After downloading a PDF file from Gmail with the help of ASTRO File Manager in my Samsung Galaxy S III, I tried to find the PDF file to attach in the email (Gmail). Unfortunately, only images get attached, but none of the PDF files.

How can I do that? Where exactly am I going wrong in the process?

You can attach files with the gmail app. Just click attach image, select Astro to browse and select the PDF you wish to attach
