Image Picker

    The image picker at the top right is a very useful feature. However, there are several times when I want to use different img tags, so it would be nice to be able to have selectable alternatives.

    No problem I thought, as a workaround I'll just keep the alternatives in a text file and paste them in as required... It was at this point I discovered that although the text for the img tag can be selected, it can't be deleted, copied or pasted to. In fact all you can do is type it in or restore the default.

    Hopefully it will be easy to fix and would make a great feature even better!

    Ian.

      Chami,

      I think Ian is writing of trying to customize the img tag.

      I have noticed that for the "alt" attributes, such as the '_nameext',
      can only be erased with the backspace key. This to me is not a problem.
      However, removing it does not eliminate the extension from being
      included in the "alt" attribute. Removing the 'img_size_short' does
      function without the image size being included in the attribute.

        Hey Charles,

        If you're wanting to include image file name without extension in alt
        attribute, this will work:

         {{_img_name}}
        

        Thank you for pointing out the backspace workaround.

          Great! I had it so the extension didn't appear and I thought it was by
          removing the '_nameext'.

          On updating versions, does this get changed back to the program default?

            If it does, it's not by design (aka a bug) :) Let me know if the next
            setup overrides your custom image tag.

      Great catch Ian! I'll address these and possibly even add a way to keep
      a list of custom tags so you could quickly pick one you've entered.

      Thank you for your feedback.
