Deleting Objects with Documents

Question

When you have a document attached to a project/task/issue does the document get deleted also?

Answer

If a user has edit permissions to an object like a project, task or issue and a document is attached to that object it will be removed.  The reason is that the parent objects permissions supersede the documents individual permissions.  With the Recycle Bin the document can be restored by restoring the object the document was attached to.
