why show the attachment's path?

Why does it show the entire attachment path whenever I upload an attachment, e.g.,

Until I save the comment?  Why not just attach it so that it looks like an attachment, with an icon under the comment or something.  If i accidentally type into the path it of course screws up the attachment.  What is the point of this?

Hi @Seth Gilmore when I add an attachment it only shows the name of the image or file. I am not able to click on your png file. Can you please provide more details on what you are referring to?

Thank you,

Jodi

Hi Jodi, here's a quick video to show you what happens.  In the first instance I "accidentally" edit the code or link or whatever it is that gets inserted when I attach the file, and the attachment becomes non-functional; in the second instance it works correctly.  Either way, though, what I find odd is how the code/link is pasted into the body of the comment in the first place.
