Was the new media manager designed by the windows 8 disaster team? (2 posts)

    The new media manager (WP3.5.1) is a huge step back and an incredible mistake in the workflow. I don't understand why mess something that worked fine. I would like the old Media Manager back.
    The things I loved and miss:
    _The default upload tab
    _The quick response.
    _The default way I could see only the media uploaded to the post and not the thousands of images I have already used in other posts and that i will never reuse. This obviously slows down the manager.
    _The vertical list of small thumbnails and text. We could show only the media we want to edit while the others were automatically hide.
    _The way I could edit the informations of each image or video attached in full tab, not in a squeezed 1/4 right panel. I have now to struggle to check and edit title, captions and URLs while the other wide 3/4 of the window is occupied with dozens of other thumbnails. Frankly, who had this brilliant "windows metro" idea?
    Please, let us get the old media manager back.

    WordPress isn't a corporation.
    It's easy to forget that WordPress is free software. It was developed out of people's free time and it is supported out of people's free time.

    Hopefully that should turn your frustration into empathy and appreciation.
