WordPress 3.9.0 introduced a nice little feature: You could drag media (e.g. images) right into the editor window when compsing (or editing) an article, without having to click the “Add Media” button first.
The matter at hand is, ever since I upgraded to 3.9.1, this nice to have feature has sadly been broken. I can no longer drag media in the editor window, because the “Drag to upload” window simply doesn’t appear, and still dragging them there does nothing. So I have to click the “Add Media” button again every time I want to add an image etc. to the article, just as it was before 3.9.0.
It would be great if you could fix this, so you can upload media by dragging it into the editor window, as it was in 3.9.0, without having to click the “Add Media” button.
Finally, a request: If you upload media using the article composer media uploader (by clicking the “Add Media” button), you get a link to the file you just uploaded right after the upload.
However, if you use the media uploader from the left side panel (Media > Add file), you don’t get a link. Instead, you must click the “Edit” link after the upload, for every single file! Especially if you uploaded several files at once, having to click the “Edit” link for every single one of them just to get the link for the file is a serious nuisance. Could you make it so that when using the media uploader from the left side panel, you get the link for the file right after the upload, without having to click the “Edit” link for every single file? That would be awesome!
