Saving with Drag and Drop Widget

    I'm having a problem with the Drag and Drop widget. I have a form (called "2016 Grant Application") that uses the Drag and Drop widget. The widget works fine at first, but when I come back to the form to continue filling in information after I've saved it, all information is available except the information in the Drag and Drop sections.

    Can you please help me with this?

    Thank you,

    File uploads are not something that can be saved in your forms session data.  The auto-fill can fill the rest of the form as you have seen, but file uploads would indeed need to be dragged onto the widget each time.

    Regular file upload fields will have their associated files attached, however, the drag and drop widget is not capable of loading previous attachments.  It is only used to accept files.
