How can I attach Documents to my contacts?

Attaching documents and files to your Contacts Journal contacts is a valuable way to stay organized and carry important documents with you to meetings. You can attach word documents, PDF files, images, presentations, audio files etc; you can then view these files from within Contacts Journal. Note that in each case, a copy of the file is saved inside Contacts Journal; there is no link to the original file maintained (this might change in a future version).
