#53013 accepted enhancement

Improve media library grid management tools

The list view & the media modal both support bulk selection tools that aren't available in the media library's grid view.

We should explore ways of moving the media grid view towards greater feature equivalence with these other views, including options such as:

  • One-click deletion
  • Select multiple items
  • View attachment titles (helps differentiate between two versions of an image)
  • Copy URL for attachment

Prompted by #51363. While a custom context menu is not something we consider to be viable for accessibility reasons, the intent of that ticket is definitely worthwhile.

Great suggestions @joedolson - these sounds like some nice improvements.

Note: re "select multiple items" - we do have a multi-select mode - click the "bulk select" button in the header to enter it. Did you mean something else?

Good call; I hadn't noticed that feature.
