You could cut and paste it in.

You can only attach images to your posts on CR4.

Your options for sharing a document are:

  1. Take a screen shot and post it as an image (although it may be too small to read)
  2. Copy and paste the text in
  3. Upload to a file sharing service like Google Docs or Dropbox, and share a link to your document in your post

Thanks for the info, SavvyExacta,

I tried 'copy and paste' but it would not work, likely because the Word docu is a screen shot of an image. It is not really text.

It would seem to me attaching a file whatever it is, Word, Exel, pdf, picture, etc. should be possible? But then I am not a software guru. It would be a user recommendation of mine to add that feature if at all possible.

If it's an image, use the 'Insert Image', the little camera looking icon at the top.

Hi Rixter,

I had tried that before and now again to no avail. It is the extension that is being rejected. The note said so. I just did not read it properly before.

Saving the image as JPG did the trick. It now worked.

Thank you kindly. It is much appreciated.

In your Word document, right click on the image and click save as image. Then you can upload that image here in a post.
