Drag and Drop from Open Attach


Hi All,


When using Open Attach, it's very easy to drag and drop an email over from Outlook into Open Attach but it doesn't work the other way around i.e Drag and drop a document FROM Open Attach into an email and, as far as I know, you can't copy and then paste it.  I know you could send docs to Open print manager and then construct email from there but it would be great if the drag and drop facility worked both ways.  Does anybody know if there are any plans on this?

Hi Hazel - hope you are well


I can't check in full right now - so perhaps someone else can provide a better answer - however ....


I do know that if you re-print the document to OPM (as you mentioned) then you are able to "copy" the file and paste to any application. You don't have to "construct" an email from there - just highlight the file, click copy and then it's ready to paste in to a new email.


There are more elegant solutions using additional tools from OGI - but the above should work fine


Hope this helps!

    • Hi Peter - thanks for joining recently and sorry to hear you are having some issues replying to posts   On investigation, this was in fact an incorrect setting for that particular Forum area and for registered users in the "Member" category   This has now been corrected and you should be able to "reply" to your posts - and any other posts!!   Thanks for spotting this one - and taking the time to raise with us.   Happy days 
    • sorry to be a pain, but I asked a question the other about 5.82 and im getting answers/replies but i  cannot reply back to any   Why is this?   
    • Yes - sorry - getting my OCP / ODC /OPM confused OPM allows trigger docs - as long as you dont want to add / review prior 👍
    • Mark it is also available under std OPM, whilst we don't currently use it I have just tested it by sending 3 different letters to the print queue the last one set as trigger doc and this sent all 3 to the printer out of OPM without user intervention
