Attach to step-HP ALM 12.53

Can somebody explain what is the difference between attach to Step vs attach to Run?
One of my users attached the screenshot to step and that screenshot has been transferred to Test Plan module as well. Is there a way that my user can attach the screen to 'test step' while executing the manual test run and HP ALM shouldn't transfer that screenshot to 'Test Plan' module, let me know if you have any further questions.

Hi,

Attach to Step Opens the Attachment page, enabling you to view and add attachments to the actual test steps in the Run details. (see Attach to step.png)

Attach to Run Opens the Attachment page, enabling you to view and add attachments to the test run under attachments in the Run details. (see Attach to run.png)

In run details window we can see the exact difference between Attach to Step and Attach to Run. In Run Details, Attachments Tab section, this is where an attachment added with the Attach to Run option would be stored. The Run Details, Steps Tab is where an attachment added with the Attach to Step option would be added. I have attached the screenshots(Attach to Run, Attach to Step, Attach to) to this case for more information.

ALM will not transfer that screenshot to 'Test Plan' module. I tested this in our test environment. Refer the attached screenshot (Attach to) for more
information.
