I have two questions.  There are probably just checkboxes somewhere that I'm missing.  One, how can I get the CKEditor to display when editing the Summary of a Body field?  Also when adding an to an image field I want to also be able to choose from images that are already uploaded.  How can I do that?

Accepted answer

I've been advised:

1) That using CKEditor with the summary on a body field is not supported. If this is critical, you could create your own "summary" field independent of the body field. You could use CKEditor with that. 

2) That for browsing for images on an image field, you might find https://backdropcms.org/project/filefield_sources helpful.

I took a quick peek to see if I could see an option for adding CKEditor to the summary portion of body field and I am not seeing that option. Maybe there is a contrib module?

In terms of having an image browser available for image fields, I know that is something that has been worked on but is not yet in core.

Commenting on this issue might inspire some folks to work on it again. I believe the image browser for the body field is a fairly recent addition and something we were pretty excited about. I think it's logical to extend that to the image field and it's likely to happen if users show an interest.

Thanks for the replies.  I anticipate getting asked about these two topics.  Haven't gotten the filefield_sources to work yet.  For me, I can work around both of these things.
