      Summary

      With the new Fabric Editor, it is no longer possible to add a link to an image, making the image clickable to open link address. This was standard functionality in the old editor.

      Environment

      Fabric Editor

      Steps to Reproduce

      1. Create a new page in Fabric Editor
      2. Add an image to your new page
      3. Click on the page in edit mode
      4. The link icon in the menu is now greyed out

      Expected Results

      When I click on the image in the Fabric Editor I expect to be able to click on the link icon in the menu, to add a link.

      Actual Results

      There is no option to add link to an image. When you click the image in the Fabric Editor the link icon in the menu is greyed out.

      Workaround
      Use an add-on like draw.io or Gliffy to import an image and add link to a transparent box covering the image.
