The Insert/Modify dialog is used by TinyMCE with HTML/WIKI text fields. The dialog does not replace, preview, resize, or update images properly; and console errors are generated when updating an existing image.

Steps to Reproduce


1. Create/open KB article.
2. In TinyMCE, click 'Insert/edit image' icon.
3. Select Type = Image Library.
4. Select an image from the library. Attach.
5. Return to the record, select the image you added via Image Library in previous steps.
6. Click 'Insert/edit image' icon.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR: Preview of image should be visible under Image field
ACTUAL BEHAVIOR: Preview is not shown

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR: Size is editable and save button is enabled
ACTUAL BEHAVIOR: Size is editable, but save button is greyed out

7. Select new image from magnifying glass

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR: Preview updates to new image and size is updated correctly
ACTUAL BEHAVIOR: Preview updates, but size is incorrect

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR: Should not see error: Uncaught TypeError: Cannot set property 'value' of null
ACTUAL BEHAVIOR: See error: Uncaught TypeError: Cannot set property 'value' of null

For HTML/TinyMCE issues with images, if the customer is on London prior to Patch 7 or on Madrid prior to Patch 1, you can load the newer version of the UI Page "html_insert_image_dialog", respectively.

For Wiki text field issues, unfortunately there are no workarounds.

For affected London releases prior to Patch 7, kindly download the XML file attached with name: "london_patch7_sys_ui_page_c20555420a0a0b1e00806f8e72e98c6a"
