    As title really.

    In the screenshot you can see the .txt file attachment. Is there any way of actually opening it and seeing the content while editing the draft email?

    After I sent it I could access and view the content fine but I seemingly can’t figure out a way while editing the actual email.

    I tried copying it into a blank note and all it did was copy the photo icon of the attachment...go figure.

    Edit: Ok, so I can’t copy and paste it into Notes but if I open Notes in Split View I can drag it across and contents of the text file populates the new note. Is this really the only way? I have to open another app to do it?

    What if I was writing this email on an iPhone?

    I thought long-pressing on the attachment opens it? Could be wrong (and unable to test at the moment).

    Unfortunately not. If I do that it just turns “draggable” - if I don’t drag it anywhere then it just doesn’t do anything. It might have worked pre-iOS 11?
