Copy test case attachments

In TestLink we can export test cases with keywords, custom fields, requirements,...
When test cases are associated with attachments, is there a way to export and re-import in another project the test cases with the same attachments?
If not, is it a possible feature for the next release of the application?

Not possible.
Not in roadmap, but if your company is willing to contribute (pay for development) can be put on top of new features

Wonderful! I tested on my local installation and it is working.
Please make this new feature available in 1.9.17. Thanks a lot!

I still have one concern on the export and import of test cases attachments.
Here are the steps that I followed:
1. In project P1 I added an attachment to a test suite and exported the test suite (with 5 test cases) - XML file created successfully
2. I imported the XML file to another project P2. The test suite with attachment and 5 test cases were created successfully
3. In the same test suite from project P1, I added an attachment to the first test case TC1 and exported the test case - XML file created successfully
4. Then I came back to project P2, selected the test suite that was created previously and imported the same test case TC1.
I have chosen to update the test case TC1 if same name. Because the test case was already created in the test suite, I thought that the test case would have been updated with the new attachment.
But I got this message after import

Test Case : TC1 : Attachment "XYZ" has been ignored because it is already linked to the test element

Could you please let me know what does that mean 'test element'?

If I decide to create a new test case if same name, the new test case is created successfully with the attachment.

So, if test cases already exist in a project P2 and we decide to associate some of them with attachments in project P1, we export and re-import the test cases in P2.
How to update them in P2 by adding the attachment?

@tjosephine => Please make this new feature available in 1.9.17. Thanks a lot!
=> still asking your company to think about contributing to TESTLINK in the way MrBricodage does => developing or buying support or buying custom development.

We are a group of people using TestLink inside my company.
In the past I provided some pieces of development for a feature (viewtopic.php?f=11&t=8034) that was finally integrated into TestLink. Thanks!
This attachment feature was also requested by some users and it would be really appreciated to see it in TestLink.
