Description

I’ve looked around quite extensively for this, but can it appears this feature simply doesn't exist in WP currently.

Basically, when you’re on a post and want to either “insert media” or select “featured image”, you cannot view the gallery list on a post using the “list view”. Rather the only option appears to be the default “grid view”.

The "list view" interface is already available in Gallery, is there any reason why this isn't available in the post editor as well?

I've seen a number of requests for this online, especially when there are installations that have a large number of images that are similar (and thus you need to easily see the meta information to differentiate).

Thanks for the ticket @ashkas. This will require new backbone views be added to wp.media to handle a list view and some way of switching between views in using the same collection.

In the current media library, the list view is entirely generated in PHP, so adding a backbone list view could allow us to enhance the media library as well.
