Hi Milan, 
I'm sorry you're having problems here, for starters, [[Attach:...]]
syntax is unrelated to PmWikiDraw, it just needs to 'work' so that I
know that all your file permissions are correct, you can't upload
images into PmWikiDraw in this fashion, an administrator has to do
this manually on the server :(

In order to diagnose the fault we need to turn on the java console on
your browser, if you're on Windows you should be able to do this
through the little Java icon on your 'system tray' or through the
control panel (either Java or Java Plugin xyz).

Having done this if you enable debugging of the script by adding the line:
  $EnableDrawingDebug = true;
to your farmconfig and send me the contents of the console,
alternatively, if your website is publicly available send me a link to
it ?
