Default Attaching a document to Gmail

I have recently upgraded to HTC One from HTC Desire HD and I cannot attach a Word document in Gmail even though I have Astro File Manager. I only get an option to attach photo or video but no option for a file. I didn't have this problem with HTC Desire HD. Has anyone else faced this problem? And have you managed to fix it?
Thanks

Have you tried opening the document itself, hitting the drop down menu, going to "Share" and then finding G-Mail in the list of ways to Share said document?

Yes, I can attach the document if I am creating a new email but not if I am trying to attach the document to a response. It is very frustrating!

Have you tried replying, hitting the Paper clip, selecting "Document" and then finding your .DOC file?

That's the problem. I don't get the option for document. Only for a video or a photo.

Like, this is what I get when I go to reply to an email, and hit the paper clip.






Wait, are you using your mail through the Gmail app? That might be the issue.

Can you not access that account through the native E-mail manager that came with the device, rather than the application? I know I have a Microsoft Exchange and a regular Hotmail account that I'm managing with said application, and it gives me the same file sharing options for both accounts.

See I don't even get those amount of options! Maybe these phones are setup differently in the UK!

Yes, trying to use it on the Gmail app which used to work brilliantly on HTC Desire HD. I guess I will switch to the Mail app. Thanks

I found out that, if you select "attach picture" in the Gmail app and then use Astro, you get to view all your files (not only the pics) and you can select to attach even documents and pdf files.
