Hi, in case of a public wiki, it looks that drag and drop from *.md files generates public links.
But in the case of a pdf file, even stored in downloads folder, drag and drop do not generate a public link. You have to manually share the file and add the link. Is it by design ?

Could you also add “upload / link to file” button and add files into downloads folder and auomatically share the file ?


The feature of generating download link for files in downloads folder will be added soon.

Can be give more information about this feature? When you editing a Markdown file, you may edit a Markdown that not in a public Wiki, in this case automatically put the linked files to download folder does not make sense.

Sharins files before adding links into the wiki is quite complicated compared to drag and drop of MD files and images :sunglasses:

You may have an Add file button with two actions :

  • Upload file > then copy to downloads Folder
  • Choose file > then choose from library subfolders

You could then address library mode managament and wiki managament.
The need for creating public links is only for public wikis, but if also works on a standard wiki, why not making it standard ?
