Insert Existing Attachment into Comment on New Jira Issue View?

Hello, this seems absurdly silly. 

We are using Jira Service Management Cloud.

On a JSM ticket, an attachment was uploaded to the Issue but not attached directly to a comment. 

At a later point in time, we want to insert that existing attachment into a new comment, but there's no way to do that.

The "Files & images" button in the New Jira Issue View only opens a browser file upload prompt, it doesn't offer a way to pick one of the existing Attachments on the Issue. 

Is this by design?

That is an unfortunate feature deprecation in the New Issue View. Thank you for providing the answer. I look forward to seeing this implemented soon.
