There are two ways to include files in articles:

  1. Adding files
  2. Attaching files

Adding Files to Articles

Adding a file to an article adds it directly to the body of the article instead of attaching it as a download.

To add a file to the body of your article, it must first be uploaded to the Drive.

To add a file to an article

  1. On the Markdown toolbar, select Insert File.
  2. Select the file in the Drive that you wish to insert.
  3. Click Insert.
File Display
A PDF file will display a preview of the file and options to download or print. A Word, Powerpoint or Zip file will display as a download link only.

Attaching Files to Articles

Attach a file to an article instead of adding it directly to the article body. In the Project Settings menu, you can choose to display attached files on the right of the article or at the bottom of the article.
