  • Hi, I often use to place a link inside a text to watch/download a file PDF.
    I like very much Gutenberg block editor, but this option was lost with it.
    I would like to do something like: “Click HERE to watch the PDF document” and link the word -HERE- to the PDF. the procedure to do this is very hard.
    Go to media, copy the URL of the attachment and then in Block (like paragraph) make an internal link and paste the URL.

    Suggestion, make the possibility to link a media when placing an inside text link (that I found in head block of paragraph [CMD-K]).

    Thank you very much in advance.

  • There is a block for Files.
    You can also make a Classic block and do it however you are used to doing it.

    thank you for the suggestion.
    I know the File Block but it makes a new block.
    But I notice that if I drag&drop a file it make the block and give me the possibility to instantly copy the URL.
    Before Gutenberg (classic editor) I was able to drag&drop a PDF inside a text and it makes a linked text with the name of the file.

    The classic block has the same problem, after creating it I have to delete the block.

    Thank you again
