Adding file attachments to an article

Updated Sep 11, 2018

In ScreenSteps a file can be attached to an article as part of the main content body. Just select File Attachment from the content insertion menu.

The max size for a file attachment is 20MB.

File URLS: It is important to understand that ScreenSteps does not function as a file sharing service. When you attach a file to an article, ScreenSteps will maintain the link to those files, handling viewing permissions automatically. You should never copy the link to those files to insert into other articles or into other web pages outside of ScreenSteps.

If you need to host files for sharing then we suggest that you use a third party service such as Dropbox, Box, or Google Drive.

As long as you use the method described below to attach files, your file attachments will work just fine with your articles, but if you copy the links to those files and insert them in other places, those links will most likely break eventually.
