The alt text for an image has long been editable, but doing so required editing the image markdown, and a risk of breaking the upload if the wrong change was made. Users can now quickly edit the image alt text right from the preview window, just as image size can be changed. Hover over the image and the edit options will appear.

Bart, is there a good reason to use beta software for something as central to the Blender scene as the official community? Do you also use dev. builds of your chosen OS for regular PC work, trusting that a bug won’t blow away files?
I know there is an appeal to stay on the leading edge in the world of FOSS, I do it too with Blender and Godot. For very important stuff though, it is prudent to either stay with release builds or look closely at the tracker to make sure the new stuff did not bring severe regressions.
I was about to ask the same. When I read “We just upgraded from 2.8.0beta7 to 2.8.0beta11 and have already received several reports of this happening since.” I immediately wondered what is the reason to use beta version, and why would one want to update from beta to another beta.
Or does Discourse suffer from the “forever beta” syndrome where they don’t want to every put final sticker on it ever?
I noticed that too, but it only started happening for me this morning - about 24 hours after the upgrade. We’re getting hit pretty hard by soms search bots right now, I think there may be a resouc issue - I’ll look into it.
Not sure when it started, but yeah not happening all the time. I can force it to occur by switching back and forth between sites quickly, so might be due to high load. Its not that much of an issue, so dont worry, thanks for looking into it.
