Hi I have

a one , hmm maybe a little stupid Question to you :)

When I look at video overview for content editors ( on the frontpage, I can see that somebody, who want to add any picture to the Content, just click on the small image in the editor, a then on the right side of the admin site he can for example upload any new Image or create any folder, really fine, but ...

I have just installed a 2.3.4 version on my localhost, wanted to add some example Picture to the content and unfortunelly I don't see the possibilty to create or to upload any folder / image. (see Attacj File)

Do I need some Modul ??

Thanks for any answer

Thanks @zenmonkey,

I knew that possibility, but what happened with this feature from editor/image editor (see Attach File) ?

Like you see there are direct links to create a new folder and to upload a new image. This is more comfortable to me :)

If I recall correctly, this feature was deliberately dropped because of problems with SWF-upload .....

What is the status on fixing the "upload while in the editor" function?

I am about to start a project for a client who could really do with this.
