This issue happens when there is a small browser window and/or large image so that the message text box has vertical scroll bars

1 Insert image to post

Result: No text field for alt text.

Workaround is to

  • Scroll browser back to see the image scroll bars
  • Scroll message browser to see bottom of image
  • Highlight image again to see the image edit menu.
Note: this is even more clunky on mobiles.

* Why is the indent/list dropdown showing over the image ? I will report as a separate issue.
