Pasting alt tags under images doesn't work

Dear Prismic team,

I'm not able to paste copied alt tags below an image inside the rich text editor. When I do so it deletes the image component. It's very exhausting to write all the alt tags by hand, therefore it's very important for us to be able to copy and paste them into the fields.

Kind regards

Hi Yannick,

Thanks for posting this issue, and welcome to the Prismic community!

This is a known issue, and our dev team has spent some time investigating a fix. It's something that we will fix eventually, but I can't say when.

Instead of managing all kinds of elements in the Rich Text field, we're increasingly encouraging users to use Slices to build pages. If you use an Image field in a Slice, the alt text copy-paste should work as you expect it to. (I know that it might not be possible for you to switch your project structure to Slices at this point, but I thought I'd mention it in case you're interested.)

I hope that clarifies things. Please let me know if you have any questions!
