    33Using the Visual Editor (Classic), I see your result when editing alt text within the post. Likewise, if you edit the alt text in the Media Library after attaching an image to a post, it does not update the alt text for that image within the post content.

    5 Since there are some situations where you might want different alt text for the same image in another post or in another context, the discrepancy could be on purpose (see Sergey's comment on ticket:47808#comment:2). One example of a different context for the same image is a custom header image (see ticket:46124). It's worth leaving those text values separate. However, I myself thought that editing the post image's alt text within the Image Details dialog would update it within the library. Maybe we could enhance the interface by adding a checkbox or some other way to indicate the desire to update these values in the Media Library as well.
