Summary18557: Email Template Attachments appear to carry over with copied survey, but do not work

Surveys that are copied appear to carry over attachments inside the Email templates, but the invitation emails (for example) have no attachments when sent.

When viewing the copied survey's Email template page, the attachment appears; but it seems to be linked back to the file in the previous survey, rather than creating a new file for the new survey in the copying process. I wonder whether the invitation sending code disregards file attachments that belong to other surveys? Even though the editing page can access it.

Steps To Reproduce

Steps to reproduce

Set up a basic survey.
Attach a file to the Invitation Email template.
Add a Survey participant, and send them an invitation email

Email is sent with attachment.
Create a new survey by copying the first survey.
Leave the 'Copy survey resource files and adapt links' ticked when copying.
View the Invitation Email template - file appears as attached.
Add a Survey participant to the second survey, and send them an invitation email
Email is sent without attachment.

Expected result

Second/copied survey's invitation is sent with attachment.

Actual result

Second/copied survey's invitation is sent without attachment.

TagsNo tags attached.

Apologies for the formatting mistake in the Steps to Reproduce box!

The problem is that the attachment data array is not updated when you copy, so the URL/path still points to the original survey file.

Translate Links function was updated as well to be able to treat local paths

This link translation only happens if the copy resources checkbox is check.

If it is not checked, the attachments info is copied but not updated.
Should we remove all attachments if so?
Add a new ticket?

Remove the attachments, but show an additional message in the result screen if that happened.

Still a good idea, because it's not the same issue.
