Is there a way to move/copy an attached file from one card to another in Trello?
It is of course possible to download the attachment and then re-upload it again to the other card, but that is very tedious to do especially on a phone.
The docs say nothing about this. An answer on Stack Exchange said "no" but that was from 2012, so maybe this feature has been added since then(?).
When you create a new checklist you can select to copy from an existing one. Attachments could have a similar feature.
I tried these instructions on a pdf scan and was unsuccessful. I did manage (on a desktop) to move a file by following these steps:
Hi Greger, and welcome to Community!
You can copy an attached file from one card to another by opening up both the origin card and the destination card in separate windows side-by-side. Then you go into the attachment by clicking the open link:
Finally drag and drop that attachment into the destination card.
Voila, you will have copied it!
Hope this helps,
thats really a sad restriction in the Trello App. When sharing an image to trello, it cannot be attatched to a specific card but only to a new card. AND i also cannot move it to another card.
Would be more than nice to have a move attatchment feature in the app.

I found that transferring the attachment like you showed just creates a link from one card to another. I wanted to get rid of the other card completely once the attachment was transferred to the new card but now I either have to keep the old card or download the attachment and reload it and then delete the old card. It would be so great if Trello could focus on adding a move attachment feature.
Thanks for your help! Cindy
