Support embedding images/files in issue description
When create/edit issue, in description area, we can only insert image URL.
It's better if you can make Redmine posible to insert any file to description.
Maybe it can be associated with Files module, users can choose files and those files is uploaded to Redmine, and the links will be inserted to description.
Why don't you support pure HTML-style editor? CKEditor is good.

Perhaps I'm getting you wrong, but you can already use images in the descriptions, you just need to attach a file and then refer to it using
You can not directly paste images into browsers, that's an inherent limitation...

I know I can upload files to redmine first, then use the link of the files.
But it cost time. Users want a browse-file dialog and then redmine should attach selected files to description without intermediate steps.
That's just my idea. That may bring more convinient to users. Do it if you can :D

- File ouch.png added
Testing the advice in comment 1, I didn't realise that was supported.
Edit: Eg to display the image attached, I enter
!ouch.png! in my comment. Great. So it's not literal
!attached_image! you want, but instead using the uploaded filename.
For ages I've been doing this the long way, uploading image then getting the absolute URL and going back to edit my images in - thanks Jan!
