Hi,

1. Am trying to attach a pdf file to a mail message using Apple Mail, but it always expands the file into the body of the mail message, rather than leaving it as an unopened file as it does for an excel file for instance. Same outcome with drag and drop, as with insert file command.

Got around it by reverting to Gmail and browsing for the file name to be attached, but surely it should work in Mail as per attaching other types of files?

2. Another query - how to pdf more than one excel spreadsheet at a time within the one file - ie whole workbook into one pdf file? I use print command, save as pdf, clicking the whole workbook option, but no luck - always pdf's just the open sheet.

thanks for any help with these - Malc50

1. Not sure how to keep it from doing that, but it shouldn't present any problems, it will work the same as a regular attachment and if you check off "Send widows-friendly attachments" (in the chose file screen) it should work well for windows users too. Hope that helps =/

Use the Rep System!!

Tx for this - yes, am using windows friendly check. Have checked again, and in fact the email sends with pdf file attached ok, but also outlines the file contents in the body of the email. Highlighting and deleting this prior to sending negates the file attachment.....??!

Any comments re being able to pdf the whole excel file contents, both worksheets ??

cheers - Malc 50

You are correct.

To address the OP: This is simply how Mail displays these types of attachments. At the other end, especially to a Windows machine, it will appear as a normal attachment.

How many sheets are there? If you open them in Preview you can simply drag and drop the pages from the sidebar into one document. Hopefully you don't have like 500 sheets.
