Hallo,

short, in a nutshell: There a some issues with inserting or attaching files to joplin. It concerns the functions “Attach photo” and “Attach any file”.

I’m using joplin every day on Android, Linux and iOS, great piece of software. I think about quitting evernote. But there are some issues. If I want to attach any file to joplin on iOS. Then there is only this error message:

The file “XXX” couldn’t be opened because there is no such file.

I have no problem with the version under Linux Mint.

on iOS 12:
If I want to attach a photo: I can insert a photo from the library, but not make a fresh photo and insert it.

on Android 6:
Android tested at the moment seems to have another issue. I can attach a fresh photo but not attach a photo from the library on my phone. There is no explicit error-message, just the note stays without the wanted element. I can not attach any file to it. I get only a link to the file.

Greetings
Notetaker

when you wrote

you mean, add a file in attachment ?
if so which kind of file ?


#3

Yes, I mean, add a file in attachment. I tested with pdf and with plain text. Same result. Seems like a problem with the filepath.

I forgot to mention: The files were from the app documents and from the regular files app on iOS 12.

Thanks in advance.

I edited the first post. More clearance was neccessary.
