Allow attachment of .pdf files, etc. instead of only image files.
It would be REALLY nice to be able to attach .pdf's (among other filetypes) to entries in the database. We keep track of thousands of .pdf drawings and it would be nice to have the file attached to each entry in the database.
Thank you for your suggestion on improving LightSwitch. However, Visual Studio 2015 is the last release of Visual Studio that includes the LightSwitch tooling and we recommend users not begin new application development with LightSwitch. That said, we will continue to support users with existing LightSwitch applications, including critical bug fixes and security issues as per the Microsoft Support Lifecycle.
