Note that Journal Files cannot be linked to directly from anywhere other than the AppSoftware Journals web application due to restrictions replaced on the referrer. Journal Files is not intended to be a file sharing platform, however you can copy links from other services into your markdown where this restriction won't apply.

You can upload any type of file as a Journal File provided that it is within size limits.
