View Attachment in a block, not a popup

#1

I want to have my attachment open in a block, so I can refer to the attachment AND update data in my record at the same time.

Right now it seems all I can do is load attachment in a popup window, which is good, but when attachment is visible, my base is obscured and I can’t access or edit it - my usecase is to inpout data from the attachment into my base. Very frustrating to have to load attachment into an external viewer when those blocks are right there!

Am I missing something?
