Attach a file in Goalscape Desktop

When attaching a PDF-file in Goalscape Desktop and then clicking on it to view the file the application struggles. Instead of opening the file, or showing a preview of the file, (not even in presentation mode) Goalscape starts my web-browser along with a SAVE-window asking me what file I want to save. Then when choosing to save the file, it "downloads" the file through my web-browser from my harddisk to my harddisk. Pretty odd hu?

So, when building a goalscape (in desktop-version) I would like to add files to the attach-pane in order to easily show or start these documents, files and pictures later when presenting the GS that I have created. Now this is not working at all.

Ideally, It would be much easier if I could just drag and drop all the files into the attach-pane. Seams like a modest request to me. And all file-types should be supported if possible.

I´m a professor at a Business School and really like this application, but It needs to be fully functional in order for me to use it live in the classroom. Hopefully, these issues can be fixed easily, I would appreciate it.

Best regards,

    And by the way. I HAVE already installed AIR 2.0.

    Hi Carl,

    the functionality to open attachments in its native application was broken by a recent AIR update. But the reason that it was broken was because of a flaw in our code. We have fixed it and will release hopefully by the end of the week.

    Regarding drag and drop - we will implement that soon - sometimes things seem very modest but are quite hard to do if you look closer. We do our very best.

    Please excuse the inconvenience.

    Kind regards,
