How to re-use File Assets

Hello, I have a textarea

<perch:content id="section-paragraph-left" type="textarea" label="App Version Description" textile="true" editor="markitup" />

When I select from tools 'File' tool I can upload a file (etc .pdf). This file is saved into assets. But how can I re use this file to link it to another textarea? Is there an option to create a link to files that are already uploaded, or I should always know the link to the existing file?

You can't currently reuse in another textarea, but you can into any structured content.

Hi Lukasz,

As far as I am aware, if you upload a file through a textarea editor like markitup, you can't reuse it in another textarea. You'd either have to upload another copy or insert a link to the original file.


Thanks guys, I will work on it. I decided to use type file for the files and seperate text area for description
