Yes indeed, duplicated functionality for all export backends as it stands. > > If attachments links are similar to file links from an export point of > view, then I suggest to add a phase in ox.el to expand the former into the > latter, before even using export back-ends.

And I like this suggestion, although that means I probably have to dig into the ox.el code. Not an easy task. I suspect you'd guide me to adding logic inside org-export-as for this. I'll have a look starting from there. But wouldn't mind some further insights here! Regards Gustav > > Regards, > > -- > Nicolas Goaziou
