Description

Presently there is no way to add or edit an attachment's description without downloading the file, deleting the attachment and re-attaching the file. An option to simply edit the exiting attachment's description or provide one if absent would be most useful.

I point out that projects imported from trac have all of the attachment descriptions removed. Requiring that the files themselves be downloaded from redmine, deleted and then uploaded again simply to add the descriptions increases the amount of conversion work considerably.

I agree, being able to edit descriptions can be usefull.

I point out that projects imported from trac have all of the attachment descriptions removed.

Trac attachment descriptions are now migrated (r1477). Thanks for pointing out this lack.

Would be simple and quite useful. Could you pleas implement this? I always have to play directly with the database do correct or post-add descriptions.
Thanks!

I also couldn't figure this out for the life of me - I even went so far as to look through the diff to understand how this is supposed to work. Turns out the edit icon has been placed in an extremely confusing position. Manu Ros SW also asked in the forum, and someone was helpful enough to post a screenshot that should clear it up: https://www.redmine.org/boards/1/topics/58827
