Rather than having to upload a new image, reassign and delete the existing one, allow us to upload a new image that will replace an existing one. The utility of this is, I believe, self-evident and would be a significant time saver.
So you're telling me I'll have to manually update an image across hundreds of pages now? Great way to spend a weekend I guess 💀💀💀
Additionally to updating the asset, also make the asset name editable after it has been uploaded. Our client had a pdf with the year it was made uploaded. If they wanted to provide a pdf with just the current year as the file title, they would have to reupload it with the right title and replace it everywhere in the website.... ridiculous...
Ugh. I just had to manually update numerous images used across ten different pages, one-by-one. I feel like I'm living in the dark ages of web development here. For the love of god, please prioritize asset replacement via the assets manager!
6 years later and still not available !
Replacement would avoid x versions of duplicates in the media section + meta description etc. should be not touched
Where is this at? This is desperately needed for large websites.
It's boggling that they didn't set this up in the first place. How is this a sustainable workflow? And why haven't they instituted this update, since this original feature request was submitted back in… 2017???
I update images all the time — images that show up on dozens of pages. This is a disasterous feature oversight for me.
It is September 2022 and webflow didn't manage to add this very basic feature. Five years later and we are still waiting!
Jumping on this thread. Right now I'm making a work around by turning a re-used, constantly updating data image into a symbol, but being able to simple update the image asset itself would be incredibly helpful.
Really need this feature!! I need to compress all images for better loading and now have to re-assign hundreds of images throughout. Thanks!
Will we ever see this happen?
Yes please - I would have hoped this to be basic functionality
Its a must! Still no replace :(
Has the definitely been 'shipped'?
Does this work now?
I can't find it.
Please inform us.
This has now been labeled as 'Shipped', but I'm not able to figure out how I actually does this!
Is this indeed shipped?
Good generic time of the day!
Slight "tweak" - we're replacing images with compressed/optimized ones and when we replace the image in the "asset" folder would like the images on/in pages/posts to be updated.
Yes, please and don't forget to include files like pdf and so on. I still have to to host pdf's myself even though webflow now supports pdf's. The fact that I cannot update ex. product pdf catalog linked at numerous places makes it a no way to go.
Any update on this?
