Hi @Lionel Champalaune,

The new Confluence Cloud editor unfortunately removed the ability to link text to an attachment, you can follow the feature request on CONFCLOUD-65302. Here is a workaround:

1. Add an attachment to the page

2. Publish the page

3. Go to the page's Attachment menu


4. Go bak to Edit mode and use this link:


If you'd like to add an attachment as a thumbnail rather than as an icon, you can follow this feature request: CONFCLOUD-67512.

That's way too complex to just add a link to an attachment but that's unfortunately the only available workaround.

Hope this helps,

- Manon
