How to re-use already uploaded images or files with the new editor?

We've migrated from an Server instance to cloud. That has worked without any bigger problems. As the old content uses the old editor, working with these migrated content was the same as before.

With some content we've started to convert them to the new editor. By re-arranging content within a page we're missing the possibility to add already uploaded images or files to the page. These files are still attached to the corresponding pages but it seems that there's no functionality to access them for re-adding.

Is this functionality really missing? Is there maybe some kind of "work around"? Will this capability come back to the new editor in the future?

I'm a little bit confused about the description of the before mentioned issue as it don't explicitly describes the missing ability to insert an already present image within the attachments of the specific page.

Maybe I don't understand the whole focus of that issue, but if this would fit either, I'm fine :)

@Volker Jakob good point well made! I'll get the wording on the ticket updated.

It's now December 2021, and still not solved...

In my case, I would like to have design elements centrally attached so I can switch them out with updated images later and all pages with them will automatically be updated.

Thanks @jorgen.bjerke, by design elements do you mean things like Logos etc?
