    It would be a great improvement to be able to set the Maximum Attachment File Size by attachment type. So for example if I wanted to allow pdf files that are 5MB to be uploaded I can do that while allowing only .5MB for jpg files.

    I'd like to take it a little further and be able to restrict it to certain types within a forum node itself.

    I can see where this would be a very useful function as well.

    I was just about to post this for the same exact reason.
    I'd love to see this.
    This feature would be well-received.

    Yes - that would be a realy nice feature. So we can set for images that saves without compression (BMP, GIF, PNG eg) to a lower maximum size.

    In a optimum, this feature can set by node ID. :D ;)

    I have the same issue. Need to allow large PDFs and limit the size for all other file types.

    I need to allow PDF's in certain sections but not all. Currently members have to email me so I can add them. Be great if they could do it themselves on XF

    You can do this with this new addon: https://xenforo.com/community/resources/advanced-attachment-system-aas.5060/

    With this you can set on a per node base the allowed file types and sizes (kb and pixel) :)
