  • When I have added some images to the WP gallery block, and then want to add some new images, I can only upload new images. I can’t add new images from the media library.

    Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

  • Hi @moxie, there is a way to do this. If you click the pencil icon on the toolbar of the gallery block the media library interface is shown in a popover. On the left-hand side there’s an option ‘Add to Gallery’ which lets you choose existing images from the media library.

    My understanding is that in WordPress 5.3 this will become clearer—there will be a ‘Media Library’ button at the bottom of the gallery block for selecting images from your library.

    Thanks! I overlooked the pencil. Assumed that would bring me to editing the image itself.
