Inserting File as Link Edited

I am using Confluence Cloud and I cannot figure out how to insert an attachment/file as a link instead of a thumbnail. I do not have the options shown in the below link in the knowledgebase articles to make the file a link instead of a thumbnail.

I have only the Files & Images button to insert and there are no options to make it a link.Confluence File and Images.png

Hi mistylilly and welcome,

 

Once you have added the desired filed using 'Files & images' icon as a thumbnail.
If you click on the thumbnail a button should allow you to conver as a link.

See the example below:

Does it work for you?

No, I don't have that same upload box.  Mine looks like the below:

But regardless the upload box, once the file is attached to the page as a thumbnail a button should allow you to conver as a link as shown in the GIF is this option available for you?

Unfortunately it doesn't give me that option, or any options. It turns blue when I click on it and there are no other options. Nothing happens when I click the thumbnail.
