There are times when it is necessary to replace one image with another.

For example, I use a featured image to identify some posts of the same type. I want to replace this image with another one, but changing the image in the various posts is not feasible when there are hundreds of them.

This feature of replacing the image with another one solved the problem, the image being replaced in the library, everything else was left with the new image.

Attached to the ticket a simple design proposal.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

As said in #52372 it seems to require quite a lot of logic, and have many consequences.
