It seems that other people expect it to be default . Also, I am using org-attach heavily in my workflows. Most of the time I found myself inserting the link to attachment right after attaching a file. Finally, it do not see any drawback adding the link to history vs not adding. I personally would prefer 'attached as a default, but it is mostly because I use org-attach already and attach: link would be shorter. Probably, 'file as default is safer if the user changes the :DIR: property for some reason.  https://www.reddit.com/r/emacs/comments/ihzh9r/orgmode_quicker_way_to_create_link_to_attachment/ > Feel free to propose a patch for this and the suggested switch, we can > apply it after Org 9.4. I will add it to my todo list.
