Mobile App Doesn't Allow Images to Link to Media

  1. I'm on iOS 10.3.3 using Wordpress 8.9. It seems like a few minor versions ago the default linking behavior for an image embedded in a post went from linking to itself to no link or a manually specified link.

    I embed images in my posts with the intention of allowing viewers to view them full size in a Lightbox. With the newer mobile app, I can't do that because I'd need to know the full link to the media. I think I can do this by uploading the media first and then copying the link from there. But why can't the mobile app be like the web editor where I can specify linking to Media File, Attachment Page, or a Custom URL?

    That would seem to satisfy all use cases.

    Please consider this request as a possible enhancement.

    Thank you!
