Question Android FM app photos default email

The Mrs has just jumped ship from Apple to Android and is enjoying the FM app but doesn’t appear to be able to set FM as the default email handler, so is unable to send a photo from the photo ‘share’ menu as FM doesn’t appear there.
Any tips appreciated.

Unfortunately you cannot use the Android Share feature to send a photo via the FM App. The App doesn't support this.
Instead you need to open the FM App and enter the Compose screen, then use the Attach File button and navigate to the Gallery.

Alternatively you can download an App such as Windows Outlook and setup your account in this as well.
When you want to use the Share functionality on Android, you can direct it to use the Outlook App to send the email (instead of the FM App).

Edit - corrected name of windows email app

I feared as much - although the workaround isnt exactly hassle in my view.
Many thanks for your reply.
