Image alt text prefilled
« on: April 02, 2020, 17:08:42 pm »

I don't know since when this happens, but in VM 3.6.10 during the creation of a new product, the field for
image alt text is prefilled by the string "no image set" (in German "Keine Abbildung zugeordnet" ).
This string wasn't there before and looks very odd in the frontend, e.g. as subtitle in the fancybox...

Is this a bug?

I didn't check since when this happens. For VM and later the image alt text will be left blank unless you fill it manually.
In VM 3.6.10 it happens when you use the VM image upload feature. If you upload images via ftp and then synchronize the images in the VM tools view, the image alt text is still prefilled with the file name (which doesn't make sense from the image SEO point of view).
