Description

https://core.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/38949 is awesome, but the next logical move is to allow content editors to easily insert the PDF thumbnail into the Editor upon Insert Media.

There will need to be a UI for allowing the content editor to choose whether to insert the image or the textual link. The easiest place for this to live without a major UI overhaul would be in the Insert Media workflow itself.

In fact the "Size" pull-down menu doesn't really do anything right now for PDFs, so it would be a good place to add an option "Document Link Only", and then honour the other sizes when selected and actually insert the image.
