Pasting in alt text removes the whole image

Hello. When pasting in alternative text into an image in a rich text field, it replaces the entire image with the pasted text.

Any known workarounds to this?

Technical thought: Could be a bug… because when the alt text input is selected, the interface has the entire image in focus, rather than focus inside the input. So presumably, the editors copy-paste command is replacing the element that has focus, the whole image, rather than the inside that element.

Hi @murray, thanks for reporting this. This definitely seems like a bug. I will submit a ticket with our @team-tech-support and someone there will look into this as soon as they are able.

They will reach out here when they have something to report back.
