Multimedia macro deprecated in cloud, can't add video attachments already uploaded

Gregory Muir February 9, 2023

So this is a bit maddening. We use the multimedia macro all the time in server. We're migrating to cloud. They took away the macro because the new editor doesn't need it, just drag and drop! Wonderful. So, I'm looking and can't figure this out -- if I have my video I already uploaded that migrated over, how do I drag and drop it to the page? Support says there's currently no way to this and the workaround is to download it ot my computer and then drag and drop it back into the interface. 

......What. That's stupid. Incredibly stupid. That's the solution I came up with on my own but thought I was just missing the correct way I'm supposed to be doing it. 

No. This is the only way. 

What the.... Haiyaa. Same issue for images. I have an image as an attachment. The image button on server that shows me what's attached to the page now just shows me my computer's files for uploading. Completely different functionality. 

This is BROKEN. Put back the old macro until the new editor can actually replicate the functionality. Or just give up on the new editor because the old editor was perfectly fine.
