Why do image filenames no longer appear when you hover over them?

I copy a lot of info out of Confluence for use in other platforms, and there are a lot of screenshots in the info. I used to be able to hover over the screenshot to see the filename, so I could pick it out of the attachments easily. This functions seems to have disappeared a couple days ago when the Caption feature was added. Is there any way to view the actual image filename?

Hi Jeff, there are a few ways you can get to the filename:

- Click on the file in the 'view' mode - the name is at the top left of the media viewer

- In either edit or view mode via the attachments macro

- Via the attachments page

Hope this helps?

My problem stems from the fact that I typically download all the attachments (30-50), which are often named Screenshot <date> <time>. It used to be that in Edit mode, I could hover over the image, and a pop-up would appear with the filename, so I could select the right image much easier and quicker. That feature seems to have disappeared, so now I have to either download the images from the page and rename them myself, or I have to follow the order (without messing it up) from the View page.

Ok understood, does using the attachments macro or link to the attachments page help?

I can get to the attachment page without an issue. But that doesn't show me the filename in the Edit content. 

As for the macro, I don't have that so I don't know what if it would help.

As I said originally, this was a function that Confluence did on its own without me needing to install anything. I'm curious if the functionality was deprecated and replaced with something else, or if there is a setting I need to turn on in order to get that back?

I appreciate the help.
