Manage Document Attachments
You will see a list of files currently attached to the document.
To update an attachment
To update the attached file, or any of the information related to it, click the Update link.
sWord will move to the next screen and you may update any of the following information:
It is not necessary to select a new file in order to update any of the other information. However, if you want to change the file attached, there are two ways of going about this:
Load a file from your computer
To attach a file which you have on your computer, press the Browse button. You will then be able to use your computer's browse window to locate the file to upload.
Please make sure your attachments to not have obscene or offensive names when you upload them, as this information will be visible to other users. You may need to rename files before uploading them.
Choose a file from the Library
To attach a file contained in a site library, click the Load from library link. You will then be able to use the Library Manager to locate the file to attach.
Type in the title you would like to give to the attachment. The title must be at least once character long, and may not be omitted.
List the attachment in the page footer option
Check the List the attachment in the page footer checkbox if you'd like the attachment to be listed at the bottom of the page.
For each attachment in the page footer, sWord will list the following information:
- The title as you provided it. This will be clickable and linked to the attachment.
- The original file name, as it was named on your computer before uploading it. Please make sure your attachments to not have obscene or offensive names when you upload them, as this information will be visible to other users. You may need to rename files before uploading them.
- The file size.
- The description as provided by you.
Look at the example at the bottom of this page to see how the attachment is viewed in a standard site setup. This may vary depending on the style of the site.
Type in a short description of the attachment. This information will be viewed with attachments listed in the page footer.
Click the Continue button when you have finished.
Only click the Continue button once, then wait for sWord to park the Satellite Window and refresh your main browser window.
To remove an attachment
To remove an attachment, simply click the remove link. sWord will then park the Satellite Window and update your main browser window.
When you have finished, simply press the close button and sWord will park the Satellite Window.
