Attaching files on the iPad
If you're living in the 21st century, chances are you have lots of experience using email programs on the computer. To attach a file to an email on the computer, all you have to do is compose an email and click a few buttons to add the attachment. However, the sequence is reversed when attaching a file on the iPad. Instead of composing the email first, you must start with the attachment rather than the Mail app.
Say, for example, that you are on your iPad and want to email someone a document you have been working on in Apple's Pages word processer. To send the attachment, you should open the Tools menu and then select Share and Print. Then, select the file type you wish to send the document in, either PDF or .doc
When working in most other apps, look for the share or action menu, which looks like a box with an arrow inside, to email someone an attachment of some content from the app. For example, if you want to email someone a link you have open in Safari on the iPad, open the action menu and press Mail Link to this Page.
As you can see, it is easy to send email attachments from your iPad. It just requires that you do things a little differently than what you are accustomed to.
