How to insert image from attachments?

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 @Andrew McDonald,

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

With the recent changes in Confluence, the ability to insert attachments that were previously attached was removed.

For now, it’s only possible to insert files directly from your own machine. 

For more details, please check the ticket and the article below:

There is a feature request suggesting improvements for that:

Please, click on vote and also watch to receive future updates from our product team.

Kind regards,

Thanks @Angélica Luz . Very disappointing to learn the functionality has simply been stripped out. Those tickets date back years - how long and how many upvotes before the feature is reimplemented?

Hi Andrew,

It will depend on other factors, not only votes and we don’t have an ETA of when a feature will be implemented.
