I have several complaints about how image attachments are now handled, versus how they used to be handled. Apparently, something changed in the past few months and it has made my user experience worse.
(1) My old test results, that used to have screenshots showing in TestRail, no longer show those screenshots. The actual text of the comments section shows that the attachment is still referenced, but they do not show up when viewing the test.
It used to be that when I uploaded an image (usually a screenshot) into a comment, the screenshot image itself was referenced in the comments, but did not show up as a separate attachment in the test results. Now, however, each attachment results in a separate attachment, which - when multiplied over several screenshots in a single comment - results in a very messy view:
It used to be that I could copy over an image’s reference from one test results / comment to another, making it faster to document multiple tests that referenced the same screenshot/image. For example, I could upload a single screenshot image, which would result in something like " " in the comments. Then I could just copy and paste that into other comments/results boxes and the screenshot would how up there, too. Now, however, this no longer works. The comment with the original screenshot shows the image, but the copies do not show the image. This slows down my workflow, and also makes it so that your servers have to store multiple copies of the same screenshots.
