I often get pictures and files sent via Threema (Secure Andriod Messenger) and I often need to send those via E-mail to: for example work-emailaccounts or to other private emailaccounts. On Android you just click on sharefuction of Threema and pick Emai-lapp, the file gets attached to the new created email. On SailfishX that does not work. You only get a new email without attachment. So the way to get the wanted file attached is this:

  1. save received file
  2. select the file in the nemo/android_storage/Threema/Threema Pictures/...
  3. copy file
  4. go back to nemo/
  5. paste file into a folder
  6. open email-app
  7. cteate new email
  8. attach file

It should be easier than that! Is there a way to share files easier between Android-side and Sailfish-side of the System and apps? And how much work is it make it work? If security is the issue here, maybe there is a way to encrypt and decrypt files that move between those two parts of the system... (I'm not a programming guy, so forgive me my stupid question ;-) )

Edit: All the Questions about across system filesharing end up in workarounds or in solutions from open repos. It is not a solution in the official way, as open repos is seamingly not an official supported part of Sailfish OS (uninstall and reinstall before Updates) and I'm not willing to mess around with the system (also becouse I don't know how) Jolla should come up with a solution for such a basic feature. A regular Customer (the dumb-user, count me in from time to time) is overtaxed with that. Sailfish OS schould be more intuitive and easy to use, and that means not serching around in systemfolders for files you want to share across systems (Sailfish and Dalvik).

do you have a link to your question? The problem is there are so many patches and workaraounds for problems and bugs, that an ordinary user like me gets lost in this whole mess!

you might also like share to clipboard ...

@pawel, you means this topic "Add sharing to Android apps". This patch works fine only in one way "SFOS -> Android".

yes and there is nothing else.

rwgarding pure text, share to clipboard helps
