Attaching a File

Files can be attached directly to a PDF Document. When files are attached directly to a PDF document they are embedded within the PDF file directly so that when the PDF is sent to another user they can still have access to the file. Once a file is attached the file will be displayed in the Attachments Pane on the left of the Xodo PDF Studio window.

Note: Attaching a file does increase the size of the PDF. If size is a concern try using a Link instead that will open the file from another location.

Using the File Attachment Tool

  1. Select the Attach File tool by clicking the in the Comment Tab on the toolbar or using the shortcut key Ctrl + Shift + F (⌘ + Shift + F on Mac)
  2. A file chooser dialog will be displayed where you can navigate and select the file you wish to attach.
  3. Once complete, click Open to attach the file

Note: You can also drag and drop files onto the attachments tab to attach them as an embedded file.

Using Paste Shortcut Keys

Any file or document currently on the clipboard for your OS can also be attached to the document by just using the Paste shortcut keys with the Xodo PDF Studio frame active.

Once pasted the file attachment can be viewed in the Attachments Pane.
