I'm building a "help" panel for a custom post type. Its going to use images marked for use in this panel. The way I'm doing that is using the
attachment_fields_to_save hooks to add a checkbox.
But now, when I want to simply edit existing images uploaded to that post, there is no way to do it. The only option is to "Insert into post". I can see the checkbox, but what I want to do is check it and click "Save changes" or "Update".
Even if I select an image click "Edit" , then there is no option to save changes, and this seems wrong from a user interface point of view - "Insert into post" is not an appropriate action to exit an edit screen.
- Click "Add Media"
- Click "Media Library"
- Select "Uploaded to this post" from dropdown filter
- Select an image (previously uploaded)
- Attachment details appear on right with custom checkbox "Use as help image" visible
- No option to check this box and save changes - only "Insert into post" which I don't want to do
Expected behaviour would be as above but with the ability to make changes to attachment meta and save them WITHOUT inserting into post.
