      Description

      When creating a Choice, there is no editor for each of the choices. This forces using either a link to an outside image or file, or using text only for each of the choices displayed. In 1.9, I used small thumbnail images for each choice rather than text. It looks nicer IMO. However, I can't "include" those images with the 2.2 version of a Choice because there is no file picker when editing the Choice options.

      I realize this is a small issue, but if we are expected to embed/include media with each specific activity, this falls outside of that expectation.

              Thanks Thom, I think I'd only consider this if OU's improvements to allow us to hide/show the editor toolbar were added - having a editor on every field by default would make the display quite complex/busy
              I don't think there's a tracker issue to link to but they describe some improvements here:

              Agreed. I just wanted to list it as an improvement request since the "new" way of including files with activities is being pushed. In this particular case, I can't include the files. I have to link to the files. That's all. Otherwise, I can wait for this improvement.

              I also agree with the "busy-ness" of a screen full of editors. That was expected (I think) when they moved to the new way of managing files.

              Unassigning myself from this as I am not planning to work on this and to allow someone else to pick this up.
