In the old editor I was able to insert another instance of an attachment I'd previously added to a page. I can't find any way to do this in the new editor - it always triggers the "file open" dialogue box straight away.
This is cumbersome as I have to redownload the image from the attachments, insert and then delete it again.
Does it compare hashes of the files to ensure it only ever stores the data once, or something?
Hello @Adam Badura,
Thanks for reaching out to the Atlassian Community!
There are some details about this change in the article below posted by our product manager Owen.

Now it's Atlassian's turn to finally stop delaying and bring back the feature that was removed.

I really cannot think of a reason why this was changed.
Oh, I don't really think it is a New feature - it was there for years and was removed.
Having stumbled upon this and https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFCLOUD-65302 while working for a client - i'm thinking that i don't want my organization to ever migrate to the cloud version.
