Attaching a Google document to a Gmail message

So of all the things I figured I would be able to do with Google Documents, attaching a Google doc to a Gmail message I figured would be a no-brainer.

I can't figure it out. I looked, I Googled, I searched help, no such luck. I had to save the Google Doc to a file on my computer and then attach it to my message.

This seems like an obvious use case, and a trivial implementation. What's the deal?

This is an example of what I am talking about when I say "you need more than raw brainpower" to companies that claim to hire really smart people. Sometimes really smart people don't see the forest through the trees.

I agree with this. I can't be that this is not a very common use case.

maybe there has been something out since your April post. I'll continue searching.

Don't think it's there yet still. Is there a place which we can submit suggestions?
