How to placing a link to an uploaded file in a confluence page ?

Running on Mac, I am trying to add a link to a document that I recently uploaded (pptx). I can add a file but it remains as a thumbnail. Clicking on the thumbnail does not propse me any option to enter a label instead...yet it is documented it should work this way. 

Does anyone else has the same issue ?

Hi @Olivier Thomas

 

Welcome to the community!.

After adding the attachment save the page and then click on the attachment icon on the top of the page which takes you to the attachment page which list all the attachments in the page  from which you will be able to add the label.

Hi Vijay,

Thanks for your reply ! But how adding a label will allow me to display a file as a link in a Confluence page, rather than as a thumbnail.

Currently here is what I have :

Hi @Olivier Thomas

Sorry about my earlier answer. For adding an attachment link. First add the attachment to the page. 

After adding the attachment save the page and then click on the attachment icon on the top of the page which takes you to the attachment page which list all the attachments in the page. Right click on the Attachment which you would want to add as attachment and select copy Link address as shown in the below screenshot.

Now come back to the page and enter the text which you would like to add a link text. Highlight the text and add click on link icon on the Editor tool bar, now paste the attachment link address which you copied in the earlier step.

This will show you the text with the link to the attachment and once users click on the link the attachment will get downloaded.
