Thanks for your time filling this form!

Is it possible to add your created document also as an attachment? Not all testers have an iOS-'machine', and especially not an app (Pages).

What was the content of the document shown in thz screenshots?
Is this bug also reproducable with an easy document with only a word/text withoutmarkup?

Thanks in advance
