Hello Misha

Welcome to Atlassian Community. It's nice to have you join us!

As we roll out the new editor, some features that were formerly available in the old editor may not yet be available for use. We go over a few of these on our Confluence Cloud Editor Roadmap.

For example, I raised a feature request for linking text to attachments a while back, and you can find that here:

There's also another feature for linking specifically attachments as text:

I can see that specifically linking images as a link is in our short-term backlog. Linking attachments with text is not yet, but I believe the two should be related.

As a workaround in the meantime, indeed, the only workaround is to obtain the URL for an attachment using the Attachments Macro on the page (. . . > Attachments).

Let me know if you have any questions about that.
