NB: There is a new (additional) way to attach documents by embedding them into the topic notes - see here
It is possible to attach documents (Word, PDF, Excel etc.) to topics - and then view, email and print them all from within iThoughts. The process is not as 'simple' as it might be - but then it's never simple dealing with documents on iPads :-(
The process is as follows:
- Get the document into Dropbox (via your PC or Mac)
- Using the Dropbox app on your iPad, send the document over into iThoughts.
- In iThoughts, paste the document into a topic.
This will embed a COPY of the document in iThoughts. You cannot edit it - and if the original document is modified, those changes will not be applied to the copy in iThoughts - so it's really for read only documents.
...and the process in pictures:
Get the document into Dropbox.
Send the document from the Dropbox app to iThoughts
The document will be placed on the clipboard and can be pasted into a topic
