New Editor - insert file as link

On the old editor it was possible to insert a link and then choose an attachment to upload. This would upload the file and just show a link to it, rather than a thumbnail. How is this done in the new editor?

Hi Jake,

  1. Upload your attachment to the page.
  2. Go to the Attachments view of the page.
  3. Right click on the attachment and copy the link to.temp.png
  4. Insert the link into a page like you would insert any other link.

Hope this helps! :)


So now whatever previously took 2-3 sec, now is going to take 30? Whoever made this decision was clearly a genius

Bring back an easier way to do this.  Maybe next time get some data on home many customers use this feature and talk to them.

It doesn't really help, especially if you have a large number of files to add to a page.

Fully agree. It is an absolute nuisance indeed, taking up much more time than the previous method. Almost renders it unusable for commented document lists.

I second this comment. 90% of the time I only want to show link so my page doesn't get clogged. Please bring this feature back.
