Is it possible to add a link on a wiki page (page A) to an attachment from another page (page B)?

I've found a workaround (unless someone can tell me a better way) ...

If I go to the attachment link and right click to find the url, I can copy it and use it as a weblink on the other page. This effectively allows me to link to an attachment on another page.

That's what I've been doing. Not great but it works.

The Link Search tab allows use to search for and add attachments from other pages.

Link to an attachment on another page

Choose Link > Search and enter part of the attachment name.

Type [ and enter part of the attachment file name then select the attachment from the list
(you can hover over each suggestion to see which space the page is from).

With Confluence 4 you've still got the option to insert raw wiki markup when editing a page. Hence the "old" approach for linking to an attachment on another page should work just fine. https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONF35/Linking+to+Attachments If you're using a version of Confluence prior to 4 then that link will give you the perfect solution. Hard-coding a URL is not so nice...

This issue https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-6594 id rather old - as I suggest in the issue comment, smart autoconvert of pasted URL would be handy.
