to, so I don't think it is an index issue.

Thanks for the link to the latest Confluence page. I just noticed that the latest documentation includes a hint about moving attachments into different spaces. The correct syntax for personal spaces is: "~<user>:<page title>".
