Well, this exactly how the LibraryImage and LibraryDocument Managers work.
We agree this is not at all convenient and we'll definitely think of something for the upcoming release.
The only workaround for the time being is to switch back to the original RadEditor dialogs.
This is how to do it:
In the ~/Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/EditorToolsFile.xml
, delete the word Library
in the name of these tools:
ImageManager" text="Insert an image"/>
DocumentManager" text="Insert a document"/>
Thus you'll enable the classic Image and Document Managers and you'll be able to insert images from the file system only.
We are sorry for the inconvenience caused. Your Telerik account has been updated for drawing our attention to this.
