Notepads are used to store additional information/notes about the constituent. However, they are not designed to contain media objects (photos, sounds files, PDFs, etc.)
In The Raiser's Edge (or the Database View of RE NXT) if a file needs to be linked to a Notepad, add the file as media to the constituent record and mention in the Notepad that related media is present.
In the RE NXT Web View, media is called "attachments." Attachments can be added on constituent records and some other record types, such as actions. Please refer to following for more information:
