Downloading transaction attachments (receipt images) to my computer?

I snap a photo of a receipt and attach it to a transaction via my mobile app. it works. everything is uploaded into the cloud ad shows up on my PC quicken register. For my expense Reports and future Tax deductions for my CPA in case i am audited, I can run a report thru quicken of specific transactions BUT the attachment doesn't show up. How do I download the transactions WITH the attachments? of how do I download the attachments onto my PC in a jpeg or pdf format?

    No the export doesn't have any kind of OCR, the only thing you can do is export it back out as an image.
    I believe there is also an "Idea" thread asking for OCR, but I'm not sure where that thread is.

    This answer seems a bit "incomplete".

    First off your images that you are attaching using Mobile/Web should download to the Desktop data file when you sync.  Note that you can't attach/sync PDF files to Mobile/Web (you can attach them to the Desktop data file, but they will not sync).

    What you can't do is get a report that shows what transactions have attachments, that would be the "new idea".  You can see attachments if you are in the register.

    i get what you are saying and indeed the photo attachments are there in the quicken sync. i would like to know if there is a way to download said attachments as a jpeg or pdf file? there is an export function that makes the attachment a *.transaction receipt, something which my computer does not recognize. I therefore cannot understand what the export option really is for? i was hoping i could export the image to a readable format that could be saved separately on my computer...for expense reporting or IRS reporting
